The aluminium sandwich system AFS® is globally unique and makes completely new options possible in application and processing. Both flat and complex forms of sandwich structures can be manufactured.
Possible areas of application: Vehicle manufacturing, electric vehicles, rail vehicles, shipbuilding as well as aerospace engineering.
AFS® has a lower weight yet significantly higher bending rigidity than solid sheets.
Possible areas of application: Tool machinery, laser machining centres as well as machine and plant construction of all kinds with fast-moving components.
Energy and sound are absorbed perfectly by the pore-type structure of the aluminium foam.
Possible areas of application: Hard-facing, blast mitigation, explosion protection and sound absorption walls for both rail and road transport as well as sound insulation in concert halls.
The three layers of the aluminium sandwich material have a metallurgical bond i.e. they are connected without adhesion – making AFS® particularly fire-resistant.
Possible areas of application: Safety doors, fireproof sound insulation for concert halls, fireproof battery enclosures for electric vehicles.
AFS® aluminium foam is known for its high stability, minimum weight and particularly fascinating open-pore structure – AFS® thus creates unique application opportunities in the fields of architecture, design and facade design.
In addition to its low weight and high stability, the AFS® metal foam is 100% recyclable and thus ideally suitable for use in the renewable energies segment e.g. for wind turbines and fuel cells.
Aluminium foam is extremely lightweight and particularly stable. Possible areas of application are in the sports equipment segment.
The metallic character of our aluminium metal foam allows it to be welded, bent, edge-formed, milled or ground like conventional aluminium – resulting in significant cost advantages and a wide range of different application possibilities.
Thanks to our long years of experience in production and finishing, we will be happy to provide you with support during the development and optimisation of your customised application – just ask!
