Training / Education Classroom Seminars
This seminar provides a functional understanding of the principles involved in conducting a Design for Manufacture/Design for Assembly study. DFM/DFA can support both manual and automated processes resulting in significant cost savings through simpler designs with fewer components. Related topics include workstation layouts, ergonomic considerations and errorproofing. Actual examples from the automotive industry are used to support the lecture and participants complete actual design efficiency using the DFM/DFA worksheet.

Plastic - any class of synthetically-produced organic compounds capable of being molded and hardened into a specific shape or form. This course is designed to offer a basic understanding of plastics and plastic processing. Using plastics can be simple, but there is much more behind producing high performance plastic parts. This seminar will walk you through the molding process, provide a comprehensive look at the variables in the manufacturing mix, and review characteristics of typical automotive plastics such as PP, PVC, ABS, and more.

Polycarbonate (PC) glazing as a one-for-one glass replacement offers a 50% weight reduction, but exhibits several dB lower sound transmission loss (STL) in the low frequency range where tire and engine noise are dominant. In the high frequency range where wind noise is dominant, PC glazing offers an STL at least comparable to its glass counterpart, and an STL exceeding glass when this frequency range encompasses the glass coincidence frequency. However, a key value proposition of PC glazing is the opportunity for feature integration afforded by the injection molding process generally used for forming such glazing. Two component (2K) molding fuses a second shot of plastic material behind, and along the perimeter of, the transparent PC first shot. This second shot can incorporate features and implement functions that require additional components attached or peripheral to a glass version.

This paper discusses the importance of dissipative sound package system in the automotive industry and how it works. Although this is not a new technique at this stage, it is challenging to meet the subsystem target levels that were originally developed for parts based on barrier decoupler concept. This paper reviews the typical construction of a dissipative system and then emphasizes the importance of different layers of materials that are used in the construction, including what they can do and cannot do. The paper also discusses the importance of proper manufacturing of the part.

Advanced High Strength Steels (AHSS) are now commonly used in automotive body structural applications. The high strength of this grade classification is attractive to help reduce mass in the automotive body through reduction in thickness. Strength also supports improvements in safety requirements so that mass increases are minimized. In some specific grades of AHSS, energy absorption is possible in addition to the high strength. This course will review the definition and properties of AHSS and cover several common applications in automotive body structures.

WIP Standard
AS9103B
This standard is primarily intended to apply to new parts and products, but can also be applied to parts currently in production. The standard shall be applicable to all production processes, that influence the variation of KCs, as well as maintenance processes in which KCs are identified. It applies to assemblies and all levels of parts within an assembly, down to the basic materials including castings and forgings, and to organizations that are responsible for producing the design characteristics of the product. It does not apply to lab-scale, pilot, or pre-production processes. However, particular management of some KCs might be required using other methods than those described in the standard, during these phases of a program, when required by the customer or deemed appropriate by the organization (e.g., Engineering department requirement).

Event
Presentations in this session include welding (i.e., friction stir, ultrasonic, resistance, arc, laser, etc.) and joining (i.e., brazing, soldering, riveting, bolting, and adhesives) of similar or dissimilar materials (i.e., plastics, composites, aluminum, magnesium, titanium, and conventional and advanced high strength steels). Strength, fracture, and fatigue implications of these methodologies will be discussed.
