With the HFQ® technology (Hot Form Quench), the fischer group is able to produce previously unknown lightweight components with maximum strength. Aluminum hot forming provides new freedom in the design and use of complex yet lightweight components made from high quality aluminum-copper alloys (2XXX), aluminum-magnesium-silicon alloys (6XXX) and aluminum-zinc alloys (7XXX).
Components or subassemblies previously manufactured in several stages or individually assembled can now be easily and inexpensively formed in a single pass. Due to the almost complete elimination of disrupting springback effects, narrowest tolerances can be achieved. Thanks to the high strengths achievable, additional lightweight effects are feasible through further wall thickness reductions or dispensing with no longer required reinforcements.
