Welcome to Automotive Lightweighting and Manufacturing 2014
Automotive Lightweighting & Manufacturing 2014 brings a dynamic, refreshing and innovative platform for debate and collaboration on next-generation lightweight solutions.
The industry today is being required by both government and consumers to adopt increasingly lightweight structures, components and powertrain in vehicles. Focusing on collaborative research and development, Automotive Lightweighting & Manufacturing 2014 offers a forum to debate and discuss the next-generation of lightweighting and manufacturing solutions and the opportunities presented by new lightweight materials, combining simulation tools, forming technologies, joining techniques and associated manufacturing processes for body structures, components and powertrain.
But with steel-intensive vehicles currently dominating the global market, much work is still needed to cost-effectively transfer materials such as aluminium, advanced ultra-high strength steels, magnesium and composites to OEMs and their suppliers. And as these materials are adopted, business opportunities are being realised by those in a position to understand the new designs and manufacturing technologies required to implement them most efficiently.
