Mass Reduction for Mass Production: High Volume Manufacturing of CFRP, a paper co-presented by Felix Diebold, Development Lightweight Design, Audi, and Martin Reimers, Market Manager Composites, Dow Automotive Systems, will be given on 7 March (10 am) during JEC World 2018.
The paper details the development and mass production of a CFRP rear wall structure for the new Audi A8. The component was developed by Audi in collaboration with Voith Composites, Dow Automotive Systems and Zoltek. The CFRP technology was made possible through several factors:
The CFRP rear wall structure of the new Audi A8 – that can be viewed at Hall 5, Stand E42 – weighs 50% less than the previous generation, significantly increases torsional rigidity of the total vehicle and optimises driving and handling characteristics.
