Advanced Joining and Materials Technologies for Lightweight Vehicles


The rush to increase vehicle content of lightweight materials is demanding increasingly sophisticated techniques for joining non-traditional materials in non-traditional applications. The use of adhesives in body-in-white assembly is increasing at a feverish pace, and many OEMs and suppliers are investing heavily in efficient, high-volume methods for joining dissimilar materials.

In this Technical Webinar from the editors of SAE International, experts discuss the latest advances in material-joining practices and technology as well as which materials and joining techniques show the most promise for near-term success.

An audience Q&A follows the technical presentation.
