In recent years new energy vehicles (NEVs), with their promise of reducing pollution and conserving our energy reserves, have raced into the mainstream.
Not only has E-mobility changed the source of energy for propulsion but it has also stimulated the automotive industry to introduce new materials with the focus on reducing vehicle weight and thereby enhancing fuel and energy efficiency. In order to fulfil such new demands several key areas for future cars will need modifying, such as; increased corrosion protection performance, new friction and heat loosening requirements for fasteners as well as new specifications for multiple mounting.
To achieve these changes a major part of the automotive architecture needs to be redesigned, creating opportunities throughout the supply chain.
This webinar will give you an overview of various changes expected in automotive design and will focus on some of the changes and opportunities for the plating industry.
