Vehicle lightweighting has become a top priority for the automotive industry, and aluminum is the material of choice for many applications.
In this free webinar, Mario Greco of Novelis discusses the ultra-high-strength 7xxx series alloy, which offers a weight reduction potential of up to 40% over existing hot-formed steel solutions.
Key topics and takeaways:
- Discover how ultra-high-strength aluminum is helping engineers design safer, lighter, and better-performing vehicles
- Learn how aluminum is used in safety-critical structural applications in passenger vehicles requiring high in-service strengths, such as A and B pillar reinforcements and side-impact door beams
- Gain insight into the positive impact of aluminum on driving range in electric vehicles and payload potential in commercial vehicles
- Learn about the super-efficient aluminum manufacturing process, which helps stakeholders maximize product value while minimizing environmental impact
