Back to the time in 1910, aluminum plate has already been used in public transportations. After decades’ development, nowadays, most of the bodies of fuel-tank trucks, semi-trailers and trailers are made of aluminum plate products. In the meantime, there is an increment in the use of aluminum plate products in passenger cars, so, in the near future aluminum car bodies must occupy the advantage in the market.
There are serious advantages for the application of aluminum in autos, such as higher strength-to-weight ratio, higher fuel efficiency, and better formability. As a result, in such a tough period regarding to energy and environmental issues, aluminum plays an essential role in weight lightening, and fuel efficiency increment to ease the energy and environmental problems.
Signi aluminum is capable of providing various aluminum plate and profiles for automotive industries, which can be used in truck chassis, oil tank, passenger car body panel, body structure and heat exchange system etc.
