A cost-sensitive like the Golf cannot the use of expensive high-strength steel to mass, so instead the company a warm-forming process for its conventional unibody.

This let engineers trim from the steel while the necessary strength, he said. steel, in addition to being poses the problem of spring-back the stamping process into an shape. The Golf’s steel is to this purpose, but it falls in the of conventional steel, said

This warm-forming process the steel to 950°C (1740°F) to it. Then the stamping die must be back to ambient temperature stamping the next panel, a that limits production to one stamping per minute, he said.

This process permits thickness of the sheet metal the stamping, which means a stamping can substitute for multiple on the previous model. That enough to recoup the added of warm forming, Hackenberg “In total we are less expensive.”

warm forming is saving mass, there is more to be as VW becomes more experienced the process, Hackenberg added. “We can another five or six kilograms.”
