Aluminum alloy sheet is not unfamiliar in the field of contemporary lightweight vehicles. Automotive aluminum will become a new growth point for aluminum panels in the future with the development of lightweight vehicles.
The light weight of the aluminum plate is one of the larger quality of the product itself.The body weight consumes about 70% of the fuel under normal circumstances. Therefore, the primary problem of reducing the fuel consumption of the car is to make the car lighter. The main material of car is aluminum plate.Ford released the 2015 F-150 model, 97% of the body is made of aluminum, which is 320 kg less than the previous steel body model, and fuel efficiency is increased by 30%.
The aluminum plate has high strength, corrosion resistance, good elasticity, excellent impact resistance, good processing and high recyclability, which makes the aluminum plate develop rapidly in the automotive field. At present, the application of aluminum plates in the automotive field mainly lies in auto parts: including automobile hoods, doors, tailgates and side panels.
