WINDSOR (WWJ) – The University of Windsor is getting more than $1 million to improve the production of lightweight auto parts.

Along with research partners like Ford Motor Company Amino North America, professors will be looking to better understand electrohydraulic forming — which involves the precision cutting and shaping of sheet metal.

“The problem is when you go to lighter materials, you cannot sacrifice safety. So, we need technologies that can mold lighter materials and maintain the strength and durability of our automotive sectors,” said Canadian technology minister Gary Goodyear.

The funding is part of a $34-million, six-part project designed to advance automotive research across Canada. Goodyear said they’re hoping to improve cars and trucks, while putting more Canadians to work.

“This type of an announcement not only creates local jobs, but it puts Canada in a very competitive position to sell our cars and our technologies to the rest of the world,” said Goodyear.
