Heat Treatment

Better Energy Absorption • Less Weight • Lower Cost

The primary use of heat treated tubes is for Door Impact Beams (DIB) but there are other applications. Ex. seat frames

Technologies for NTPs Door Impact Beam manufacturing process were developed from extensive engineering by Nippon Steel. The outcome is a durable tube, combining the exceptional attributes of extreme hardness with superior elongation for good energy absorption.
