An important sector for Inoxveneta is the automotive market. The company develops and provides stainless steel and aluminium components for exhaust and intake systems of high-performance cars and motorbikes, manufactured using hydroforming technology from stainless steel and aluminium tube, integrated with other complementary processes.
It uses the experience and knowledge developed in over 40 years of activity in the manufacturing of stainless steel tube and sheet for the production of high performance exhausts for cars and motorcycles. Thanks to the hydroforming technology Inoxveneta is able to offer high quality and performance products.
Also in the automotive sector, therefore, the hydroforming process enables the realization of innovative applications and more performant products characterized by:
Mufflers and silencers for motorcycles
Flanged exhaust systems
Y-shaped tube for DeNOx systems with SCR catalytic technology
Inoxveneta Automotive applications are designed for the most performance vehicles, such as “premium” and “sporting” or “commercial” vehicles, where are required a great fluid dynamics, lightness and durability of the products. High performance that must be combined with shrinking compartments spaces and operating characteristics more and more critical for temperature and vibration.
The know-how developed in over 40 years of experience in the stainless steel field combined with the hydroforming process, leads our company to propose distinctive capabilities in the automotive market applications.
One of these abilities is surely the production of “Y-pipes” that is the DeNOx catalytic systems with SCR technology (Selective Catalyst Reduction) where the injection of UWS (aqueous solution of urea) mixed with the exhaust gase,s brings the values of oxides of nitrogen (NOx) within the increasingly stringent limits that international environmental regulations impose.
The solutions studied and applied by Inoxveneta for this range of components are designed to optimize:
Inoxveneta has also developed excellent skills in relation to pre and post hydroforming (IHU) process, such as tube bending, annealing, laser cutting (including 3D laser cutting), welding (MIG, TIG, microplasma, laser): all available in-house and willing “in sequence” inside the Automotive department in the Vittorio Veneto factory.
