FAW-Volkswagen Automotive Co. Ltd

Asia's Most Practical Lightweighting Congress

The Ford F150, the Mercedes-Benz C-Class, the BMW i3 and i8 Series - every year, the global automotive industry is pioneering new lightweight vehicles that were previously commercially unthinkable due to material and manufacturing technology cost restraints. Using ground breaking, multi-material joining and forming technology, commercially focused implementation strategies and cost effective high strength steel, aluminium, magnesium and composite supply channels, certain OEMs from the US, Europe and Asia are rapidly driving the industry forward into a fuel efficient, reduced-CO2 future.

Certain OEMs are moving mountains in regards to vehicle lightweighting. GALM Asia has been designed with one mission - to make sure these practical lessons are shared, transferred and applied across the industry to make sure every OEM in Asia can deliver low cost, CO2 emission-compliant vehicles on a global scale.

ASIA'S MOST PRACTICAL, APPLICATIONS-FOCUSED LIGHTWEIGHT CONFERENCE

The 2nd Annual Global Automotive Lightweight Vehicle Congress, Shanghai, has been designed specifically:

  • To help Asian OEMs practically determine which materials are functionally useable in lightweight fuel efficient vehicles
  • To help Asian OEMs practically determine the cost impact of applying new materials in the vehicle
  • To help Asian OEMs practically determine which new manufacturing techniques, processes, machinery and software are worth investing in
TO ENSURE EVERY PRESENTATION DELIVERS PRACTICAL SOLUTIONS, THE AGENDA HAS BEEN BROKEN DOWN INTO THE FOLLOWING KEY AREAS:
  • WHICH MATERIAL : Determining which materials can be used where in the vehicle based on durability, safety and collision standards and  weight reduction
    Aluminium                           High Strength Steel
    Composites                         Magnesium Alloys
  • MATERIAL COST & AVAILABILITY: Determining which materials are useable in global scale vehicle design based on cost and availability in Asian countries
  • WHICH JOINING TECHNIQUE FOR WHICH MATERIAL: Identifying the process costs and applicability of the latest joining innovations that have been proven to enable the cost effective application of each material in the production line: dissimilar materials focus.
    Adhesive Bounding             Friction Stir Welding
    Resistance Spot Welding    Self Piercing Rivets
  • IMPLEMENTATION INTO THE FACILITY : Examining the joining methods and machinery needed for each material and how to integrate new technology into existing manufacturing facilities

WHAT IS UNIQUE ABOUT GALM ASIA 2015?

An Agenda Created In Conjunction With Lighweighting Experts From OEMs:

  • PRACTICAL & APPLICATIONS FOCUSED: This is Asia's only forum dedicated entirely to delivering practical demonstrations of how lightweight materials can be applied in global automotive manufacturing using a unique per material, per application analysis. This is not an academic summit.
  • COST FOCUSED: Every topic in the agenda will be analysed within the all-important framework of costs, to ensure learning points can be practically and viably implemented back at the office and in the plant
  • OEM LED & OEM ATTENDED: This congress historically attracts a higher percentage of local and international OEM speakers than any other lightweighting event in China
  • GLOBAL: To provide maximum learning benefits, the most advanced case studies have been drawn from all over the world including the US and Germany
  • BRAND NEW & EXCLUSIVE CASE STUDIES: This conference is not an amalgamation of information already available online. Presenters at the event will be delivering the very latest case studies to demonstrate only the most up to date advances in lightweigting
  • UN-BIASED MATERIALS COMPARISON: GALMA and it's sister events in Detroit and London are renowned for providing an un-biased, neutral platform upon which OEMs can compare the costs and benefits of composites, aluminium and ultra high strength steel
  • MASS PRODUCTION FOCUS: The GALM series always places key focus on highlighting the technologies that are being successfully applied at high volume
  • ON SITE DEMONSTRATIONS: In 2015 GALM Asia will be showcasing body-in-white and complete lightweight vehicles to give participants a first hand view of the latest innovations being developed
  • EXCLUSIVE NETWORKING: Over 9 hours of exclusive networking with over 200 OEMs, tier 1's, material suppliers and lightweighting experts
