This session will give you insights into Lightweight Design, Hybrid Materials, Performance and Sustainability
Especially interesting for R&D Executives and Experts, Innovation Managers and Advanced Material Experts
Reduction of weight and costs with simultaneously increasing power efficiency are the main drivers in vehicle development and future drive train applications.
The lightweight design of vehicles can be achieved in many different ways that include material substitution, wall thickness reduction, redesign of the part shape and size, elimination of redundant parts, and consolidation of several parts into one or two without sacrificing the overall structural integrity. The combination of polymers and metals enables a hybrid design, merging the best of both worlds. To this extent, the metal coating of polymer parts can serve as an alternative to metals. The entire sup…
