Crash Management Systems
Constellium is developing the next generation of Crash Management Systems to help automakers meet the increasing demand for lighter vehicles and higher safety requirements. Thanks to our proprietary portfolio of high-strength (HSA6®) and high-crash (HCA6®) alloys, our tailored solutions meet our customers' weight and cost targets.
A Full-Service Partner, from Design to Production
Constellium supplies extrusion-based Crash Management Systems for global automotive programs. Our unique full-service capabilities enable us to provide our customers with world-class safety solutions that are optimized for low- and high-speed crash load cases such as Pole, MPDB, and SmallOverlap.
We support the entire value chain:
- Alloy development
- Extrusion and product design
- Product optimization
- In-house testing
- Series production
With our design and development teams, a dedicated University Technology Center, and a network of plants in Europe, the U.S., and China, we partner with the world’s leading OEMs to supply Crash Management Systems for some of the most exciting vehicles on the road, including the electric Audi e-tron GT, the BMW X5, and many more.
Constellium’s Safety Solutions
Our extensive offer of safety components includes both highly complex front and rear Crash Management Systems as well as side impact beams.
Our solutions enable maximum lightweight construction and thus reduce the weight of the overall vehicle as they are up to 40% lighter than steel and 10% lighter than conventional aluminium solutions thanks to our new alloys. This allows for improved fuel economy and lower emissions. For electric vehicles, weight savings means greater range.
High Recycled Content
Characterized by its high recyclability and its specific capacity to use a higher level of postconsumer scrap, our HSA6 portfolio can accept >80% recycled material. This positions Constellium ideally to meet the increasing focus on sustainability and CO2 footprint.
