Aluminium sheet for automotive applications

Automotive Aluminum Plate

Aluminium Alloy sheet is the most used material in automobiles and commercial vehicles as it provides excellent safety and durability coupled with increase in fuel efficiency and reduced emissions (thanks to its lightness). In addition, its demand is accelerating in this field thanks to its strength and environmental benefits: aluminium is 100% recyclable and can be recycled indefinitely without loss of quality. For all these reasons different car parts are being made from this material: wheels, radiators and body parts.

Automotive Aluminum Plate

Automobile body sheet hereinafter referred to as ABS, is coining passenger car body covering parts of high precision aluminium alloy sheet, thickness of 0.8 mm to 1.8 mm, width 2200 mm or less, in the four kinds of high precision aluminum flat rolled products (FRPs) in its highest technical threshold, the other three products for aerospace aluminum alloy plate, PS and CTP plate, aluminum cans body strip. Automotive aluminum plate can be divided into two categories: ABS is a special category; Another kind is gm’s board, refers to all the other plate strip, other than the ABS sheet and plate, its performance is lower than that of the ABS.

Alloys for use in the automotive industry are classified in several categories: cast, extruded and rolled alloys, each meant for different parts and positions in vehicles. Depending on their chemical composition and properties, automotive alloys are designated by series (mostly 6xxxx and 5xxxx). Each series contains numerous variations and subgroups, depending on composition, manufacturing techniques and the tempers (exp. T4, T6) of various alloys.

Aluminum Sheet for Vehicle Bodies

Aluminum Sheet for Vehicle Bodies

As part of the ever-increasing effort to maximize fuel economy, automakers are more than often substituting aluminum for steel to build body panels in order to save weight. Both producers and consumers are finding that aluminum is great to work with in terms of gas mileage, but it can cause other problems to surface. Aluminum is seen as one of the best ways to reduce hundreds of pounds of body weight all at once. Ford has been a leader in embracing the material at a volume level, and they have placed a huge bet on their aluminum crash diet.
Haomei aluminium has successfully developed products for auto bodies, including aluminum alloy 6082, a thickness range of 0.3-600mm, width range of 50-2600mm.

Thick aluminum plate for automobile wheels

The thick aluminum plate for automobile wheels is mainly 6061 aluminum alloy. 6061 aluminum alloy is a heavyweight product developed by Haomei Aluminum. We have very mature technology. Production processing thickness range: 0.30-600 Width range: 150-2600

Before we discuss all of the things that could be affecting your PC’s performance, let’s talk a little about what symptoms

Advantages of Haomei Aluminum automotive aluminum plate:

Strong and Safe 01

Aluminum alloy reduces the weight of the car without reducing the capacity of the car, and the center of gravity of the body is reduced, making the car more stable and comfortable. Due to the good energy absorption of aluminum, it has obvious advantages in collision safety.

Recyclable & More Energy Efficient 02

In the process of cyclic utilization of aluminum, the loss of aluminum is only about 5%. Its recycling performance is higher than that of any common metal.

Aluminum alloy for car body can reduce the weight of the vehicle by 10%. For every 100 kg of vehicle weight loss, fuel consumption per 100 km can be reduced by 0.4 liters, carbon dioxide emissions can be reduced by 1 kilogram, and fuel efficiency can be increased by 6%-8%.

Excellent Corrosion Resistance 03

Aluminum has good corrosion resistance, therefore the aluminum alloy body will be better than the traditional steel body in durability.
