As a result of the need for lightweight, low­cost and durable parts to complement today's automotive designs, a completely novel material forming process concept was conceived and developed. DWA's Hot Press processes ensure high quality products to its clients. Lightweight single­piece composite parts and simple lightweight bonded panels replace the complexities of conventional moulding and assembly.

The "heat and press" process offers several potential manufacturing and performance advantages over the conventional approach, including:

  • Very substantial materials cost reduction through the use of innovative platforms and materials.
  • Automation of reinforcement pre­form manufacturing.
  • Very substantial reductions in the labour costs of moulding.
  • Rapid auto parts assembly with greater room for durability and styling
