Customer Webinar: The Power of the Hollow: Using Hollow Aluminum Extrusions to Meet Vehicle Engineering Challenges
Automotive Extrusions Webinar

September 30, 2020
1:00 p.m. CDT
Speaker: Mark Butterfield; Managing Director, MAGNODE – A Shape Corp. Company
Hosted by: SAE International

One of the attributes of aluminum extrusions that can provide both design flexibility and performance benefits for the automotive engineer is the ability to design profiles that "put the metal where it is needed". That's particularly advantageous when it comes to hollow shapes, particularly multi-void hollows which can be engineered for a combination of crush resistance, strength, light weight and more. This webinar will review some of the more interesting uses of multi-void hollows in today's vehicles, and discuss the alloy, design and processing considerations necessary to ensure success.

In addition, there will be a brief overview of AEC's new online educational tool for automotive designers that highlights the use of aluminum extrusions in various vehicle systems.
