Volkswagen relies on hydroforming for rear axle
Reduced Number of Components
The Volkswagen AG relies on a new hydroforming
production system for volume production of rear axle
components for the A-platform 4WD models (VW Bora, VW
Golf, Audi TT and Audi A3), delievered by Schuler
Hydroforming GmbH & Co. KG. In comparison with the
conventional rear axle production where welded deep drawn
components are used, the automotive industry now enjoys
the many advantages hydroforming has to offer. With
hydroforming rear axle components such as the main tube,
the control arm and the filler tube can be produced at
lower cost, better quality and with increased rigidity.
In the first year of volume production 750.000
hydroformed components will leave the production line.
