Innovations and Trends
Lightweight Aluminum Technology
Industries are continuously looking for solutions to lower mass without compromising efficiency of components. Our powder metallurgy (PM) lightweight aluminum technology allows customers to reduce mass, while improving wear resistance and thermal efficiency. For us, reduction shouldn’t come at a cost. That means our technology optimizes strength at the lightest weight.
The growing trend toward automotive electrification drives a long agenda of changes and challenges for both internal combustion engine vehicles (ICE) and the diverse range of full or partially electrified vehicles (full EV and Hybrid EV). Innovative, cost effective solutions are used to address these challenges, and our powder metallurgy (PM) technology can make this trend unstoppable.
A new alloy is reinventing an old technology and making engineers take a second look. GKN explores the role metal hydrides play to ensure safe and reliable zero-emission energy storage even for residential applications.
We are an expert in metal powder, combined knowledge with years of experience in the sinter processes. GKN offers a broad range of experience for developing AM processes and technologies that enables us to start the industrialisation of AM into automotive, industrial and aerospace.
GKN Powder Metallurgy is a globally connected business, generating big data and managing plant efficiencies and quality utilizing our advanced systems: Digital transformation, Ìndustry 4.0, IoT, cloud computing, tool machine 4.0 and digital shop floors.
