The adaptation of lighter weight materials brings challenges to every step of the manufacturing process from design through production. Plastics, aluminum, and carbon fiber each require special consideration that is different than the steel and sheet metal that automakers have relied upon for more than a century.
Peter Cate, Associate Marketing Director of New Business Platforms for Dow Automotive systems identifies the key issues and optimum solutions to finding the most affordable, efficient lightweight composite solutions to meet fuel efficiency and emissions targets. Two critical elements are selecting the right composite matrix material and choosing the right composite production process. See how VORAFORCE™ structural composites enable weight reduction, parts integration, and efficiencies in materials and processing.
