Lightweight aluminum automotive body panels

Cars are no longer a simple means of travel, but every car fan’s pursuit of the concept of lightness, speed, energy saving, and fashion. Therefore, automobile lightweighting has become the current development trend, and the selection of aluminum alloy for automobile body panels has become the key to realizing automobile lightweighting! As we all know, the car body is mainly composed of sealing parts such as hood, door, front and rear fenders, underbody protection plate, and roof. These seals are made from aluminum car body panels, which can greatly reduce the overall weight of the car and gradually replace traditional steel!

Aluminum alloy selection for automobile body panels

The doors, hood, and front and rear fenders of the main body structure are made of aluminum alloy body panels, including 5182 aluminum panels. It is worth mentioning that Mingtai has received customer feedback that the stamping effect of 6061 and 5182 aluminum alloy automobile body panels is very good and there are no cracks.Secondly, for the bottom protection panel and roof panel of the car, 5083, 5754 and 5052 aluminum alloy body panels are usually used. Among them, 5083 and 5052 aluminum plates are the most widely used in these auto parts, with good practical application results and very good market response. Here, Mingtai has very mature aluminum alloy automobile body panel production technology, which can produce and process thickness ranges from 0.30-600mm and width ranges from 150-2600mm.

Advantages of aluminum alloy for automobile body panels

1. The weight reduction and energy saving effect is obvious. Aluminum alloy body panels can reduce vehicle weight by 10%. In addition, for every 100 kilograms of car weight lost, fuel consumption per 100 kilometers can be reduced by 0.4 liters, carbon dioxide emissions can be reduced by 1 kilogram, and fuel efficiency can be improved by 6%–8%.2. Excellent corrosion resistance. The naturally formed oxide film on the surface of aluminum automobile body panels has good corrosion resistance, so the "all-aluminum body" will be more durable than the traditional steel body.3. Improve comfort and safety. Aluminum alloy car body panels are used to reduce the weight of the car without reducing the car's capacity, thereby lowering the center of gravity of the car body and making the car run more stable and comfortable. At the same time, aluminum alloy car body panels have good energy absorption capabilities. Even if the deformation area at the front of the car wrinkles in a collision, it can absorb a large amount of impact force, thereby protecting the driver and passengers in the car.Welcome to contact us to order!
