METAHYBRID Think Tank - innovation-driven core

As "METAHYBRID Think Tank", AUTOMOTEAM is the innovation-driving core in the technological ecosystem. Depending on the project environment and degree of innovation of a product, the product and service components are bundled in a tailor-made manner in all phases from the identification of new applications to application development and production.

The METAHYBRID consortium includes all entities involved in the process of creating a product:

- consultation

- product development

- technology development

- development-related services

- development and production accompanying material analysis

- standardization and standardization

- technology transfer

- production

Experience in product development for over 20 years.



Production of METAHYBRID components

The conventional hybrid components not only combine the strengths, but also the weaknesses of individual materials. This severely restricts their use in modern applications with multifunctionality requirements, e.g.:

- in a hybrid component exposed to wear, the metal component must be made of steel, not aluminum

- if the hybrid component is to demonstrate dielectric properties, the metal component must be completely encased by the plastic

- media-dense bond between metal and plastic is very expensive to impossible

- metales have good heat conduction, but are not dielectrics. Plastics are dielectric, but poorly conductive to heat

- and much more

A METAHYBRID component combines modern and conventional technologies into a unique lightweight material system with new potentials in terms of function, weight, economy, resource consumption and environmental friendliness:

- plastic components

- polymer-metal hybrids

- METAKER® components with new functional properties

- OPENPORE components with new structural properties

- electrical, electronic and mechatronic components

- and much more
