Changeable aluminum alloys have appeared in which industries

2023-08-21 11:02

Aluminum alloy is the most widely used non-ferrous metal structural materials in the industry. With the rapid development of industrial economy, the demand for aluminum alloy welded structural parts is increasing, and now it has been widely used in aerospace, automobile, machinery manufacturing, ship and daily life.

Transformed into an aluminum alloy made of mobile phone material

In the past, most of the mobile phone body material was plastic, and then Apple's emergence boldly used tempered glass instead of plastic material, but tempered glass was fragile and inconvenient to use, and later Apple switched to aluminum alloy materials as metal bodies, which drove the entire mobile phone industry.

Why use aluminum alloy material as a metal body?

Aluminum alloy materials are easier to process high-grade, beautiful and shining feeling. Secondly, the aluminum alloy material is very light, the specific gravity is only one-third of stainless steel, he is also scratch-resistant, although its strength is not high, the mobile phone bump will have small pits but will not have scratches. In addition, aluminum alloy materials also have the characteristics of high temperature resistance, no handprints, antistatic, environmental protection and non-toxic.

Aluminum alloy material that flew into the sky

Aviation materials have a great impact on the performance of aircraft, the use of aluminum alloy materials to manufacture aircraft, its biggest advantage is the proportion of aluminum alloy itself is light, the weight of the aircraft itself is very light, so that the aircraft can fly to the sky with relatively small power.

Domestic aircraft manufacturing will use three basic aluminum alloys according to the different conditions and parts of the aircraft: high-strength aluminum alloy, heat-resistant aluminum alloy, and corrosion-resistant aluminum alloy;

High-strength aluminum alloy is mainly used in aircraft fuselage, engine compartment, seat and other components

Heat-resistant aluminum alloy is mainly used in the cabin of electric motors, air exchange systems, etc

Corrosion-resistant aluminum alloy is mainly used in seaplanes, it belongs to aluminum-magnesium alloy and aluminum-magnesium-zinc alloy

In addition to manufacturing aircraft, domestically manufactured spacecraft also use aluminum alloy materials. At present, aluminum alloys used in aerospace are mainly divided into: aluminum alloy large extruded profiles, aluminum lithium alloy, aluminum alloy thick plate, aluminum alloy castings.

Aluminum alloy and automobile lightweight

Due to the demand for environmental protection and energy saving, the lightweight of automobiles has become a new trend in the development of the domestic automotive industry. Due to its lower density and high-quality performance, aluminum alloy can reduce the weight of the body, so that the car can obtain better power and reduce fuel consumption. At the same time, aluminum alloy is a very good recycling material, which also makes the maintenance of the car easier, both in terms of economy and performance is better, therefore, aluminum alloy has become the preferred material in the development of automobile lightweight technology.

Which parts of today's car production are made of aluminum alloys?

Theoretically, parts on automobiles can be made of aluminum alloys. Such as all-aluminum engine, all-aluminum body, car wheels, horns and swing arms in the suspension system, and the luggage rack on the roof of the car are all made of aluminum materials.
