3D Bent-and-Quenched (3DBQ) Fabrication

Free-standing NSX body structure highlighting the A-Pillars.
To create strong, thin NSX A-Pillars, tubing is heated, bent, and then immediately quenched for rapid cooling in water. This Acura world-first technology results in a pillar over an inch thinner than competitors’ and up to 50% lighter than conventional forming methods.
