Vehicle And Electric Vehicle Aluminum Extrusion FAQ

Here are most of the questions related to automotive aluminum extrusion. We hope you will find the answer to your question. If not, please leave us a message.

What aluminum is suitable for manufacturing automotive aluminum extrusion?2023-10-10T07:44:29+00:00

The most suitable aluminum for manufacturing automotive aluminum extrusions is 6061T6. This alloy is special, having been solution heat treated, quenched, cooled, and aged. The aging is done artificially to ensure that the aluminum alloy presents precipitation hardening according to specifications.

Since this alloy is in the 6xxx series, it has one of the best corrosion resistance. It also has fair machinability, cementing its candidacy for automotive aluminum extrusion applications.

For the economics of a project, aluminum 6061T6 is relatively cost-effective. Most manufacturers prefer it because it presents good properties at an affordable price. Even if an alloy such as 7075T6 aluminum is stronger, you will find most users going for 6061T6 based on cost.

It is also worth noting that even though 6061T6 may require a skilled welder, joining it is not so challenging. Surface finishing and painting the aluminum alloy is simple too.

For these main reasons, aluminum alloy extrusions manufactured from aluminum 6061T6 are the most popular in the automotive industry.

What parts in a truck use aluminum extrusions?2024-02-20T08:16:07+00:00

Using aluminum extrusions to build different parts of a truck presents many benefits. They include corrosion resistance, strength, and lightweight (fuel economy). Many parts of a truck are made from aluminum extrusions. A good example is the doors, which can be designed according to the customer’s specifications because aluminum allows for flexible design. Provided the doors are designed together with quality seals, dust and moisture will be kept off.

Truck roofs are also made from extruded aluminum. They work perfectly together with aluminum roof bows and wall panels to ensure that the product not only meets the customer’s size requirements but also prevents the entry of weather elements.

Truck frames are also made from aluminum extrusions. Customers have diverse requirements, and aluminum is capable of meeting most of these requirements. For instance, truck frames need to be lightweight. Alongside this is the requirement to be sturdy because the trucking industry is synonymous with extreme stress.

What are the benefits of using aluminum extrusion in a vehicle?2023-10-10T07:46:29+00:00

Aluminum extrusions present numerous benefits in a vehicle because they have numerous attractive qualities.

Lightweight – this is one characteristic that makes aluminum extrusions stand out from steel and other alternatives for vehicle extrusions. Due to its high strength-to-weight ratio, the material weighs a fraction of the other metals while offering good strength.

Strength – Even before being strengthened, aluminum extrusions for vehicles are strong. Fabricators of vehicle components can capitalize on this feature by varying the thickness, length, and profiles of the material. Not even falling of temperature can affect the strength of aluminum.

Sustainability – the fact that aluminum extrusions are recyclable and do not lose a significant level of original integrity is beneficial in vehicle manufacture.  When the vehicle becomes old, the aluminum extrusions can be repurposed into a new vehicle or something else.

Corrosion resistance – The corrosion resistance of aluminum extrusions is excellent, but it can also be enhanced through anodizing and other processes.

Non-magnetic – being non-magnetic, aluminum extrusions don’t interfere with vehicle electronics

 

For these and other features, aluminum extrusions offer numerous benefits in vehicle design. Lightweight is the most prominent because it means that the vehicle’s fuel economy is enhanced. The vehicle engine does not have a lot of weight to carry.

It also means that transport is more cost-effective because more passengers or goods can be carried.

The future of aluminum extrusions for the automotive industry looks very positive. Consumer trends point towards an increasing demand for fuel efficiency. This gives aluminum a head start because it is lightweight. Using aluminum extrusions minimizes the weight of the vehicle, thereby helping use less fuel.

Many governments are keen on enhancing fuel efficiency and reducing emissions in the automotive industry. The consequent policies and regulations give a boost to aluminum extrusions because the demand for lightweight extrusions increases.

Electric vehicles (EVs) are also becoming trendier by the day, and we are certain this will increase the demand for automotive aluminum extrusions. Batteries can bring a lot of weight, so the rest of the vehicle design must be as light as possible. Aluminum extrusions are the best option. As EVs become more common around the globe, expect a related increase in the demand for aluminum profiles. Automotive factories are also increasingly incorporating aluminum extrusions in their processes.

Currently, popular alloys for automotive aluminum extrusions include 7xxx series and 6xxx series. Prominently extruded auto components include the heatsink, EV battery tray, framework, and body.

Does bending weaken Aluminum?2023-05-04T04:12:28+00:00

Bending may or may not strengthen the aluminum alloy. In other cases, the reverse is true. Bending can also lead to the weakening of aluminum alloys. This is dependent on conditions to which the metal is exposed to. If they’re extreme, you can be certain the metal will be weakened.

On the flipside, the right conditions will make the aluminum stronger if exposed to bending. Therefore, the question of strengthening or weakening aluminum is subject to the environment you expose the metal to.

What is the max. width you can extrude?2023-12-05T03:13:45+00:00

The max. width that we can do depends on the exact profile shape. Please send us your CAD drawings for a brief check firstly.

The wider the cross-section, the larger the extrusion press is needed. Our largest capability is with width 750mm for some shapes. Many construction companies will be concerned about the maximum width that an aluminum extruder can do. For example, the width of the aluminum formwork usually needs to be at least 300mm.

In cooperation with top institutions in China, we offer and produce aluminum extrusions with a maximum section width of 1100mm. We are working with many famous transportation companies on large size aluminum extrusions.
