An innovative improved manufacturing approach with direct application to electric automotive engineering
Aluminium composite materials are an industrial solution with multiple applications. As a result, the industrial manufacturing sector is in constant search for ways to improve their production. Among others, the battery-electric vehicle (BEV) technology is a significant factor for the intensification of their use. To address these challenges, the EU-funded FLAMINGo project will propose a novel metallurgical and forming combined approach for making automotive parts. FLAMINGo will focus on manufacturing strengthened aluminium (Al) metal matrix composites with elevated properties compared to current Al alloys used in automotive. By substituting steel components in BEV automotive parts, the project also aims to achieve a substantial weight reduction.
