5th Project-related committee meeting threelayer WES

In the course of lightweight developments in body-in-white construction, steel-intensive vehicle structures with aluminum outer skin components are of great importance. Due to the metallurgical incompatibility between steel and aluminum, resistance element welding (WES) is a particularly suitable joining solution for joining dissimilar material combinations.

On August 22, industrial representatives from various sectors met in Paderborn for the 5th project-accompanying committee meeting in the project "Process extension of resistance element welding for steel-intensive three-sheet hybrid mixed joints with two ultra-high-strength steel grades in the middle and base layers" (IGF 21517 N / FOSTA P 1404).

During the meeting, the latest results on the investigation of various three-layer joints were presented and the further procedure was coordinated with the project committee.
