Technical Webinar Series from the Editors of SAE – Lightweighting: Defining the Next Phase

In Conjunction with SAE Much of automotive lightweighting’s low-hanging fruit has been exploited. This SAE Webinar examines what new materials, as well as design and manufacturing innovations, will advance lightweighting to the next phase, where gains are expected to be tougher and potentially more expensive. Aluminum has been the assumed overall “winner” for lightweighting’s future, but fast-moving innovation from the steel and composites sectors is making the materials-choice matrix more complex and opportunity-laden.
