BACK TO THE MULTI-MATERIAL 2019 CONGRESS


The SIA - Société des Ingénieurs de l'Automobile - through its Experts’ Community “Materials and BIW” has organised the second edition of its Multi-Material congress - "What lighweighting for the vehicles of tomorrow? » held on 20 & 21 March 2019 at the ESTACA engineers school near Paris.

Two days of exchanges, meetings, networking and conferences around an exhibition.

The objectives of this congress were multiple:

  • Adress tomorrow's vehicule stakes in a fast moving regulation time and present how automotive industry is managing these evolutions (electric vehicles, autonomous vehicle…)
  • Understand impact of batteries integration on electric vehicles architecture (lightweight, performances, …)
  • Share the importance of lightweight management in CO2 emissions and battery operating life
  • Present innovative product & process solutions to address these expectations in metallic and plastic materials, forming and joining technologies

 

And thus federate the entire automotive industry around the virtuous impacts of lightWeIGHTing FOR the next-gen vehicles!

This event was chaired by Virginie Huguon, PSA Group Senior Expert Car Body .

You were more than 140 to attend this event and we thank you for your participation. You have enjoyed the quality of the presentation and the breaks to exchange with the other attendees and exhibitors.
