Conference 3 - Production Technology for Multi-Material Lightweight Components

Wednesday March 15 - 10:00am to 12:55pm
Mezzanine Hall 6 (611)

Conference 3 - Production Technology for Multi-Material Lightweight Components

  • Hybrid structures joining
  • Efficient manufacturing

Developed with success from a partnership with the AZL Aachen Center for Integrative Lightweight Production of RWTH Aachen in 2015 and 2016, and reissued in 2017, this session will cover multi-material lightweight components. The use of multi-material systems is increasing, and bringing along a host of challenges in production techniques, joining of hybrid parts, large scale production, etc.

This session includes a guided booth tour of selected companies
