Profil

As the world’s only manufacturer of both steel and aluminum, Kobe Steel con tributes to lighter weight automobiles through cutting-edge steel, aluminum alloys and solution technologies. We will expand our share of the global market and firmly secure growth in the automotive field.

Achieving lighter automobiles requires the joining of materials such as UHSS to aluminum and UHSS to UHSS. Kobe Steel proposes a variety of welding solutions that take customers’ existing equipment into consideration.
 
We capitalized on our expertise in materials and strength in welding materials to develop proprietary Element Arc Spot Welding (EASW) technology for dissimilar materials. The technology can utilize existing arc welding equipment for cost effectiveness, while allowing the welding of dissimilar materials such as ultra highstrength steel with aluminum.
