Ultra-Lightweight Structural Technologies

Reduced Weight, Increased Stiffness & Crash Performance
Premier automakers rely on DURA for innovative solutions that keep pace with CAFE and safety standards.

DURA structural architectures leave no stone unturned in the journey for improved vehicle range.

Smart combinations of aluminum castings, stretch-bended profiles, composite materials, and high strength alloys are integrated using DURA in-house manufacturing technologies. The result is module optimization, engineered to provide the perfect fusion of function, form and sustainable performance.

Ultra-Lightweight Structural BIW Architectures

For more than three decades, DURA has engineered and manufactured lightweight structures for luxury and performance nameplates. Working in unison, our computer analysis teams collaborate with DURA in-house German tool makers and assembly artisans, to craft the perfect architecture.
