How truck OEMs can leverage advanced high strength steels in their designs

Available On-demand 45 Min

How can truck OEMs take advantage of automotive OEMs’ experience in — and expanding use of — advanced high strength steels (AHSS) for structural components? Which higher strength steel applications make sense now for truck design: Increased crash safety? Lightweighting? Increased payloads? Reduced costs through reduced steel thicknesses?

This 45-minute, interactive webinar will focus on challenges facing truck manufacturers:

  • Fuel Economy — how to increase fuel efficiency by using AHSS steels at reduced thicknesses, for both reduced weights and reduced steel costs.
  • Payload — achieve higher carrying capacities by using stronger steels.
  • Safety — leverage AHSS-specific crash stimulations to explore innovative new designs for increased protection for operators, EV batteries, and hydrogen tanks.
  • Driving Performance — select the appropriate AHSS steel to provide you the formability and flangeability needed for new part geometries for increased structural stiffness.
  • Quality — achieve long-lasting and simplified (consolidated) component designs, with high manufacturing repeatability, via advanced AHSS forming simulations.
  • Sustainability (Electrification) — meet the challenges of electric truck platforms with new, AHSS-based component designs.
