Aluminum is seen as the best way to reduce hundreds of pounds of body weight all at once. Car makers are placing a huge bet on its aluminum crash diet, using the alloy for all of the body panels and the bed of its redesigned pickup. It claims that aluminum can improve the vehicle’s fuel economy by as much as 29 percent.
That is to said, aluminum is a fickle metal to bend on the assembly line, and its quirky metallurgy could mean that body shops will have a tough time replacing bashed-in sheet metal. It’s more expensive than steel in a raw state, in its conversion to a usable sheet metal, and in its assembly—resulting in a 60 to 80 percent cost premium, according to a Massachusetts Institute of Technology study. A recent calculation by Forbes estimated the added cost at 0 per car.
Facts about HAOMEI:
In HaoMei extrusion workshop, there are 26 extrusion presses of international advanced level, of which one set of 4000 tons, one set of 3600 tons, two sets of 2500 tons, five sets of 1800 tons, nine sets of 1250 tons and eight sets of 600 tons. The annual capacity of aluminium profiles is 150,000 tons
HaoMei can produce different series of alloys in architectural, industrial and automotive industry.
We handled more than 100 series and 8000 items. In addition to the 6000 series, we also developed 2000, 3000, 5000, 7000, etc.
With better mechanical properties, these series could easily replace steel components in different industries.
