Flexible and hybrid manufacturing of green aluminium to produce tailored adaptive crash-tolerant structures

Project description

Hybrid manufacturing technology for crash-tolerant structures

Handling unexpected events is difficult, particularly in today’s complex manufacturing environment. But it’s possible. The EU-funded FLEXCRASH project will develop a flexible and hybrid manufacturing technology by applying surface patterns using additive manufacturing onto preformed parts. Hybrid manufacturing offers a property tailoring capacity that allows the development of a new type of crash-tolerant structure with outstanding performance in an imminent crash. The project will define these structures according to the collision parameters identified by the different mixed traffic scenarios and are the ideal solutions for active safety devices. The technology can be applied to other safety-related structures in vehicle parts, decreasing the number of materials and processes used in crash structure manufacturing and reducing manufacturing costs.
