LEARNING BENEFITS

To reflect the industry's shift in focus towards production of mass produced lightweight vehicles...

...this years Global Automotive Lightweight Materials Initiative: Detroit 2014 will feature 20+ brand new case studies focusing on technical solutions for incorporating the materials & manufacturing techniques that are having the biggest impact on reducing the cost of mass produced lightweight vehicles.

In 2 days of brand new content from leading OEMs, the agenda this year will focus on:

MASS PRODUCTION FOCUS : To reflect the industry's increased focus on mass production, this year the event's focus will shift to spotlighting the technologies that are being successfully applied at high volume to help develop cost-effective mass produced lightweight vehicles

ALUMINUM & MIXED MATERIAL JOINING : As joining techniques for multi-material lightweight vehicles prove increasingly complex at mass produced scale, this year's event will have an expanded focus on the joining techniques that are having the most success in reducing cost and weight for both aluminum and mixed material lightweight vehicles, including:

  • Resistance Spot Welding
  • Laser Welding
  • Adhesives
  • Self-Piercing Rivets

MATERIAL SELECTION & OPTIMIZATION AT SCALE : All of this year's presentations on material selection and optimization will be focused on how the latest material advances can be translated into a mass produced context.  Leading OEMs and raw material suppliers will provide a material-by-material breakdown of which materials are proving the optimal solution for which automotive applications, focusing on:

  • Aluminum
  • Carbon Fiber & Other Emerging Composites
  • High Strength Steel
  • Magnesium
  • Mixed Material Solutions

VEHICLE REPAIR & CRASH PERFORMANCE : With mass produced lightweight vehicles set to hit the road, this year's agenda will expand its focus to include solutions to the challenges of vehicle repair and crash performance that will emerge as customers start using the vehicles out in the field. Drawing on practical experience from the latest wave of mass-produced lightweight vehicles, OEMs will explain the optimal strategies for detecting, diagnosing and repairing damage to lightweight vehicle at minimum expenditure to reduce insurance costs for customers

Additionally, the series will continue to deliver everything the industry has come to expect from the leading technical forum on automotive lightweight materials including:

OEM LED: With an OEM-led agenda and more OEM speakers than any other lightweighting forum, the GALM series is globally renowned for being the key lightweighting conference for automotive manufacturers

OVER 1000 ATTENDEES: Since launch, the GALM series has doubled in size hosting over 1000 automotive professional attendees so far from over 50 of the world's leading OEMs and Tier 1 suppliers in automotive lightweighting

PRACTICAL SOLUTIONS: Every session on the agenda for this conference has been designed not simply to assess the challenges and problems, but primarily to deliver practical, applicable takeaway solutions based on successful and not so successful case studies from pioneering OEMs who are at the front line ofautomotive lightweighting

MATERIAL SUPPLIERS PANEL: With the reliability and availability of material supply being a critical driver in lighweighting roll-out, we will be hosting a dedicated material suppliers section including a panel addressing global availability and revealing supplier plans for supporting the increased demand of automotive lightweight materials

EXTENDED PANEL DISCUSSIONS: With idea generation, technical debate andstrategic discussion being key to scaling up the manufacture of lightweight vehicles, there will be extended discussions and Q&A sessions throughout, in addition to the 20 case study presentations.

NETWORKING: Enjoy 8 hours of exclusive networking opportunities between the presentations and discussions, including a networking drinks reception at the end of day one; the perfect setting to discuss ideas and progress with colleagues, peers, new acquaintances and potentially, new partners
