Global AutomotIve LIghtweIght MaterIals Congress AsIa

In order to meet the electric vehicle targets set out by the Chinese government, it is vital that car manufacturers are able to access the latest information on the development of commercially viable new joining technologies and participate in the evolving discussion around the joining of dissimilar materials to effectively integrate the battery system and meet the specific safety and structural requirements of electric vehicles.

The 3rd Global Lightweight Materials Asia conference returns to Shanghai this year on 31st July- 1st August. Part of the widely renowned GALM series, the 2018 event will feature case studies on successful practical applications of new joining and simulation technologies, including real-world insights and results from OEMs in Asia, Europe and USA.

Uniquely, attendees at GALM Asia will gain visionary solutions and methodologies for reducing the cost of joining mixed materials including aluminium, UHSS, composites and magnesium and more effectively manufacture in high volumes – in order to help the drive towards greater EV production.

With a large Exhibitor Showcase featuring leading solution providers from across the globe, an Evening Networking Drinks Reception, and an expert global speaker panel, this is the most important conference in Asia in 2018 covering all the commercial, practical and technical issues for optimizing lightweight material selection for EV body structure design.

Simultaneous translation in Engish- Mandarin will be provided.

The event will take place on July 31 – August 1, 2018, in Shanghai, China.
