Italian Auto Supplier Orders Second Press-Hardening Line

Tuesday, November 1, 2016

Italian automotive-part manufacturer U.form has placed an order for its second press-hardening line from AP&T due to increased demand for lighter and stronger vehicle parts from Fiat Chrysler Automobiles, which already has five press-hardening lines from AP&T.

U.form’s first press-hardening line, featuring a 1200-ton Oden press, furnace, automation equipment and control systems, was installed in October 2015 and is being used for the production of A- and B-pillars as well as other reinforcement parts for Alfa Giulia and Maserati Levante. When production of Alfa Romeo's new models, with a significantly larger percentage of press-hardened parts, begins at the end of 2016, scaling up of production is expected, which has led to the order for the second line.
