29 to 30 May 2018
Especially for the automotive industry, lightweight construction is a key technology for the development of sustainable and resource-saving mobility. Automotive manufacturers are facing different priorities such as customer desires, competition and legislation at the same time.
Hybrid structures that combine the advantages of different materials (e.g. fibre reinforced plastics and metals) feature an especially high potential for weight reduction whilst increasing the functionality of components. The future efficient use of function-integrated hybrid structures in vehicle manufacturing requires major innovations in the area of vehicle development and production technology.
There is a particularly high demand for new methods and technologies for “affordable” lightweight constructions for high-volume production considering the increasing requirements in terms of variant diversity, safety and quality.
For these reasons, new methods and technologies for the development and production of function-oriented, hybrid and high-volume production-ready lightweight solutions in vehicle manufacturing as well as the exchange of experience among experts from industry and science are in the limelight of this conference.
