What's New For GALM 2015?

• A renewed focus on multi-materials will enable OEMs to identify the optimal mix of high strength steel, aluminium and composites for each component with regards to material supply, costs, cycle time and manufacturability

• Additional breakout streams will enable the delivery of unprecedented detail of job-specific insights across closures, architecture strategy, adhesives and non-destructive testing.

• Brand new speakers to the series will deliver fresh success stories from OEMs such as Mercedes-Benz, Renault, Chrysler, Jaguar Land Rover and Toyota

• The return of the successful body-in-white exhibition will include the Mercedes-Benz C-Class, Jaguar F-Type and Ford GT alongside a keynote study on the architectural design and material selection process

Agenda Highlights

• Material Selection Process And Design Across The BIW To Significantly Reduce Weight Of A Mass Reduced Vehicle - Ford

• Controlling Cost, Crash Performance And Aesthetics To Replace Steel Components With Significantly Lighter Composites - PSA Peugeot Citroen

• Innovative Forming And Joining Techniques For Mass Manufacturing Of Next-Generation Lightweight Structures - Renault

• Lifecycle Sustainability Analysis From Raw Materials To End Of Life Recycling To Mitigate Environmental Impacts And Comply With Global Regulations - Audi AG
