High Volume Multi-Material Supply, Design & Engineering Summit 2016: Bringing Mature Lightweight Solutions To The Forecourt
THIS YEAR GALM EUROPE PRESENTS ITS MOST COMPREHENSIVE AND INNOVATIVE AGENDA SPANNING 30 PRESENTATIONS BRINGING TOGETHER MORE OEMs AND BIWs THAN EVER
The pressure from Governments and the global community to cut down on CO2 emissions has been a cause of significant headache for the global automakers for a while now.
The need to cut vehicle weight is obvious and there are several solutions to consider. With the set of new materials and grades rolling out on a continuous basis, advanced lightweight materials adoption keep gaining momentum, yet the selection and adoption processes become a costly trial and error method at times.
To be able to compete effectively on the global automotive arena the European OEMs are in need of the mature cost effective solutions that will allow them to roll out more lightweight cars out of their assembly lines, adopting the designs and manufacturing practices to reflect changing consumer demands and global emission standards.
To help OEMs deliver the next generation of lightweight vehicles, the 5th GALM Conference Europe is returning on April 26-28th 2016 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.
