Advanced Lightweighting Composite Process for Automotive Mass Production

Available On Demand until September 20, 2017


With growing demand for lighter, more fuel-efficient vehicles, the automotive industry has turned to materials suppliers to help find answers and provide new and innovative materials that can deliver solutions to the most challenging of applications. This 60-minute Webinar examines the new Direct Fluid Compression Molding Process (DFCM) and how it answers today’s demands and takes the next step toward massed produced composite automotive parts.

The Webinar also explores how DFCM’s cycle times below 60 seconds enable composite parts to be produced alongside their metallic counterparts with the same quality and consistency the industry requires.

An audience Q&A follows the technical presentation.
