Making light work of exhaust systems
The increasing weight reduction in the automotive industry requires the use of lighter, higher strength materials. Prototechnik is the Eberspächer Group’s competence center for light-weight construction and specializes in the development and construction of exhaust systems for increased performance, and exclusive acoustic design, for high-performance sport vehicles. In the in-house titanium production area, the light-weight construction experts combine excellent craftsmanship with high-quality industrial production. High-quality materials such as titanium and inconel are subjected to special welding processes in order to meet the high requirements for mechanical resilience, stability, durability and optics of the exhaust systems.
