Sharing The Very Latest Weight Reduction Success Stories From OEMs, Tier 1's And Material Suppliers

For many new, lightweight materials the costs of supply, forming components, joining and manufacturing are still not viable for high volume assembly lines, keeping the vehicles of the future in the design department instead of on the forecourt. OEMs must learn how to design commercially optimised multi-material vehicle architectures that factor in material availability, manufacturing limitations, lifecycle environmental impacts, crash safety and repairability.

The 4th annual Global Automotive Lightweight Materials Congress 2015 is returning to London, 29th-30th April, to deliver 20+ case studies from OEMs, Tier 1 component providers and material suppliers. From design strategies for composites, aluminium and steel to tried and tested techniques for multi-material joining and recycling, industry leaders will assess how to cost-effectively reduce the weight of automotive body, chassis and interiors for global markets.

Case Studies Will Be Provided On The Following Key Topics: MULTI-MATERIAL DESIGN
