Magazine Description

In this issue

The automotive industry the world over is actively engaged in weight therapy. Driven by ever-more-stringent emission, fuel efficiency and safety norms, vehicle manufacturers and their component suppliers are exploring and using new materials, processes and technologies to cut the kilos and shave the grams, all in the quest of lighter but stronger vehicles that are both greener as well as able to s-t-r-e-t-c-h costly fossil fuel. We've also got a huge exclusive on engineering major Larsen & Toubro's automotive prowess. Autocar Professional's annual Lightweighting Special, all of 88 pages, is heavy with a plethora of news stories, exclusive interviews and in-depth features on the latest developments in the industry. We reveal the latest from the Talegaon-based Sintercom India, DSM Engineering Plastics, Freudenberg Sealing Technologies, Volkswagen's MEB electric platform, Siemens PLM Software's NX design tool, Gordon Murray Design's iStream Superlight technology, and lots more. The FISITA World Automotive Congress 2018, the hallowed ground for automotive engineers, opens at the Chennai Trade Centre on October 2. Held in India for the first time, the biennial expo, which will see plenty of presentations from industry stalwarts, also has an expo. Dan Nicholson, president of FISITA and VP - Global Propulsion Systems, General Motors, writes on how engineers are driving a safer and cleaner future in motoring. FISITA 2018 is also where ZF will be showcasing its lightweight modular Semi-Trailing Arm Rear Suspension or mSTARS. Writing for Autocar Professional, Alexander Hagele, vice-president, Car Chassis Technology Development Business Units, ZF Friedrichshafen AG, details the revolutionary axle concept. This 88-page issue is a must-read, from cover to cover.
