Form-shaped blanks

Customised – Precise – Flexible

Knauf Interfer Automotive Blanks

Knauf Interfer Automotive Blanks GmbH is expanding the production area of the Steel business unit to include customised shaped blanks, blanks as well as trapezoids and parallelograms.

With the commissioning of the blanking line at the Duisburg production site in Germany, modern production technology was combined with the advantages of trimodal logistics at one of the most important logistics locations in Europe.

Here, engineered semi-finished products are produced for leading manufacturers and suppliers to the automotive industry. A wide range of steel grades and alloys are processed; from these primarily structural and crash parts are produced. These are used, for example, in the side impact protection of electric vehicles, A and B pillars and other structures for vehicle construction. Of course also with customised tools.
