Define your welding strategy for car bodies, bus frames or railway vehicles

With most materials, welding affects the microstructure in a negative way. The microstructure and resulting physical properties of stainless steels, however, can offer highly ductile and crash-resistance welds. Our webinar demonstrates to welding experts in the mobility industry how they can define their welding strategy to achieve high-performance welds using stainless steels. Join Outokumpu’s Thomas Hündgen and Stefan Lindner for new insights and practical examples.

Key topics in the webinar:

  • Basic introduction to the weldability of stainless steels
  • Microstructure, physical properties and derived welding strategy for stainless steels
  • Application examples: car body engineering, bus frames, railway vehicles
  • Questions and answers
