2 Stimulating Innovation Material price Processes Functionality Emotion

3 Stimulating Innovation Material price Processes Functionality Emotion

4 Improved material cost - a driving force for material substitution Example: First-time application substititution of polyamide through polyproylene in an intake manifold application : Lower material price Fewer process steps, lower melting point and density offer a cost advantage of 15 % compared to polyamide ATZ, Röchling PP worldwide available Weight advantage of 15 % compared to polyamide Improved acoustic emission (especially at higher rpm and frequencies) due to lower density comp. to polyamide Target markets: Europe, China, Brazil 12-Nov-2012 Cluster New Materials 4

5 Stimulating Innovation Material price Processes Functionality Emotion

6 Reduction of process cost by selecting the best material combined with a suitable process Example: Tailgate of the Lamborghini Gallardo Spyder Material: Carbon fiber reinforced plastic, Process: RTM (Resin Transfer Molding) Volume: units/p.a. Advantage over aluminum as a result of lower tooling cost Quite demanding design can only be realized with CFRP Weight savings of 30 % over metal solution Images: Audi, ACE 12-Nov-2012 Cluster New Materials 6

7 Stimulating Innovation Material price Processes Functionality Emotion

8 Material and production innovations integrate several functions and reduce number of parts Example: Tail gate of BMW 5-Series GT Method: Aluminum die casting Weight reduction: 13 kgs Improved freedom / flexibility of design Reduction of joining necessities Reduced space requirements Sources: BMW Group, Heise, Rheinfelden, Auto News 12-Nov-2012 Cluster New Materials 8

9 Stimulating Innovation Material price Processes Functionality Emotion

10 New materials foster emotion Example: Superplastic Forming Extreme shaping of Al and Mg structures Technology: Superplastic forming properties of Al and Mg materials are being used through heat and pressure to generate extreme contours with a single-piece tool. Cycle-time: 2-10 minutes Source: Presentation Dr. Füller, Daimler, Nov-2012 Cluster New Materials Images: Magna/Daimler 10

21 Resources Sustainability Megatrends

22 Resources Status quo: Complex process and value chains - from the mine to processed materials - are necessary to sustain worldwide production processes Changes in the technology base of society require re-evalution of resources Economic dependency on countries with a virtual monopoly position are viewed more critically

23 Raw Materials Annual mining of raw materials increased from 10 bill. to 15 bill. tons over the course of 25 years Threats: Limited availability Variety of materials Dissipation 12-Nov-2012 Cluster New Materials 23
