Corus Hyfo launches the Tubular
On the Tube 2000 trade fair held
in Düsseldorf this spring, Corus launched THE
Tubular Blank, a laser welded product in steel,
aluminium or stainless steel specifically
developed for hydroforming applications in the
Unlike conventional tubes, THE
Tubular Blank is produced out of a blank,
allowing for custom-made solutions as extremely
thin-walled, conical or tailored. Besides
additional benefits as an exact-to-length and
burr-free product, the specific forming and
laser-welding process ensures an improved
formability and an A-class surface.
Now Corus Hyfo, the hydroforming
marketing unit, has organised an Open House Event
on September 28h, to celebrate the kick-off of
the commercial production of Tubular Blanks.
At the Open House the ambitions
and potentials of Corus Hyfo and Tubular Blanks
will be presented, and you will have the
opportunity to visit the new production location
for Tubular Blanks at Automotive Tailored Blanks
in Bunschoten, the Netherlands.
