The OEM-led Advanced Lightweight Materials & Manufacturing Innovation Congress (GALM USA 2021) returns as a virtual event on 24-26 August, 2021.
The event brings together top international automotive manufacturers and suppliers, tackling key questions of designing lightweight structures and selecting the optimal combination of high-strength steel, aluminium and reinforced plastics to help OEMs create the next generation of lightweight vehicles meeting new regulatory standards on safety, emissions and performance:
DAY 1 – MATERIAL SELECTION PROCESS FOR BIW & SPECIFIC STRUCTURAL COMPONENTS
- Lightweight Multi-Material Selection For Automotive Body Structures & Components Taking Into Account Cost, Sustainability, Recyclability & Manufacturability
DAY 2 – JOINING METHODOLOGY SELECTION
- Design & Testing For Joining – Choosing The Optimal Welding, Adhesive Or Stamping Process For Key Materials & Joints Considering Diverse Factors & Properties
DAY 3 – IMPROVING THE MANUFACTURABILITY OF LIGHTWEIGHT MATERIALS
- Adapting & Improving Manufacturing Process To Produce Materials & Parts Cheaper & Faster, Including Managing Risk When Implementing New Production Methods
GALM USA 2021 will be attended by VPs, directors, senior managers and engineers from leading global OEMs from departments including material engineering, CAE and BIW design, manufacturing and joining, new energy and structural innovation.
Confirmed participants so far are Honda, General Motors, Nuola Auto, Ford, Tesla, Mazda Toyota Manufacturing, Renault, Stellantis, Ford Otosan, Rivian and Nikola Motor Company, who will present advanced design architectures for aluminium, high-strength steel and composites, including the latest tooling, processing & joining techniques to ensure the next generation of vehicles meet tough international standard on safety, emissions and sustainability.
