The flexible rolling of Tailor Rolled Blanks is a new type of process tested in high volume production. The roll gap is continuously changed during the rolling process.

Tailor rolled blanks are ideal not only for vehicle body structural components, but also for suspension components that encounter different loads across their length. For instance, the component’s sheet thickness can be adapted optimally to suit the load and its function is improved and weight is significantly reduced. A lightweight construction potential of up to 10 kg can be attained per vehicle.
