Manufacturing High Performance Parts Quicker, At Lower Cost

With the CAFE standards continuing to drive the automotive industry towards manufacturing technologies that allow maximum weight reduction while maintaining parts performance has long since became the priority for automakers.

The challenge now is to find the manufacturing solutions that are keeping up with the innovative lightweight materials and are able to provide the quality expected at a competitive price.

The trade-off between the cost and quality is unacceptable; hence manufacturing optimization, if not addressed could become a stumbling block preventing the industry from moving forward.

Enabling Maximum Joint Resistivity And Performance

Running across three continents and supported by over 1500 global delegates, 150 exhibitors and combining over 130 hours of OEM-led presentations over the last 11 editions, the GALM series is bringing to Detroit the 3rd Annual Lightweight Vehicle Manufacturing 2016 summit.

Focusing specifically on reducing the costs and shortening production cycles of manufacturing processes with an emphasis on multi material joining, forming and quality assurance for next generation lightweight vehicles, the Lightweight Vehicle Manufacturing 2016: Joining, Forming & Quality Assurance will be taking place in Detroit on February 24-25, 2016.

The summit will allow the leading experts from OEMs, Tier 1 suppliers and technology providers to discuss the most critical areas within manufacturing and quality assurance processes to enable delivery of next-generation lightweight manufacturing technologies to the forecourt.
