The markets: Automotive (2020)
As the global auto industry hurtles toward its confrontation with US fuel economy and European Union (EU) emissions standards in 2017, the pressure built to find more radical solutions to lightweighting.

Continuous fiber-reinforced thermoplastics data added to CAMPUS database

Continuous fiber-reinforced thermoplastics data added to CAMPUS database
The new data, which will be released in October, is the result of an ongoing material standardization and characterization effort led by German reinforced plastics company AVK.

Automated joining of hybrid metal-thermoplastic composite structures

Automated joining of hybrid metal-thermoplastic composite structures
The FlexHyJoin production cell combines surface structuring, induction and laser joining and NDT for automotive mass production.
