Car Body Painting 2018

35th Workshop

Ecology vs. Costs: Between technical feasibility and economic viability

"Factory Without People", "Artificial Intelligence", "Renewable Resources"... Is this the future of the automotive paint shop? Not everything that is technically possible makes economic sense. For example, the trend towards e-mobility is raising questions about new established principles of lightweight construction - and the materials used. What does this mean for the paint shop of the future? The key tasks are to study the available real-world data, estimate the scope and direction of future trends and, finally, assess the excpected costs. In addition, it is important to remember that requirements to the conversion and expansion of existing paint shops are different from those for greenfield projects.

Where does automotive painting stand here? What experiences have we already gained, which hurdles do we still have to overcome? And which systems and process materials will support OEMs on their journey to creating a future-proof paint shop?

These and other questions will be discussed by experts from well-known OEMs and suppliers at Car Body Painting 2018 in Bad Nauheim.

Join the discussion on the current status of and future challenges in car body painting.
