Aluminum Extrusion Fabrication Solutions for the Automotive & Transportation Markets

Giovanni Barbareschi, Tekna s.r.l., Milan, Italy

Track: VALUE-ADDED PROCESSES - Fabrication

ABSTRACT --- The increasing use of aluminum components for the
Automotive and Transportation Industry has required the introduction of efficient
and cost-effective fabrication solutions. When large volumes of semi-finished
components have to be addressed, automated plants that include fabrication
together with material-handling systems are considered. Since the use of
aluminum extrusions has always been predominant in Building and Construction,
for many years a wide range of fabrication solutions have been developed and
supplied to the Windows, Doors, Curtain Walls, and Cladding Systems
Manufacturers. It is based on the combination of the expertise being built in the
Fenestration Industry and the know-how available in the long-time established
Machine Tools market that cost-effective and highly-productive fabrication
solutions for aluminum extrusions have been developed and are now available in
the market. The objective of this paper is to present some significant fabrication
solutions that have been implemented within the Automotive and Transportation
market for trains, automobiles, commercial vehicles, trucks and trailers, and
marine applications.
