Applications

Tailor welded products are primarily used in the automotive industry. Popular applications include: side frames, doors, pillars and rails. Yet there are many more possibilities! Possibilities that: reduce material costs and weight, improve product quality and performance, and optimize your production processes.

Moreover, there are many additional potential applications, in a wide variety of industries, including: alternative energy, appliance, trucking, rail car manufacturing, shipbuilding, construction, trailer manufacturing, elevator / escalator manufacturing, and furniture industries. In fact, tailor welded products can be applied most places where steel and aluminum is used!

Below are some examples of our automotive applications:
