Production of tailored semi-finished parts

Neue Materialien Fürth GmbH


Taking the complete process chain into account, we manufacture multilayered sheet metals with tailored properties using our four-high rolling machine.

Amongst others, the Accumulative Roll Bonding process is used for the production of sheets with, for example, 256 layers and a significantly enhanced mechanical strength. Furthermore, this process enables the combination of different metals and alloys and thus the production of sheet metals with tailored property gradients.

In addition, hybrid sheet materials with internal polymer layers are produced by means of warm rolling. The combination with the Tailor Heat Treated Blanks technology enables the enhancement of the formability of these materials applying a local short-term heat treatment using laser radiation.
