Global Automotive Lightweight Materials Asia 2014

Automotive OEMs across the world, particularly in Asia, are rapidly moving towards an era of cost-effective reduced weight vehicles. But limited raw materials and Tier 1 supplier capability, combined with the technical challenges of forming and joining lightweight materials at a low cost, mean there is still a great deal of work to be done before OEMs in China, Japan, South Korea and India can fully apply lightweighting objectives across vehicle manufacturing.

With increasingly stringent CO2 emissions targets in Asia, Europe and USA, OEMs around the world are rapidly developing strategies to drive the development of low cost, high volume lightweight solutions and improve manufacturing capabilities to reduce material cost, ensure quality supply and create more fuel efficient vehicles on a global platform.

It is the mission of the Global Automotive Lightweight Materials Asia 2014 to drive down the cost of attaining, designing and applying lightweight materials including high strength steel, aluminium, magnesium and composites, to enable the mass production of lightweight, fuel efficient vehicles in Asia. 

Join us at this exclusive event as we bring together OEMs, Material Suppliers and Tier 1s to assess current capabilities and future strategies being developed to drive the development of low cost, high volume lightweight vehicles on a global platform.

Day one will highlight strategies, assess regional supply capabilities and examine the costs, availability and performance of lightweight materials in Asia. Material selection strategies will be examined followed by individual sessions on driving down costs and improving availability of high strength steel, aluminium, magnesium and composites to enable cost effective lightweighting for the mass market.

Day two will deliver practical solutions for forming and joining high strength steel, aluminium, magnesium and composite materials on a global platform. Presenters will deliver case study based analysis on hot stamping, joining steel to aluminium, welding high strength steels and joining steels to composites. The day will end by looking at CAE stimulation advancement and a case study on lightweighting in the electric vehicle.


Global Automotive Lightweight Materials Asia 2014 will provide...

...a commercial forum for identifying the most cost-feasible business plans, global supply strategies and forming and joining techniques to drive the widespread integration of advanced lightweight materials within Asian OEMs.

Taking a perspective across both body structures and vehicle systems this is a key opportunity to gain insights into Vehicle OEMs, Material Suppliers & R&D Institutions' approaches for establishing a cost-competitive light-weighting solution for the mass market.

Forming the very latest in our Global Automotive Lightweight Materials Series held annually in London and Detroit, GALM Asia will bring together vehicle OEMs, Material Suppliers and Tier 1's to share best practice case study based strategies and innovative technologies for cost effective integration and application of advanced lightweight materials, at scale.
