Joining in Car Body Engineering

ADJUSTING PRIORITIES

In the midst of a number of previously unimagined crises affecting the automotive industry, some re-evaluation and adjustment of priorities in automotive construction and planning is not an unlikely consequence. That also concerns body shop processes, naturally: Avoidance of critical dependencies, or greater flexibility in production have become rather important. At the same time, the need to analyse, understand and advance the sustainability of automobile production processes has become prominent and affects engineering decisions on materials and joining technologies as well. With all this going on, however, no OEM will compromise the safety or quality of its developments. So, for the body shop, the task is to find the best technical solutions that fulfil all requirements – at a viable cost.

Thus, from April 18 to 20, 2023, Automotive Circle’s international conference Joining in Car Body Engineering will once again discuss latest progress in all industrially relevant body shop processes with its network of experts, looking into the possibilities of new joining technologies, of widened application windows for established ones, as well as into ideas and examples for optimised, more efficient body shop concepts.

Visit us in Bad Nauheim, we look forward to seeing you!
