Large Volume Automotive Composites Manufacturing & Applications

A session at Automotive Lightweight Materials 2012

  • Prof. Jan-Anders Månson

Wednesday 7th March, 2012

1:15pm to 3:15pm (LMT)


With their enormous weight-reduction potential, innovative composites are explored and developed for vehicle body and subsystem applications. The challenges though, as known to industry professionals, are the cost of developing and manufacturing them in large volume. This workshop will be focusing on both advantages of these high performance materials as well as strategies to bring down the cost in large volume manufacturing and applications.

What will be covered:

•Understanding safety and weight-reduction advantages of composites
•Breaking down the cost challenges and developing effective strategies to address them
•Highlighting strategic and economical parameters, such as investment and competence access, and their limitations for technology shifts
•Developing a cross-disciplinary interaction exposing the view from R&D, engineering and procurement
