Trends in Car Body Manufacturing using Modern Steel Types


This workshop provides a holistic overview of current trends in car body manufacturing. We will focus on car body manufacturing including doors, lids and caps made from modern steel types and will study their ways of production, designation, anti-corrosive properties and relevant finishing processes. During the lecture, there will be enough time to discuss current developments and examples of application.

Course Details

During the workshop, we first will talk about current trends in car body manufacturing and analyse a few selected examples. Afterwards, we will discuss relevant modern steel types, their mechanical and anti-corrosive properties, as well as their place in car body manufacturing. We will explain the forming and joining technologies used for different material types through several real life examples and will talk about the material-specific coating and painting processes.
All topics will be discussed in connection with the latest products and production technologies available.

We focus on engineers and workers in the car-manufacturing and automotive industries, who wish to deepen their basic knowledge and discuss current developments and application examples.

Prof. Dr.-Ing. Udo Müller has been an FHWS lecturer for machine design and car body manufacturing since 2004, and has worked in senior positions in the automotive sector, focused on vehicle and car-body manufacturing.
