Session 4: Advancements in Automotive Finishing
The presentation will highlight how material selection, the interaction of different processes and the tailored quality performance system can increase performance and reliability of surface treatment systems.
EV performance has evolved and improved rapidly over the last 5 years. Over this period consumers have held back from EV adoption due to a number of anxieties, such as vehicle range, charging time and availability and reliability. Car makers are trying to optimize the subsystems with regard to cost, performance and continued differentiation. The materials used in EV Batteries, inverters, motors and in radar and vision systems for advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS) have a significant and measurable impact on the cars performance.
Optimized material choices in combination with QPS systems (Quality and Performance Systems,) will assist to optimizing hardware to meet and exceed the reliability requirements and to avoid or reduce the number of vehicle recalls.
