In this free, 60-minute webinar, experts from Alumobility demonstrate how a one-piece body side outer panel (BSO) can be produced in aluminum based on existing steel geometry while respecting the design and package space and achieving significant weight savings.
The experts also review the development history of this crucial body structure component and explain how an aluminum part can be made, including geometry and process, using a production steel part as a reference.
Key topics and takeaways:
- Learn how to produce a one-piece aluminum BSO by following geometry and tooling process guidelines
- Gain an understanding of the detailed BSO geometry guidelines relative to the aluminum grade and gauge used
- See highlights of the stamping process guidelines and the simulation tools to validate BSO geometry
