Global Automotive Lightweight Materials Detroit
North America's Flagship OEM Driven Summit and Technology Innovations Showcase On Automotive Lightweight Materials, Structures And Advanced Manufacturing "Where The Industry Meets"
BRAND NEW AGENDA REFLECTING MAJOR AUTOMOTIVE INDUSTRY INVESTMENT INTO A NEW GENERATION OF EVS AND AUTONOMOUS VEHICLES BY ESTABLISHED AND START-UP OEMS
The rapid transition to a new generation of EV, autonomous and ICEV platforms, architectures and lightweight structures is driving new opportunities for advanced technology adoption and engineering innovation - but also creating potentially disruptive challenges for vehicle designers, engineers and their suppliers.
With a brand new agenda, the Summit will provide important insights and understanding through an unrivaled mix of in-depth technical sessions, case study-led presentations and interactive panel discussions on the hottest issues, enabling greater interaction between speakers and delegates than ever before.
GALM 2019 HIGHLIGHTS ON ADVANCED TECHNOLOGY ADOPTION, MANUFACTURABILITY AND ENGINEERING INNOVATION
- Find out how to get the greatest value from in innovations in lightweight materials and combine them effectively for enhanced manufacturability - including Gen 3 and other high strength steels, aluminum 6000 and 7000 series applications, carbon fiber and lower plastic composites;
- Explore and understand how to realize the potential of digitalization and manufacturing 4.0 for integrated design and manufacturing, improved throughput and optimized production system;
- Compare and contrast new approaches to developing EV body structure / body in white and battery integration for durability, crashworthiness and intrusion protection;
- Adopt the latest advances in forming, joining, welding, adhesive bonding, castings, extrusions and testing processes to reduce vehicle mass and minimize costs.
Unrivalled networking and interactive discussion
Meet technical leaders and chief engineers with leading OEMs and EV, autonomous vehicle start-ups - responsible for advanced design, body engineering, simulation and predictive modelling, lightweight high strength metals and composites, manufacturing processes and automation.
