Aluminium foam component for Audi A2

Audi A2 (1999 - 2005) is a small aluminium based vehicle. Its structure made from classic aluminium needed to increase stiffeness of side rail by a foamed aluminium component.

We developed a stiffener component for the side rail of car body and its production begun at our partner Neuman Alufoam GmbH, Marktl in Austria. In the high stage of Audi A2 mass production preparation because of problems not related to our component, the vehicle was redesigned and our component was not necessary more.

Our stiffener was first automobile aluminium foam component prepared for mass production, in the world.
