AUTOMOTIVE ENGINEERING CONGRESS 2013

Connecting outstanding experts in car body manufacturing, painting and assembly

AUTOMOTIVE ENGINEERING CONGRESS 2013

A sucesfull congress!

More than 200 international automotive engineers used the accompanying AUTOMOTIVE ENGINEERIN CONGRESS 2013 to discuss new developments in efficient car body product and process engineering. 64 technical presentations by trailblazing suppliers and research institutions provided profound insights into projects that currently are under development as well as new products ready to enter the market, covering the entire process chain from tool making to the press shop and body shop to surface technology and the paint shop.

In addition, high-ranking representatives of important international OEM (Audi, Daimler, Honda, Jaguar Land Rover, Opel/GM, Renault, Volvo) explained their approaches and developments for future car body engineering in the plenary session of the congress. These keynote presentations made clear that there is no single valid strategy to achieve an efficient car body lightweight design. While everybody assigns top priority to this goal, the viable roads towards it differ for each OEM according to their product range and production constraints and conditions. Thus, future lightweight car bodies will very likely feature the entire range of technical solutions, from an intense mix of all available materials to the predominant use of light metals such as aluminium and magnesium to pure steel car bodies relying on the extensive use of high and ultra-high strength alloys.
