While aluminum roll forming has been around for a long time, it has been used only for simple, open shapes. However, in this free, 60-minute webinar, Don Whitacre of Novelis and Shape’s Brian Oxley explain how new advances in aluminum sheet metal and joining technologies have opened the door to creating complex roll-formed sections that offer high performance at a lower cost.

Key topics and takeaways:

  • Discover how new alloys and joining techniques have opened the door for complex, high-strength structural aluminum sections that simplify a structure overall
  • Learn how many features, including holes, forms, and fasteners, can be added directly in the roll-forming operations rather than post-form operations
  • Find out how Novelis and Shape are developing and productionizing the technology to roll form complex shapes
