The newly designed Passat presented a challenge to manufacturing engineers: Find an effective way to cut the ultrahigh-strength steel with which the vehicle is produced. This new material improves static and dynamic torsion stiffness, as well as dynamic bending stiffness. From the manufacturer’s perspective, laser technology proved to offer the most economical method to cut the material. From the customer’s perspective, laser technology produces a car with better handling as a result of the stiffer body and with reduced fuel consumption as a result of the vehicle’s lower weight.
