Fraunhofer and ARCI form partnership in automotive technology research

September 28, 2011

The International Advanced Research Centre for Powder Metallurgy & New Materials (ARCI) Hyderabad of India and the Fraunhofer Society of Germany have signed a path breaking cooperative R&D agreement in the field of automotive technologies.

This partnership is a result of the dialogue between the Indian Core Group on Automotive R&D (CAR) and German Fraunhofer Society (FhG). CAR is a major initiative of the Government of India to promote collaborative R&D among Indian Industry, R&D Institutions and Academia for the benefit of the automotive industry.

The first of the collaborative projects “MultiJoin” which aims to enable weight reduction of automotive bodies through hybrid designs involving multi-materials. Four Indian institutions, ARCI Hyderabad, IISc Bengaluru, IIT Madras and ARAI Pune; four Fraunhofer institutions IWU, IWS, IFAM and IZFP; with participation of Indian automotive OEMs will work on evaluation of four different joining techniques to join aluminium, steel and plastic in dissimilar combinations leading to development of design guidelines for incorporation of the newly generated knowledge into automotive body designs
