Hot Stamping

Hot Stamping automotive

Hot stamping - or press hardening - is an established process used in automotive manufacturing to produce high-strength structural parts from thin sheet metal. Hot stamping thermally induces chemical changes in the metal at extremely high temperatures, while forming this into the desired profile.

This process enables the fabrication of complex shapes with exceptional strength-to-weight ratios, while virtually eliminating undesired phenomena such as spring back. Best-in-class rollers from Saint-Gobain Performance Ceramics & Refractories deliver unparalleled benefits, including distinctive mechanical, thermal and corrosion resistant characteristics.

Hot stamping rollers are ideal for the challenges associated with steel hardening and hot forming processes, delivering extended service life and reduced maintenance.
