David Collins speaking about Supplier & Procurement Requirement Trend Of Automobile Industries For Metal Components


David touched on the following topics:
  • What automotive buyers want (less weight, stronger and rust proof metals, better ability to paint without defects, etc.)
  • Car makers' CO2 emissions (the EU leading with a high standard, the US following closely, and China tightening their standards quickly)
  • Strength is also a must because of more stringent safety standards
  • The opportunity of solving the oxidation issue
  • New materials would need to be able to be used in current car plants, which have a long life
  • The idea of close partnership with suppliers
  • Suppliers as a source of new ideas and significant savings
  • New materials that will compete more and more with steel
  • Comparison with aerospace
  • Close-loop recycling and its huge impact on total cost of ownership
  • Common manufacturing issues in China (process controls, tooling quality, etc.)
