A comprehensive and dedicated guide to automotive production lines,The Automotive Body Manufacturing Systems and Processesaddresses automotive body processes from the stamping operationsthrough the final assembly activities. To begin, it discussescurrent metal forming practices, including stamping engineering,die development, and dimensional validation, and new innovations inmetal forming, such as folding based forming, super-plastic, andhydro forming technologies. The first section also explains detailsof automotive spot welding (welding lobes), arc welding, andadhesive bonding, in addition to flexible fixturing systems andwelding robotic cells. Guiding readers through each stage in theprocess of automotive painting, including the calculations neededto compute the number of applicators and paint consumption based onvehicle dimensions and demand, along with the final assembly andautomotive mechanical fastening strategies, the book's systematiccoverage is unique.

The second module of the book focuses on the layout strategiesof the automotive production line. A discussion of automotiveaggregate planning and master production scheduling ensures thatthe reader is familiar with operational aspects. The book alsoreviews the energy emissions and expenditures of automotiveproduction processes and proposes new technical solutions to reduceenvironmental impact.
