2019 Aluminum Design Seminar

Please join us in May for the Aluminum Transportation Group's Spring Design Seminar in Detroit
to learn about developments and advancements in aluminum technology from aluminum experts
from leading producer companies such as Arconic, Hydro, Aleris and others.

 

Automakers Not Planning to Reduce
Weight in Smallest of Small Cars

Draft SAFE Vehicles Rule assumptions on lightweighting in small cars
demonstrably false. Automakers directing mass reduction strategies
in larger, heavier cars, trucks and SUV’s.

 

Environmental Superiority

Automotive aluminum offers the smallest total
carbon footprint among competing materials.

 

What's Next? Unprecedented Aluminum Growth as Multi-Material Vehicles Ascend

Automakers will continue to increase the adoption
of aluminum in new car and truck construction
at a faster pace than any time in history.

 

Infinite Possibilities

Automotive Aluminum Recycling Rate
Higher Than 90 percent, New Study Confirms.

We’re back this #Spring hosting our second #Aluminum Design Seminar in the Motor City May 1-2 at @TechTownDetroit. If you’re an #engineer who wants to learn about the #aluminumadvantage in automotive design, #savethedate and register here: https://t.co/6ZHhOBRDR5

The U.S. aluminum industry is a key element of the nation's manufacturing base, supporting nearly 700,000 works and generating nearly $174 billion in economic output. https://t.co/867EpoIPSk

Why auto industry is increasingly opting for #aluminum extrusions

Analysis: https://t.co/CdmF9qJsuV

We analyzed the effects of using a Constellium #aluminium car hood versus a #steel version. Assessed by a third party, it showed that #GHGemissions of the aluminium hood using our material were 37% lower ! Aluminium's #strength and #lightness allows for lower fuel consumption.
