About the webinar

Electric vehicles contain components and systems that have strict cleanliness standards and guidelines and laboratories involved in their inspection have to adapt to these. This has led to the need to revise the VDA 19.1 guidelines. With the increasing trend towards e-mobility, the inspection sector is challenged with finding new technical solutions to meet these stricter demands on particle analysis.

Increasing trend towards e-mobility

In this webinar, Dr.-Ing. Markus Rochowicz, from the Fraunhofer Institute for Manufacturing, Engineering, and Automation in Stuttgart, will speak about the history of the VDA 19 guidelines and why there is an increasing focus on technical cleanliness in the automotive manufacturing and supplier industries.
