Following its resounding success for 5 years running, the next edition of the Global Automotive Lightweight Materials will be returning back to Detroit in August 2016. Bringing along cutting edge innovative solutions to the judging panel of automotive experts, the next edition will accommodate even more practical case studies, interactive panel discussions and extended networking opportunities to facilitate introduction of the next generation of lightweight vehicles to the forecourt.
KEY FOCUS OF THE GALM SERIES: COMPOSITES, JOINING, MULTI-MATERIAL DESIGN, CORROSION AND RECYCLING INNOVATION
Increasing pressure from consumers and stronger carbon emission regulations are driving every large-scale OEM in the US to explore the latest materials and manufacturing advances to reduce vehicle weight. The focus now is on minimizing the costs that will help scale up the adoption of lightweight materials.
To deliver the next generation of lightweight vehicles OEMs are critically racing to reduce the costs and cycle times of carbon-fiber composites, aluminium and magnesium. From design modeling and corrosion mitigation to recycling, technology is advancing at break-neck speed and each year OEMs must remain ahead of the learning curve to remain competitive on the forecourt.
