Advanced Lightweight Materials For Automotive Manufacturing & Joining Innovation - Southern States 2019

"A must attend premiere event targeting the needs of advanced automotive manufacturing in the US Southern States" - Including the most-up-to-date developments in manufacturing processes and lightweight structures for EVs and autonomous vehicles"

Our new Southern States agenda for October 2019 directly addresses real practical engineering and advanced technology implementation issues, based on in-depth research with OEMs to meet the needs of senior engineers and technical specialists in body structures, lightweight advanced materials, process engineering, materials joining and forming.

Fully reflecting the strength of automotive manufacturing in the US Southern States of Alabama, Georgia, Kentucky, Mississippi, Missouri, South Carolina, Tennessee and Texas, the Summit will explore new manufacturing technologies and solutions being adopted for the next generation of EVs, Hybrids and ICEVs. 

Highlights include:

Practical Solutions for Faster Processing, Reduced Cost and Increased Quality and Manufacturing Capacity with Advanced Materials
  • Solving real world challenges with joining and multi-materials manufacturing including forming, welding, fastening and adhesives
  • Adoption of modeling and simulation tools for more cost-effective design,  manufacturing and integrated assembly
  • Automated inspection and non-destructive testing (NDT) for high quality joint validation
  • Achieving smarter, faster production and improved profit margins with digitalization of automotive manufacturing and industry 4.0
  • Application optimization of structural adhesives and avoidance of quality control issues
  • Leveraging AI, sensors and IoT for enhanced manufacturing with lightweight materials
An Unrivaled Learning, Networking and Interactive Discussion Opportunity

As part of the world renowned GALM series, you will meet and hear from the industry's leading OEMs, tier suppliers, national labs, centers of advanced manufacturing as well as startup technology innovators.

Attending this unique automotive industry gathering in the southern states will help improve your day-to-day decision making and face these challenges with enhanced knowledge.
