Sustainable impact by soft magnetic composites in future motors

Peter Kjeldsteen
Senior Business Development Manager
Sintex a/s
At Sintex we have developed a strong supply chain enabling a significant reduction in CO2 emissions from the manufacturing process. Furthermore we have developed a software design tool that can optimize an electrical motor reducing both weight and copper consumption and in some cases even raise the efficiency of the motor. In this presentation we will demonstrate our agile software and show how we can reduce CO2, weight and cost on an industrial case.

Hydroforming - makes the impossible possible

Mikael Vuotari
PVI Hydroforming AB
Is it possible to manufacture a “one piece” product? There is a good chance if the right parameters are chosen. By having some basic understanding of hydroforming and material selection the probability increases for a cost-effective solution with tight tolerances and large numbers of parts out of tool with high repetitions. The benefits of hydroforming can be described as – complex shapes/geometrics is possible to achieve and with that comes a stronger, lighter- and more rigid body structure.

Full metal NVH solutions for the automotive industry

Thomas Iser
Key Account Manager
Hutchinson Stop-Choc GmbH & Co. KG
Every car manufacturer is faced with NVH issues (Noise – Vibration – Harshness). These can have an impact to safety infrastructure, to comfort and quality and can influence the durability of components. Elastic mounts can, beside the vibration isolation function, also decouple resonances within structures. Components can be specifically protected to ensure functionality and increase their life span. As the leading specialist for vibration control technology, we are part of the globally acting Hutchinson Group, a TOTAL Energies subsidiary. We will give you some insights into the field of noise and vibration harshness and want to show you how to solve those issues.

New bonding technologies for battery cooling plates of the future

Adrian Serna
Business Development Manager
AdvanTech International / Daido-Kogyo
New bonding techniques including fiber laser welding and adhesive allow for use of stronger aluminum alloys or multi materials. Weight reduction up to 30% can be achieved when compared to conventional bonding methods. This joining technology can reduce cycle times, improve process costs, lower energy consumption / CO2 output and offer material cost savings.

What's NEV? - NEV challenges in product development

Michael Forstner
Business Development & Innovative Products
Product development is always challenging and complex; in the NEV market, there are new boundary conditions: time to market, budget limits, less and/or missing experience. A well settled supplier can deliver added value to his above TIER and be part of the NEW challenge. GITIS has started years before to invest in tools and people to outperform the market and now we see the first results.
