The transition to electrification is creating many challenges for the global automotive industry. One of the most complex is how OEMs manage the need to produce vehicles with different powertrains (ICE, MHEV, PHEV, and BEV) at the same time.
ArcelorMittal Global R&D and ArcelorMittal Tailored Blanks have developed an innovative approach to reduce that complexity by integrating many parts into just one laser welded blank (LWB). Known as Multi Part Integration (MPI), the solution uses ArcelorMittal’s latest press hardenable steels (PHS) and hot stamping technology to create the single part.
For OEMS, the benefits include:
The speakers will include Jessé Paegle, Head of Product & Solution Development at ArcelorMittal Tailored Blanks, and Dr.-Ing. Joël Wilsius, a research engineer for steel automotive applications at ArcelorMittal Global R&D.
