MetalMorphosis project brochure

The MetalMorphosis research project aimed at developing innovating joining processes for composites and metals, based on the electromagnetic pulse technology. This promising technology allows a range of new hybrid metal-composite components to be manufactured, and that matches the current trend towards lightweight materials in the automotive industry. Based on the novel insights acquired, demonstrator parts specifically targeted at the automotive market were developed, namely a hybrid metal-composite brake pedal and shock absorber.
