Coming Soon - Specifying & Achieving Desired Extrusion Performance

In Conjunction with SAE

Since 2012, the usage of extruded aluminum shapes in North American light vehicles has grown by more than 50%, to over 25 pounds per vehicle. Today, aluminum extrusions can be found in applications as varied as crush cans, trim members, rocker sections and seat backs – each with a unique set of performance requirements. As automotive aluminum extrusion applications continue to grow, engineers seeking optimized performance are increasingly going beyond the “shorthand” of alloy and temper designation and specifying the desired microstructure for the final component.
