Joining in Car Body Engineering 2023
THE NORTH AMERICA NETWORK
MAKING CHANGE WORK
The only constant in life is change. This is certainly true for the automotive industry, which is currently once again reinventing itself on multiple levels – from a global shift toward vehicle electrification, to a huge increase in digitalization, to an ever-growing understanding of the necessity to produce sustainable products in a sustainable way.
All these changes may seem challenging or even daunting at times, but in the end, there is only one productive way to respond if you want to move forward, and that is to make them work.
When it comes to the body shop, a key role in making changes work is played by the joining technologies. They enable the growing number of advanced mixed material and lightweight design concepts, as well as the integration of new materials and additional components such as battery housings into the car body structure. They help meet sustainability targets and play an integral role in the growing digitalization infrastructure.
ABOUT THE CONFERENCE
Each year, the Automotive Circle brings together its leading network of international engineering experts at this conference, to share and discuss their latest technical progress reports and application-oriented innovations concerning all relevant joining technologies for series production in the body shop which are relevant to the North American market.
THE CONFERENCE ADDRESSES
- Car body engineers, managers and employees of OEM
- Suppliers and service providers
- Experts from institutes
All responsible for joining projects in the areas of pre-development, development, planning and production.
