KWD Automotive Group is a medium-sized, internationally active group of companies and produces body components and assemblies for vehicle construction. Among other things, the production program encompasses:
- Pressed and drawn parts
- Welded assemblies
- Exhaust systems
- Oil pans
- Injection-molded plastic parts
- Plastic-steel connections
WELDED ASSEMBLIES & BODY ASSEMBLIES
Welded assemblies are playing an increasingly important role in the logistical process chain of the automotive industry. For this, specific technical knowledge is required. Whether its a simple connection part or a complex body assembly such as a complete exhaust system – in matters of welded assemblies too, we are a competent partner for the automotive industry.
In addition to state-of-the-art manufacturing technologies, we also perform weld analyses in our own laboratories, including non-destructive testing with ultrasound technology and continuous series monitoring with 3D measurement technology.
TRIED-AND-TESTED SOLUTIONS IN LIGHTWEIGHT CONSTRUCTION
One of our main focuses is lightweight construction. With tried-and-tested solutions in aluminum, magnesium, steel, and composite materials, we support our customers in reducing the weight of essential structural elements in vehicle construction.
RESEARCH & DEVELOPMENT
Our current research and development projects in material, constructive, and systematic lightweight design are concerned with alternative joining processes in multi/material design. We are also developing methods for generating and validating lightweight construction potentials.
