CONFIRMED SO FAR....

AT THE 2015 USA SHOWCASE: TESLA MODEL S

Tesla Model S

This lightweight aluminium body reinforced with high strength, boron steel elements has been designed with electric powertrain in mind. Regularly in the spotlight for innovation, see how Tesla have brought together optimal material selection and joining methods to create this world-leading BIW

FORD F-150

Ford F-150

Having stormed its way through the US automotive market, the F-150 continues to sell as quickly as they are made. The new aluminum body has shaved 700 pounds off its former steel ancestor. Following the display of the full vehicle  in 2014, the core BIW will now be revealed for 2015

2014 RANGE ROVER SPORT

Range Rover Sport

The all-aluminium body of the 2014 Range Rover Sport outsold any other Jaguar or Land Rover model when it hit the forecourts. 800 pounds lighter, this BIW is a pinnacle of engineering

PLUS: LOTUS EVORA FULL VEHICLE

Lotus Evora

We are also excited to announce the inclusion of a Lotus Evora in our exhibition showcase. Full details to be announced shortly.

LEARNING BENEFITS

THE LARGEST OEM-LED LIGHTWEIGHT MATERIALS CONGRESS IS RETURNING TO DETROIT FOR ITS 11th EDITION

After continuous global growth and expansion, the Global Automotive Lightweight Materials conference is returning to its origins in Detroit to focus on advanced joining, forming and design of composites and lightweight metals to inform strategy, design, manufacturing and vehicle safety professionals.

Each presentation will focus on ultimately driving down costs and production times to ease the adoption of lightweight materials into mass-produced vehicle architectures.

WHAT'S UNIQUE ABOUT THE 2015 CONGRESS?

COST REDUCTION DRIVEN

With the demand for cost competitiveness ever more prominent, uncovering methods that could substantially reduce costs in material sourcing, design, manufacturing and recycling is a focus throughout the congress

COMPOSITES IN UNPRECEDENTED DETAIL

Scrutinizing joining, forming & design to evaluate the financial feasibility of introducing composites into high volume vehicles

EXCLUSIVE BIW EXHIBITION

Exploring the BIWs from top industry leaders to practically evaluate the latest light weighting practices they have adopted in their vehicles

PRACTICAL ADOPTION FOCUS

Each new process, technology and advanced material is analyzed in light of what can be affordably adopted in high volumes in the near future

LIGHTWEIGHTING BEYOND BIW EXPLORED

Probing lightweight solutions across interior and closures to shave further weight from the vehicle
