The most cutting edge, innovative manufacturing technologies and practices for high volume lightweight automotive production are to be revealed at the 3rd Lightweight Vehicle Manufacturing: Joining, Forming & Quality Assurance Conference taking place on 24-25th February 2016 in Detroit, MI.

Firmly securing its place as one of the most anticipated events within the automotive manufacturing community, the GALM US Manufacturing conference will be bringing the latest OEM-led case studies on enabling maximum resistivity and performance for lightweight multi-material joints.

With the ultimate goal of lowering the costs and shortening production cycles, the congress will bring the latest insights of leading OEMs such as GM, Ford and FCA on manufacturing advancements for multi-material vehicle architectures including the use of diverse-strength aluminum, steel,

magnesium and composites.

The agenda has been completely revamped to ensure relevance to the evolving challenges the OEMs are facing today. The 2016 edition will address the following themes: 

MITIGATE CORROSION FOR MIXED MATERIALS: Clarifying Which Corrosion

Mitigation Techniques Are Being Effectively Used By OEMs To Maximize Joints

Durability

ACHIEVE EFFECTIVE MATERIAL CHARACTERIZATION: Evaluating Properties

Of The New Grades Of UHSS, Aluminum And Composites To Determine Their

Influence On The Selection Of Multi-Material Joining And Forming Technologies

KEEP JOINING COSTS TO MINIMUM: Comparing The Cost Vs. Resistivity

Performance For Laser Welding, Resistance Spot Welding And Structure Bonding

For Dissimilar Materials Such As Diverse-Strength Aluminum, Diverse-Strength

Steel, Magnesium And Carbon Fiber Composites

SHORTEN PRODUCTION CYCLES: Learn How OEMs Are Implementing The Very

Latest Joining And Forming Methods To Drastically Reduce Production Cycles

MANAGE COMPOSITES PAINTABILITY: Optimizing Composites Properties Through The Processing And Forming To Maximize Parts Paintability

EVALUATING REPAIRABILITY STRATEGIES: Assessing Joints And Material Reparability To Better Understand Vehicle Parts Lifecycle And Repair Costs

Mark February 24-25, 2016 on your calendar. The full speaker line-up featuring

all the OEMs and technology experts will be announced very soon.
