Integration Potential

Increasing flexibility
while reducing costs.

Casting provides great leeway in the geometric component design, making it possible for design engineers to integrate a variety of functions. A fundamental benefit after all, integrating adjacent components is a decisive lever for cost effectiveness.

By design, VarioStruct features open cross sections which provides enhanced flexibility over its closed section counterparts. This principle creates a previously inconceivable potential for additional functionality. For example, cable ducts, communications channels, cladding, electric motors and much more can be integrated in a space-saving way. As a result, VarioStruct not only gives engineers a lot of scope for freedom of design, it also removes the need for time-consuming joining operations and reduces costs in the body shell.
