Great Designs in Steel 2018 Presentations: A Closer Look at Lightweight Bumpers in Steels with Enhanced Strength

In case you missed it, Johan Nilsson from Gestamp presented: Press-Hardened and Roll-Formed Lightweight Bumpers in Steels with Enhanced Strength at Great Designs in Steel 2018.

The next generation of bumpers could find the industry seeing bumper reinforcements with 2000 MPa steel and crush boxes with 1200 MPa. The design of these increased MPa parts would reduce vehicle weight while allowing for improved crash characteristics.
