In this free webinar, Tobias Speth and Sebastian Klein explain how the combination of composite materials with metal parts can be enabled by increasing the static friction coefficient. Viewers will gain insight into the basics and the benefits of friction enhancement.
The speakers support their presentation with a case study that demonstrates how Friction Inserts from Freudenberg were utilized in safety-relevant components – namely the front-end module – to reduce the weight of the entire module by over 30%.
Key topics and takeaways:
- Understanding friction enhancement
- Maximizing the performance of composite materials in lightweight construction
- Securing connections of heterogeneous materials
- Enabling shared-parts strategies
