The car, aviation and space industries increasingly require stronger and lighter components which can contribute to more energy-efficient utilization and a higher degree of safety.

AP&T is the first company in the world to develop a new type of flexible production line that enables complex-shaped parts to be formed from several different types of high-strength aluminum.
