QuickProd - Quick and simple assembly in automotive production enabled by a new casting technology

Automotive car makers increasingly use light-weight aluminium structures to reduce the environmental footprint of cars during life-of-use (lower energy consumption) and to allow for the heavy batteries used in electric vehicles.

The target of this project is to enable more sustainable car production patterns by developing a new modular mould concept and simulation tools to enable larger low-pressure die cast safety-critical parts and by this reduce the need for casting and welding of multiple parts, thus also reduced handling and transport between production sites.

Aludyne, SINTEF and IFE will during the project develop solutions including a new modular mould technology, sealings for metal-to-metal contact and a digital twin for the heat treatment process to optimize process and control deformations.
