The objective of the proposed activity is to evaluate the combination of Laser Beam Welding with Creep Forming processes in order to reduce the manufacturing steps and related costs/time of launchers structural elements and tanks up to 50% while guaranteeing (thanks to the use of newly developed Aluminum Magnesium Scandium alloys) significantly lower weight high strength combined with exceptionally good notch ductility and enhanced corrosion resistance.
