SCOPE & METHOD DESCRIPTION

AluMag® has analyzed the composite / carbon fiber threat against cast aluminum within suspension and BIW applications.

The main goal was to provide the client [European aluminum foundry] with an application overview outlining the composite / carbon fiber threat by means of a timeline “What to expect when”.

The timeline was based on existing AluMag® market information as well as on 20 interviews with industry experts representing OEMs, carbon fiber producers and tool makers.
