Design & Fabrication of Aluminum Automobiles

Frank G. Armao, The Lincoln Electric Company

Track: VALUE-ADDED PROCESSES - Fabrication

ABSTRACT --- Aluminum extruded for automotive assembly design and fabrication
allows component design that puts section thickness only where needed. Previously,
gas metal arc welding (GMAW) was incapable of handling thin materials used in
automotive fabrication. Recently, revolutionary welding equipment for fabricating
aluminum allows automotive gauges to be readily welded. Currently produced
automotive assemblies use GMAW extensively. GMAW automotive project applications
are discussed.
