This three day in-depth automotive seminar will provide information on material selection, design procedures, processing techniques, and the assembly methods required when designing with plastics in the automotive field.
Attendees will focus on what to expect from a polymeric material and discuss in detail how to make the design process as easy as possible and fully comply with FMVSS. In addition, this course will enable the automotive OEM and his supplier (1st, 2nd, or 3rd-tier) to have more effective communication. The OEMs will learn how to initiate their concepts on a solid, communal basis, thus allowing for cost-efficiencies and fewer second thoughts when they understand the scientific basis, and the fine tuning that comes with experience. A large number of automotive case histories will explain the step-by-step procedures to successful and robust designs.
This course is targeted at automotive designers, product managers, project managers, research engineers, material engineers, graduate and undergraduate students, or anyone involved in the development and manufacture of automotive plastic products and systems. Attended by over 18,300 participants in over 30 years.
Its content is intended for a variety of automotive segments such as interior systems, telematics, powertrain, safety systems, chassis, exterior trim, front end modules, crash management, electronics, and any other automotive and transportation applications which use plastic resins.
Over 1,300 slides will be used during the seminar. A number of case histories, including more than 15 short movies, will show you step-by-step procedures to successful and robust designs. In addition to the 1,300 color slides binder, each attendee will receive a free copy of the 438 pages 8th English edition of Designing Plastic Parts for Assembly textbook - a $159.99 value. Plan to attend and come prepared with questions to ask or experiences to share.
