AEC – Automotive Engineering Congress
Nürnberg, Germany

Automotive Engineering Congress will be held May 30–31 in conjunction with the Automotive Engineering Expo 2017 in Nürnberg. Stakeholders from different areas of the car industry and academia will gather to discuss development and trends within car body manufacturing, surface treatment and final assembly. AP&T will be represented by Senior Engineer Technology Development, Dr. Gerald Anyasador, who will focus on hot forming of aluminum. His talk is titled “Hot, W-temper and Warm Forming of High Strength Aluminum  –  A Comparison between Virtual Process Modeling and the Manufacturing on a Full-Scale Aluminum Production Line”.

4-7 June 2017
CHS2 Conference 2017
Atlanta, Georgia, USA

CHS2 – the sixth international conference on “Hot Sheet Metal Forming of High-Performance Steel” is being organized this year from June 4 to 7 in Atlanta, Georgia, USA. This is the second time the conference is being organized in North America where the technology for press hardening is in an expansion phase in terms of research, industrial development and implementation. AP&T and ESI will present the results of their collaboration in relation to simulating the aluminum hot forming process. Using virtual process modeling, tools and the forming process can be optimized in order to achieve the desired material properties in a manner that has not previously been possible. New possibilities are created to meet the requirements car manufacturers have for increasingly lighter, safer and more complex-shaped parts and components. High-strength aluminum (AA6xxx and AA7xxx) weighs only a third as much as press-hardened high-strength steel (22MnB5).

Chief Technical Officer, Technology Development Dr. Christian Koroschetz will represent AP&T.

Year of Innovation - Focus on Automation
Burbach, Germany

Under the Year of Innovation theme, we will discuss how the sheet metal forming industry can sustainably improve its productivity through innovative solutions and smart technology. 

The various points on the program will include talks and workshops under the leadership of experts from AP&T and Norda. 

Some of the points on the program: 

  • Automating the sheet metal forming industry 
  • Automation applications — case studies 
  • Practical demo and 3D show 
  • Press hardening news 
  • New press concept 
  • High volume production of fuel cell plates 
  • Aluminum hot forming 

And not least — BBQ and social networking! 

Some of the presentations will be held in English, but we will naturally make sure that the information is available in German as well.

Register to Mrs. Inga Ernesti by e-mail inga.ernesti@aptgroup.com or phone +49 (0) 2736 50977-22 no later than May 31.
Please note that the number of participants will be limited. 

We reserve the right to make changes to the program. 

28-30 June 2017
Automotive Engineering Exposition
Nagoya, Japan

Automotive Engineering Exposition in Nagoya will be held June 28-30. This expo is the largest in Japan for automotive engineers. This year the expo will focus on the latest technology in the automotive industry. AP&T will also show its total offering including, for example, a new generation of automation, a new press concept and complete production solutions for press hardening, heat exchanger plates and fuel cell plates. 

AP&T will be at Exhibit Booth 23.

12-15 July 2017
MF-Tokyo 2017
Tokyo, Japan

MF-Tokyo — Metal Forming & Fabricating Fair — will be held in the middle of July. Under the Connecting to the Future and Beyond theme, exhibitors from all over the world will present the latest developments in technology, equipment and processing skills for metal forming. AP&T will primarily focus on hot forming of aluminum and the opportunities afforded by the technology in terms of producing lighter and stronger parts. We will also show our total offering including, for example, the most recent generation of automation and complete production solutions for press hardening, heat exchanger plates and fuel cell plates. 

AP&T will give a talk at one of the technical seminars being organized during the expo. 

AP&T will be at Exhibit Booth 5–29.

CHFCE — China International Hydrogen and Fuel Cell Exhibition & Conference 2017
Beijing, China

China International Hydrogen and Fuel Cell Exhibition & Conference will be held August 28-30. It is one of the most important events in China as regards fuel cells and hydrogen. A large number of Chinese and international participants from both industry and academia will attend.

AP&T will present its high-profile and turnkey production solution for large-scale and cost-efficient manufacturing of fuel cell plates, which have been developed together with Cell Impact. The solution is based on AP&T's extensive experience of production lines for heat exchanger plates and Cell Impact's technology for high-speed forming, which increases the steel's formability and enables more complex and exact patterns to be created or material thickness to be reduced.
