Tailored Products – the basics

When you are looking for a product that consolidates various components into a single stamping, you are looking at tailored products. Tailored products allow product design engineers to optimize part design from a variety of aluminum or steel blanks or coils. This results in reduced part weight and cost while maintaining or increasing performance.

Another significant benefit of tailored products is improved coil nesting. The same materials can be welded together to improve material utilization of individual components or to produce a blank or coil at a width that cannot be rolled or coated by conventional mill processing.
