The AEC will be conducting a one-hour introductory webinar, hosted by Design News, for those that are relatively new to aluminum extrusions in the automotive industry. The use of extruded aluminum shapes in North American light vehicles has more than doubled in a decade to over 50 pounds per vehicle. Today aluminum extrusions are used for crush cans, trim members, battery enclosures, rocker sections, and more — each with a unique set of performance requirements. This webinar will explore how engineers are optimizing performance in new applications and how your material decisions can minimize embedded carbon in the resulting parts.
