Multifunctional Lightweight Structures from Tailored Cladded Blanks

Abstract:

Article Preview

In this paper, the use of partially or tailored cladded blanks is proposed for the production of multifunctional lightweight components. Therefore, the non-joined sheet areas will be formed to hollow structures by hydroforming subsequent to the partial cladding operation. The paper presents results of research work on the production processes and potential applications of partially cladded blanks in the field of thermal engineering and automotive engineering. Furthermore, it is focused on possible developments regarding the use of multiple materials and process combinations for sophisticated applications e.g. in the field of lightweight constructions.
