Global Automotive Lightweight Materials Detroit 2017

WELCOME TO THE 6th GLOBAL AUTOMOTIVE LIGHTWEIGHT MATERIALS SUMMIT

The North American automotive industry is undergoing considerable changes at present. The review of CAFE standards, autonomous vehicle technologies development, push on powertain lightweighting and considerable uptake in electric vehicles are among the key factors that play an important role in the way the automotive industry will approach its lightweighting strategies going forward.

Apart from the major trends that get the industry leads revising their medium and long term strategies, the sector is largely influenced by technical developments on the design, engineering and manufacturing levels directly related to lightweight materials.

The 3rd generation steels, magnesium, additive manufacturing, increasing use of plastics & composites and new developments in multi-material joining methods offer a lot of potential for those that are able to adopt them early and cost effectively.

KEY TOPICS FOR GALM 2017:

Each of the three days at GALM USA 2017 will have a unique focus to deliver next level of details on new materials and cutting edge technologies for the benefit of automotive OEMs. In addition, the agenda will provide unrivaled networking opportunities with three busy days full of technical presentations, interactive panels and round-tables, networking breakfasts, lunches and refreshment breaks.

➢ GENERATION 3 STEELS, NEW ALUMINUM GRADES AND MAGNESIUM DEVELOPMENTS
➢ NEW OEM LIGHTWEIGHTING STRATEGIES: POWERTRAIN, ADDITIVE MANUFACTURING AND BODY STRUCTURE DESIGN
➢ CAFE REGULATIONS, SUSTAINABILITY TARGETS AND AUTOMOTIVE TRENDS
➢ COMPOSITES PRODUCTION COST REDUCTION
➢ LATEST JOINING TECHNOLOGIES
