Optimizing roll formed aluminum profiles

Dive into the future of material-efficient design, leveraging aluminum’s lightweight properties for enhanced fuel efficiency, recyclability, and structural innovation. Join us in reshaping the automotive industry, accelerating development processes, and reducing material costs. Explore our collaboration with the chair for Optimization of Mechanical Structures of the University of Wuppertal and Novelis, a leading producer of flat-rolled aluminum and the world’s largest recycler of aluminum. Discover how to design crashworthiness roll-formed profiles and stay ahead of the competition.

Dreidimensionale Inlay-Strukturoptimierung im Low-Speed Crash RCAR

As part of a project at Bergische Universität Wuppertal, funded by the German Ministry for Economic Affairs and Climate Action together with the Research Association of Automotive Technology (FAT) and the German Federation of Industrial Research Associations (AiF), methods for topology optimization of fully scalable three-dimensional frame structures for crash loads are being explored. The goal is to use flexible geometry descriptions to automatically optimize parts of vehicles using combined profiles.


We at Induvos are proud to announce that we’re supported by the EXIST Transfer of Research Grant, provided by the German Federal Ministry for Economic Affairs and Climate Action. This grant supports the commercialization of an innovative method for optimizing mechanical structures, developed at Bergische Universität Wuppertal. With funding of about 750,000 Euros, we’re working on developing advanced software. This software allows our customers to efficiently and reliably perform structure optimizations, marking a major milestone in technology development and application in the field of crash optimization.
