Published on

With new lightweight developments creating challenges in vehicle assembly and driving continual changes to plant infrastructure, manufacturing OEMs are rapidly trying to learn how to cost effectively weld, rivet, form and cast lightweight vehicles on a global platform. Driven by the need to improve fuel economy and reduce carbon emissions, automotive OEMs are reducing vehicle weights by using advanced materials such as high-strength steel, aluminium and even magnesium alloys. The company-critical responsibility of making sure these global strategies are executed efficiently and cost effectively on the factory floor of course, lies with the senior professionals in charge of Manufacturing, Engineering, Body Shop, Assembly and Production Line.

For the first time, the GALM series has now created a congress specially designed for experts who are actively pioneering key technologies, deciding on joining methods and cost effectively implementing welding, bonding and riveting technologies to economically, rapidly and consistently join high strength steel, aluminium and carbon fiber composites.
ENABLING HIGH VOLUME, MULTI-MATERIAL VEHICLE MANUFACTURING

The mission of the Global Lightweight Vehicle Manufacturing Congress 2014 is to tactically support the OEM manufacturing community in the constant changing infrastructure by delivering tried and tested case studies and pioneering research on the cost effectiveness, speed and reliability of the world's leading lightweight joining technologies. Our OEM speaker faculty will address how to choose the right joining methods for each application by showing how welding, bonding and riveting technologies can be cost effectively implemented on high volume lightweight vehicle lines using state of the art applications with high strength steel, aluminum and carbon fiber composites.

TECHNOLOGY SELECTION & IMPLEMENTATION: This is the first automotive conference to focus on the business case for which joining technologies are right for integrating lightweight materials and how to apply them to enable high volume production both regionally and globally. LARGE SCALE FOCUS: This brand new GALM sister event will fully encompass the manufacturing considerations to account for when moving into large scale lightweight manufacturing to provide delegates with intelligence on how to more effectively roll out their own lightweighting manufacturing strategies. This isn’t just about testing and piloting – it’s about tried and tested, commercial global scale production. MANUFACTURING JOB TITLE SPECIFIC: The big difference between this event and the events American Business Conferences has hosted in the past is that it’s focused 100% on manufacturing techniques, the hottest topic in the lighweighting field. While the Global Automotive Lightweight Materials Conference is focused on material selection, product design, supply chain and manufacturing, the Global Lightweight Vehicle Manufacturing Congress 2014 will focus specifically on the overall manufacturing considerations joining technologies for lightweighting implementation. UNPRECEDENTEDLY DETAILED AGENDA ON MANUFACTURING: The agenda will provide highly detailed analysis of welding, riveting and bonding best practice case studies across each lightweight material and mixed material combinations. REPAIRS & JOINT TESTING: The agenda will also address one of the most important topics in manufacturing - the standardization of joint testing and repairs for manufacturing - to identify optimal joint, crack and dent repair techniques and improve process efficiencies. STRATEGIC & TECHNICAL FOCUS: The content in other joining conferences is very technical in regards to joining while we focus on technical joining but also on the strategic implementation of lightweighting in plants. Other conferences show how to implement – we show how to implement technologies but also explain the business case for why each technology was chosen so delegates attain insight into the economics as well as the application of each joining technology. This is a unique agenda design that has never before been done. SENIOR & TECHNICAL APPEAL: We therefore will attract senior manufacturing personnel (Directors, VPs, Head Of) at our conference as well as more technical people, whereas some other joining conferences focus purely on junior technical personnel. Technical Fellow General Motors “Good mix of talks and speakers and there was more technical content than I expected. This was a pleasant surprise. Food, resources and media were excellent” Engineer - Roof Systems Bentley Motors “I was attracted by increasing my knowledge of material choice as well as discussing in depth issues such as cost and recyclability. Good scope of presenters” Senior Material Engineer Bentley Motors “Good all around, very open discussion with various presenters. Broad representation of the industry. Will come next year!” Venue Information The Congress will be held at: Detroit Marriott Troy 200 W. Big Beaver Rd Troy, Michigan 48084 Tel: 1-248-680-9797 OEMs CONTACT US FOR DISCOUNTS
