Production of stainless steel and aluminium hydroformed components for cars and motorcycles

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.


Hydroforming for the production of car and motorcycle silencers, exhaust systems and catalytic converters

Also in the automotive sector, therefore, the hydroforming process enables the realization of innovative applications and more performant products characterized by:

  • complex shapes and structures
  • reduced or absent presence of welded parts, improving also the structural characteristics
  • high repeatability and linearity
  • reduced weight, to reduce the fuel consumption as well as the environmental impact of vehicles

Production of stainless steel exhausts for sports car and motorcycle

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.
