Pre-galvanized crash management system with large deformation capacity

Especially with e-vehicles, the engine block is missing and the front is often shortened. Thus, the consequences of a front collision are often dramatic. The central load application often leads to strong intrusions and poses an extreme risk to the passengers. A crash management system from KIRCHHOFF Automotive protects against this, in which the load paths and components have been adapted to this load case. The newly developed CMS enables continuous energy absorption over long intrusion paths without complete failure, thus protecting the passengers and the battery. In addition, the innovative concept offers increased corrosion protection through the use of pre-galvanized steels.

Further key features:
- Use of a MAG welding process optimized for galvanized materials: for process-reliable and low-porosity welding of galvanized steels and to ensure sufficient paint adhesion, especially in the area of the joining zone
- Realization of a completely laser welded concept with optimized design
