Huron Automatic Screw Company continues to offer premium aluminum parts as the industry experiences high demand for aluminum.
Over the last few years many automakers have been adapting their vehicle models to consist of more aluminum parts. As a result, Huron Automatic Screw Company has observed a higher demand for aluminum from customers than ever before. As usual, they have met and exceeded the challenge. Huron Automatic Screw Company has offered precision parts and threaded fasteners made from a variety of materials for decades.
What is Causing High Demand for Aluminum Parts?
As the auto industry has turned its focus toward fuel-efficiency, one factor they must consider is the overall weight of the vehicle. Aluminum, being a relatively lightweight metal in comparison to steel, is the most reasonable option. In fact, various auto-parts have displayed a drop in weight of up to 50% due to the transition. Because of this, aluminum has become the second-most used material in automobiles with potential to be the first. Studies have shown that the use of lightweight aluminum parts in cars has resulted in improved vehicle performance, reduced CO2 emissions, and a boost in fuel-economy. Aside from this, the aluminum alloys designed for automobiles have shocked their developers through their ability to absorb energy. Some studies have shown aluminum alloys absorbing as much as twice the amount of energy than steel when experiencing a collision. This means that aluminum may just be the ingredient to a stronger, lighter, safer, and more fuel-efficient ride.
