Multi Part Integration at SAFER


Jesse Paegle, head of product and solution development at ArcelorMittal Tailored Blanks will present ArcelorMittal’s Multi Part Integration (MPI) concept at the SAFER ‘Batteries in automotive crashes’ virtual seminar on 1 September 2021. The seminar will explore the challenges of batteries in automotive crashes.

MPI incorporates many parts into one laser welded blank (LWB). It uses press hardenable steels (PHS) and hot stamping LWB technology to replace multiple parts with just one part. MPI has many advantages including simplifying production for OEMs, lightweighting the vehicle, and enhancing the safety of the part.

ArcelorMittal’s MPI concept can be applied to any complex vehicle part, including those involved in the protection of the battery box. ArcelorMittal has already demonstrated how the MPI concept can be applied to parts such as the rear H-frame of an SUV, and the double door-ring. All MPI solutions are validated against relevant safety requirements for the global market.
