Weight reduction

Gestamp works continuously on developing lighter vehicles. Weight reduction is one of Gestamp's main research areas. This is one of the most demanded requirements in the automotive sector due to the need to improve fuel efficiency and to reduce CO2 emissions.
The body-in-white and chassis components are essential for achieving the emissions objectives. Gestamp provides innovative solutions to offer the best weight-reducing results and to meet the strictest requirements in the sector.
Extensive experience in hot stamping technology and the development of multi-material solutions have given rise to several alternatives for achieving lighter vehicles.

Safety

Gestamp works hard to achieve an increasingly safer car, focussing on identifying formulas that lead to greater safety both for the occupants of the vehicle and pedestrians.
Gestamp is a pioneer in manufacturing products using hot stamping, which is one of the most advanced technologies for improving performance and passenger safety in the event of a collision.
Furthermore, our high-strength steel products significantly improve the ability of vehicles to withstand impacts.
The improvements made in energy absorption in Gestamp products, regarding both chassis and body-in-white, increase the passive safety of vehicles. Furthermore, our mechanism unit is developing and creating passive safety solutions and it is obtaining good results in improving pedestrian safety thanks to bonnet hinges.
