THE LARGEST OEM-LED LIGHTWEIGHT MATERIALS CONGRESS IS RETURNING TO DETROIT IN 2017
One of the key stumbling blocks behind lightweight materials' wide scale adoption remains to be trivial - it is their high costs. To help the industry overcome this issue, the 6th Global Automotive Lightweight Materials conference, US edition will be returning to Detroit to enable current generation of automotive experts to cost effectively drive their lightweighting efforts forward.
The brand new agenda will examine the latest advancements in new grades and types of materials, scrutinize the latest processing and manufacturing technologies through practical case studies and question the financial and technical feasibility of adopting new materials in high volume automotive manufacturing in the US.
Each presentation ultimately will focus on driving down costs and production times to ease the adoption of lightweight materials into mass-produced vehicle architectures.
