Abstract (technical / expert description):

The objective is the integration of piezoceramic modules into metallic components by die casting. The main challenge is the control of the thermo-mechanical loads during mould filling and cooling. A new technology for a robust integration process suitable for mass production is explored. The experimental approach is always supported by the numerical simulation of the integration process.
