ILS has a wealth of experience in the manufacture of highly stable aluminium parts for various sports car manufacturers. Lightweight yet durable elements are now also in demand in products for electric vehicles. Their low weight conserves the battery capacities of the engines and contributes to the highest possible power for the drive system of new models. On the booth ILS is showing visitors how the requirements of motor vehicle manufacturers can be implemented and does this with reference to forged and welded damper tubes, die cast spring plates and other components. To manufacture the shock absorber tubes aluminium forgings are joined to aluminium tubes by friction welding. Then the tubes are machined to a depth of 300 mm. This requires special expertise. Alongside the forging and friction welding stages, the company also offers as a one-stop supplier slide grinding, sandblasting, machining and surface finishing.
