High Volume Lightweight Materials Design & Engineering Summit 2017: Cost Effective Multi Material Design & Manufacturing
2018 CONFERENCE REGISTRATION WILL OPEN SOON!
GALM EUROPE 2017 PRESENTED A BRAND NEW AGENDA SPANNING 30+ OEM LED PRESENTATIONS INTRODUCING NEW MATERIALS, MULTI MATERIAL DESIGNS AND ADVANCED JOINING METHODS
To be able to compete effectively on the global automotive arena the European OEMs are in need of the mature cost effective multi material solutions that will allow them to roll out more lightweight cars out of their assembly lines, adopting new designs and manufacturing practices to reflect changing consumer demands and global emission standards.
To help OEMs deliver the next generation of lightweight vehicles, the 6th GALM Conference Europe returned on April 25-26-27th 2017 with its legacy of bringing the latest OEM-led case studies and innovative solutions from the material and technology providers to the critical audience of the automotive experts.
KEY TOPICS FOR GALM EUROPE 2017:
MATERIAL SELECTION STRATEGIES & MULTI MATERIAL ARCHITECTURES: Review practical OEM case studies to understand material selection and implementation philosophies that allowed OEMs to achieve considerable weight and costs savings
LIGHTWEIGHTING OPPORTUNITIES OF STRUCTURAL PARTS, COMPONENTS, ENGINE AND POWERTRAIN: Explore new materials, weight reduction opportunities and design methodologies driven by the changing vehicle manufacturing landscape
INNOVATIVE JOINING TECHNOLOGIES: Review new joining methods for metals to composites, metals to metals and plastics to metals to evaluate their high volume feasibility and potential cost savings
USE OF COMPOSITES, THERMOPLASTICS, GLASS FIBER AND OTHER NEW MATERIALS FOR WEIGHT REDUCTION: Learn about the manufacturing developments of new material processes to explore areas for their applications in new vehicle models
LIGHTWEIGHTING FOR ELECTRIC VEHICLE RANGE: Explore opportunities for lightweighting across new electric vehicle range
MATERIAL PRODUCTION METHODS: Review developments in material production methods, including injection molding, RTM, high pressure die casting, and others to understand how they drive cost reduction across multi material designs
WHY THIS EVENT IS UNIQUE:
What Makes GALM The Industry Leading Event?
THE LARGEST AUTOMOTIVE OEM-LED LIGHTWEIGHT MATERIALS CONGRESS IS RETURNING FOR ITS SIXTH CONSECUTIVE YEAR
After continuous global growth and expansion the Global Automotive Lightweight Materials Europe 2017 conference is returning with 3 full days focusing on the thorough investigation of material selection strategies, multi material architectures, use of composites, thermoplastics, glass fiber and other materials, component weight reduction, innovative joining methods and many more.
What's new for GALM Europe 2017:
NEW DESIGN VALIDATION FOCUSED:
This conference will not only address the issues related to the multi material design development, but also discuss, based on the real life case studies, how the design teams were able to validate and get the "buy in" from the other teams in their multi material architectures
ADDRESSES THE INTRODUCTION OF NEW PROCESSES INTO THE EXISTING FACILITIES:
All participants will benefit from understanding the level of investment required for new materials and technologies and how to adapt the existing infrastructure to accommodate them without having to build new factories
MULTI MATERIAL FOCUSED:
With the automotive focus on utilizing different materials to achieve optimal cost & performance results, the agenda of GALM Europe 2017 will address the issues specific to designing with multiple materials and grades in mind
CLOSING THE GAP WITHIN THE SUPPLY CHAIN:
The conference will enable the dialogues between OEMs and different industry Tiers to find a solution on closing the supply chain gaps for new lightweight materials and technologies across the globe
NEW MODEL FOCUSED:
Based on the detailed consultation with OEMs for OEMs, the agenda content is purely industry driven with the program being designed to uncover opportunities with optimizing lightweighitng for electric, hybrid and conventional vehicles, addressing and eliminating at the core issues related to new designs
