AP&T receives 2017 Quality Innovation Award

24 November 2017

AP&T, which is headquartered in Ulricehamn, Sweden, has received yet another prestigious award for its unique production solution for the forming of high-strength aluminum. The 2017 Quality Innovation Award was conferred by SIQ — Swedish Institute for Quality. 

“We are very proud that the results of our most recent innovation are being recognized and rewarded by SIQ. Our new technology for forming high-strength aluminum creates true customer benefit, and allows the automotive industry to meet demands for lighter, safer and more energy-efficient cars,” says Dr. Christian Koroschetz, CTO, Technology Development at AP&T. 

The committee of judges shared the following justification for its decision: “By adopting a holistic and systematic approach, which combines many different competencies, a new rational technology for complex forming of high-strength aluminum has been developed. The new technology enables radical reduction of the material’s thickness and weight, which leads to lower fuel consumption and less environmental impact — at the same time that crashworthiness increases. This combination makes the innovation an important breakthrough in aluminum production technology.”

Earlier this year AP&T received the international 2017 Altair Enlighten Award, which recognizes significant weight-saving innovations for the car industry.
