Sustainable Manufacture of Future Engine Components

Goals/targets Key engine materials include cast irons of different grades as well as light metals as aluminium alone or in combination. From a manufacturing point of view, robust casting and machining processes based on generic strategies and unified concepts are of great importance. Automotive industry, suppliers and R&D organisations here jointly address: robust processing and cast iron alloy development, unified concept for improved machining strategies and new strategies to handle material variation in machining including theory, methods and new approaches.
