By forming several metals together, the unique advantages of the materials can be combined and their disadvantages minimised at the same time. This allows us, for example, to combine lightness and strength. The car connecting rod shown top left has a very strong aluminium alloy on the inside and a tough aluminium alloy with optimum corrosion protection on the outside. We use hybrid forging technology with materials that are completely different, bringing together the individual components by gluing or pin stamping (patented) for example. The transverse control arm shown top right is extremely resilient and has an excellent power/weight ratio thanks to the combination of aluminium and carbon.
