Lightweighting is moving to a new stage, and while much has been accomplished, the task is getting more difficult. OEMs and suppliers seek to continue the momentum, going deeper into vehicles, components and processes to find the next level of weight savings. All the while, the industry must balance safety and consumer demands. Only Lightweighting World Expo 2019 delivers high-level problem solving for today’s lightweighting applications.

The 2nd annual Expo features a great opportunity to learn how to position lightweighting technology against other vehicle options, and great networking with speakers and attendees in the exhibition hall. In the area of non-ferrous castings, the speakers include Keynote Ms. April Bagley of FCA / Jeep Wrangler, Adam Smith of AC Floby AB on aluminum metal matrix composite brake discs, Cory Ryner of Busche Performance Group on lightweight suspensions, and from GF Linamar on cast interior structures. A key enabler to the introduction of castings on vehicle body structures are the joining technologies, and you will hear about the advancements in laser welding aluminum to steel from Ms. Kristin Tebo of Coherent, and in structural adhesives from Dr. Leslie Wolschleger of Sika.

Don’t miss the best connected industry-insider, John McElroy of Autoline TV, and the topic that drives most lightweighting, the fuel economy regulations by Michael Hartrick of Automotive Alliance.

Lightweighting World magazine, the promoter of this event, states, “The Lightweighting World Expo strikes a good balance between speakers and exhibition, and we provide insight to the total vehicle. Our goal is to build a high-value venue where attendees learn, network and promote their capabilities in vehicle lightweighting.”
