The stamping plant provides the sheet metal parts for the bodywork. The manufacturing process begins with extremely heavy rolls of steel and aluminum sheet, the so-called coils. In the coil systems, the bands are initially cut to form boards and then pulled with the most modern, fully automated high-speed servo presses in several steps, bent and punched. This results in molded parts such as side frames, doors, hoods and roofs.
The BMW Group uses a function-oriented mix of proven deep-drawing steels and high and higher strength materials.In the item production we already lay the basis for the unique design and the extremely rigid, but lightweight bodies of our vehicles.
The technology used in the BMW Group is the most advanced worldwide. The available total press capacity of a plant is up to 10,000 tons.
