Issues that matter for the automotive supply chain will be front and center at the inaugural Advanced Design & Manufacturing (ADM) Cleveland trade show and conference. The event comes to the Huntington Convention Center of Cleveland on March 29 and 30.
|Automation equipment will be among the technologies featured on the ADM Cleveland show floor.|
ADM Cleveland will feature a two-day conference track devoted to lightweighting and drivetrain-efficiency strategies targeted to suppliers in all tiers as well as automotive OEMs. Experts in their fields will address the status of the corporate average fuel economy (CAFE) mandate, the use of high-performance plastics and composites to achieve fuel-efficiency goals and a peek inside BMW’s next-gen lightweighting plant. Other conference tracks will focus on medical manufacturing and the smart factory.
On the show floor, suppliers of automation equipment, CAD/CAM systems, injection molding and contract manufacturing services, rapid prototyping technologies and much more will exhibit their newest offerings that will help companies bring projects to market faster and cheaper.
ADM Cleveland, which is billed as northeast Ohio’s only comprehensive design and manufacturing event, features five zones—Design and Manufacturing, Automation Technology Expo (ATX), Medical Design & Manufacturing (MD&M), PLASTEC and Pack—covering the full range of products and services routinely sourced by OEMs.
