Lightweight car body, light but strong!
Based on our advanced technologies accumulated by keeping pace with the growth of automotive parts industry, we are promoting technology innovation through the development of light and strong new materials and lightweighting technology after continued R&Ds.
A forming process using press after preheating steel plate; divided into warm forming and hot forming; applied differently depending on the type/purpose of the material or product
A metal-working process used to manufacture long bars or plates with a homogeneous section; designed to produce long products which are smaller than a material (billet) in terms of a sectional area by inserting it into the container and pressing with die (mold)
At laser welding, aluminum reveals low process efficiency and causes a weld defect such as porosity and crack due to high reflected light and shrinkage compared to steel. Therefore, it can supply filler wire or modulate laser beam to reduce such problem and get good weld quality. For lightweighting and improvement of productivity, we applied it to doors for the first time in the Republic of Korea.
A process used in roll forming and welding by adopting a high-speed laser radiation system called ‘scanner’ for consecutive joining on the cross section of the rail-shaped product which has been progressively formed through roll forming; This technology expected to b enhance productivity through process reduction and representation of high quality; commonly used in the manufacture of bumper back beam
A joining system which forms an interlock by making the rivet pierce through base metal by pressure from the servo press and deforming the base metal through the expansion of the rivet by diet simultaneously
A process joining in a one direction through the formation of threads on the base metal by softening and drilling a workpiece through frictional heat generated by high-speed rotation
A solid-state joining process at temperature lower than a melting point for the workpiece, using frictional heat generated between the workpiece and rotating tool
A method to insert the rivet into the pre-processed pre-hole base metal and assembling it to the base metal through plastic deformation, using die
