with this newsletter the Havel metal foam would like to inform you again about the latest developments and thank you for the good cooperation. We hope you enjoy reading.
Best regards Your Havel metal foam - Team
Battery box of the future
The use of lightweight components is becoming increasingly important for the production of vehicles. Future-oriented developments of electrically driven vehicles only achieve their efficiency goals through the consistent use of extremely lightweight materials such as aluminum. Aluminum foam combines many advantages, such as extreme lightness, ductility, recyclability and excellent absorption and conductivity, making it ideal for the automotive industry of the future.
Havel metal foam offers a product tailored to the customer. From drawing to serial production, we provide everything.
In development & in deployment
A trend-setting development of the Havel metal foam is the battery housing for electric vehicles. Low weight, good crash behavior, high rigidity and possibilities for temperature regulation predestine these newly developed vehicle components for use in electric vehicles.
The battery case of the Havel Lite® series is made entirely of aluminum foam sandwiches. Due to the versatile properties of the foam, the product is ideally suited for use as a sheathing of batteries in the automotive industry.
components can be foamed
foamed pipes and high thermal conductivity enable an efficient heating and cooling system
incombustible, meets fire protection standard (DIN EN 45545-2)
achieves fire resistance classes e.g. E30 (DIN EN 13501-2, DIN EN 1363-1)
partitions between the battery cells act as spacers and crash absorbers
energy absorption and good crash behavior (tested with side crash test and bollard test)
absorption of vibrations, shocks and noises
simple mechanical processing possible (drilling, sawing, milling, welding)
different alloys possible
pure metallic bond
no toxic gases (DIN EN 45545-2)
good electromagnetic shielding

According to customer requirements, various forms can be foamed three-dimensionally with aluminum foam. This gives you the benefits of metal foam sandwiches. The cover layers are brought into shape before foaming. They consist of steel, aluminum, copper or stainless steel.
Application areas & possibilities
foaming of cooling tubes and cable ducts
doors for trains, subway and automotive
all parts are made to customer specifications
customized production of drawing parts up to series production
excellent damping properties with minimal added weight
improvement of crash values in motor vehicles
repairable and easily machinable
rigid and durable
