5th Lightweight Vehicles Manufacturing Summit 2018
2018 CONFERENCE REGISTRATION IS NOW OPEN!
Focused specifically on the latest advancements in manufacturing techniques, joining methods and forming processes for lightweight vehicles, the Lightweight Vehicles Manufacturing Conference continues to deliver unique insights into the strategic and practical considerations to drive safety, quality and cost effectiveness across high volume lightweight automotive production.
The program for the 5th Lightweight Vehicles Manufacturing will be revealed shortly and will deliver industry leading insight into key new areas.
FEATURES FOR 2017 INCLUDED:
TRUCKS AND HEAVY VEHICLES:
For the first time last year we introduce specific focus on Lightweighting for Medium & Heavy Duty trucks alongside passenger vehicles, in light of EPA regulatory change.
LATEST ALUMINUM DEVELOPMENTS:
The program covered the whole spectrum of aluminum related technology developments, including aluminum castings, sheets & extrusions, joining with aluminum, corrosion mitigation, recycling, and more
MANUFACTURING TECHNOLOGIES FOR MULTI-MATERIAL STRUCTURES:
The 4th edition of the conference brought together manufacturing experts to share their expertise and evaluate the pros and cons of each new technology to support practical application in manufacturing context
Showcasing the latest innovations, the 2017 event scrutinized what opportunities lie ahead through advanced processes and technologies for automotive lightweighting, including additive manufacturing, machine learning, plastic & composite technologies
CORROSION MITIGATION CHALLENGES:
To address challenges associated with corrosion mitigation for multi material combination, the program focued on corrosion testing, prevention methods for mixed materials and management of corrosion & distortion issues
The 2017 agenda has addressed formability of new material grades and advanced forming techniques
Technical Fellow, General Motors
Good mix of talks and speakers and there was more technical content than I expected. This was a pleasant surprise. Food, resources and media were excellent
Advanced Materials Research, Honda R&D Americas
Concept directly in line with challenges I face everyday. Great to hear other OEMs/Tiers speaking about these issues
Engineer - Roof Systems, Bentley Motors
I was attracted by increasing my knowledge of material choice as well as discussing in depth issues such as cost and recyclability. Good scope of presenters.
Technical Lead - Materials for Advanced Technology & Research (AT&R), Volvo Group Trucks Technology
TIER1 partners must attend this event to understand what their customers are striving for as well as gain valuable network connections.
SPECIFICALLY DESIGNED FOR MANUFACTURING JOB FUNCTIONS WITH A COMPLETELY REVAMPED AGENDA IN ITS 4TH YEAR
The conference will bring along the latest case studies to shed light and scrutinize the practical application of the latest manufacturing technologies for joining, forming and quality assurance applicable to a wide spectrum of materials. Looking at the most suitable manufacturing processes for diverse strength aluminum, steel, magnesium and composites. No similar conference will provide the same depth of knowledge and level of details to aid the cost effective and process efficient adoption of new technologies.
