Automotive body-in-white sheets
Constellium works closely with the world’s major OEMs to develop a comprehensive body sheet product range, underscoring our commitment to providing strong, formable and lightweight materials with impeccable surface quality for the automotive industry.
A full range of automotive sheets, form sections and coil solutions
We provide a wide range of body-in-white aluminium sheets, form sections and coil solutions for automotive body-in-white (interior and exterior parts and panels). Our high-strength alloys have exceptional surface quality. They also incorporate downgauging possibilities, excellent strength-to-weight ratio, formability properties, and full recycling compatibility.
Close collaboration with leading manufacturers
In recent years, we have heavily invested in upgrading our production unit at Neuf-Brisach (France). This state-of-the art facility enables us to address 100% of the body-in-white market in Europe. Working closely with leading OEMs, our engineers have developed a range of new products to meet key customer specifications. These include:
With these and other innovative products we satisfy existing customer needs while meeting the requirements of future generations of aluminium-intensive vehicles.
World-class R&D capabilities
Our Voreppe (France) research center covers the entire automotive value chain. The center provides a deep knowledge of aluminium applications and experience acquired through collaborative projects in highly innovative sectors such as aerospace.
As part of our continuing commitment to our customers in their pursuit of lightweighting and its associated benefits, we have significantly invested in surface inspection and chemical conversion when upgrading production facilities. As a result, we are better able to satisfy the demands of our current customers and to anticipate future developments in the aluminium automotive body market.
Collaboration with customers has led to high-performance solutions with results such as significant weight reductions in body-in-white sheets for vehicle hoods.
