How non-magnetic stainless steels are driving the electric era of mobility
Electric mobility has arrived in our life. At the same time, the number of sensors inside a vehicle has increased significantly, making electromagnetic compatibility a key design element. A new generation of fully austenitic stainless steels offers complete non-magnetic properties, ideal for EV design, while avoiding the volatile and cost-intensive alloying element nickel. Watch our expert webinar with Stefan Lindner for insights on electrical engineering, an introduction to non-magnetic stainless steels and application examples to inspire design engineers.

How to weld stainless steel for high-performance mobility applications
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.

How stainless steels help us to achieve carbon neutral mobility

There is an inevitable shift in the automotive and transportation industry towards carbon neutral mobility. Vehicle designers therefore need to give great consideration to the materials they use, from manufacture to service and end of life. How can stainless steels contribute to carbon neutrality? Our guest speaker, R&D Manager Emrah Dutkun of Stalatube, shares his insights based on over 10 years of experience in coach chassis systems at a major bus OEM. Additionally, Outokumpu specialists discuss the actions we are taking to ensure our material meets the requirements of future mobility.

How to select materials for the next-generation lightweight bus

The vital demands for passenger safety, comfort and alternative powertrain technologies tend to add weight to a bus. This is a challenge, as reducing weight is precisely the key to energy efficiency. How can you optimize the weight of a bus with the right materials and choices in frame design? In our webinar, Prof. Dr.-Ing. Klemens Rother presents some exciting results from a joined project with the aim to minimize structural weight while keeping material and manufacturing costs at a minimum.
