Proceedings from AUTOMOTIVE & MASS TRANSPORTATION Forum focusing on how far away is composite for mass production.


With OEMs increasing focus on sustainable mobility and alternative energy sources - as well as energy saving and CO2 emission reduction - the search for alternative technologies to bring massive weight reductions and new structural solutions is Intensifying.

 

Composite technologies are not new to the automotive industry. Glass and polyester have been used in mass production for a long time. Recently many companies are developing new processing techniques and high performance materials.

 

Polymer composites have a lot of advantages such as lower cost, design freedom, high production speed and so on. Long fiber reinforced thermoplastics (LFT) molding is also one of the best technologies which can reduce both part cost and weight simultaneously. Renewable materials are already in series production. The use of carbon fiber reinforced plastics for mass-produced cars is starting to be a reality, finding a reliable, competitive environmentally friendly material able to deliver 400 to 800 cars per week. In this forum OEMs and tiers 1 will discuss about
their choice and strategy.
