This project has received funding from the European Union’s Seventh Framework Programme for research, technological development and demonstration under grant agreement no. 604240.
The LoCoLite project will develop a production system for the manufacture of lightweight aluminium panel components with high-strength and complex-shapes for car body and chassis structures at economical cost.
The development is based on a patented, solution Heat treatment, cold die Forming and Quenching (HFQ) materials processing technology.
The LoCoLite project is to transfer the lab-proven process into a medium volume production process by developing a production system equipped with a series of enabling technologies required for the hot-stamping of Aluminium panels.
