Joining of Advanced Materials 2017

2017 Joining of Advanced Materials for the Automotive Industry Conference

Ma2JIC is an industry/university collaborative research center for the joining of materials whose mission is “to broaden the knowledge and application of joining techniques that improve the quality of joined structures while developing the next generation of engineers.”

Ma2JIC will be holding a two-day meeting where industry, national laboratories, and academia come together to review projects, discuss updates, consider project proposals, and discuss new business.

Ma2JIC welcomes AWS workshop participants and potential members to attend and learn about the center through our technical presentations regarding our 30 research projects relating to: Material Performance, Modeling, Process Innovation and Development, Additive Manufacturing and Weldabilty Testing and Evaluation.

As new and advance materials are being deployed in the manufacturing industries, welding and joining present a major challenge to US engineers and technicians involved in product design and manufacturing.

The automotive industry is a prime example in applying these advanced but sometimes difficult to weld materials. As auto designs embrace the multi-materials vehicle body and new power train concepts joining of dissimilar materials becomes an important subject in terms of design, processes, efficiency and structural performance.

This seminar will cover the joining of advanced materials in the areas of:

  • Power Train
  • Electrification
  • Body in White

It will cover the welding/Joining of these advance state of the art materials and designs. Topics will range from advanced materials process concepts, numerical analysis and performance to solving production and product quality problems.
