Optimization of joining processes for new automotive metal-composite hybrid parts

Objective

The MetalMorphosis aims to develop a new range of novel metal-composite hybrid products for the automotive industry, based on the knowledge transfer from the Electromagnetic Forming (EMF) usage in joining dissimilar metal products and taking advantage of new developed composites and its capability to be bonded to metal.
MetalMorphosis approach is to combine and involve all the main players – Top-down and bottom-up in the value chain – from the automotive industry in the development of the next generation of metal-composites hybrid materials, ensuring a strong contribution from industrial drivers (towards those which are industry’s main needs in what concerns to automotive parts), an active involvement of SMEs (in the manufacturing of pilots / demonstrators), a valuable participation from RTD’s (performing research activities in multidisciplinary key knowledge areas and defining the drive beyond the state-of-the-art) and – last, but not the least – a major role to be played by multipliers organizations who will ensure the exploitation of projects’ main results towards the automotive market and other linked sectors.
MetalMorphosis will gather a wide – but simultaneously specialized and multidisciplinary – consortium composed by 9 European partners, according to their expertise areas – Welding and joining technologies, Composites, Industrial Manufacturing and Automotive OEM – which have strong interest in developing new joining processes for metal-composites and lightweight materials addressing the challenges for the automotive industry for the following 10 years.
