4th Lightweight Vehicles Manufacturing Summit 2017
Manufacturing High Performance Vehilces 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 2000 global delegates, 170 exhibitors and combining over 160 hours of OEM-led presentations over the last 14 editions, the GALM series is bringing to Detroit the 4th Annual Lightweight Vehicle Manufacturing 2017 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 2017will be taking place in Detroit on February 22-23, 2017.
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.
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 the 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.
