Leading in Customer Collaboration
Novelis understands that each new vehicle model presents a unique challenge to automakers. To help answer new design challenges, Novelis has a team of specialists available to assess the mechanical properties, design flexibility and range of fabrication alternatives needed to realize next-generation vehicles.
In addition to providing the right alloys, Novelis offers tailored finishes and designations for the highest-performing products. Our best-in-class joining solutions, like Self-Pierce Riveting (SPR) and remote laser welding, ensure the strongest possible adhesive joining and bond durability.
Mixed-Material Vehicle Production
As aluminum can be joined with other metals, Novelis has expertise in mixed-material construction and provides technical guidance to automakers from design to production. This allows automakers to be highly flexible when choosing the right mix of materials.
Novelis’ products and joining technologies make it possible to integrate aluminum into a mixed-material vehicle without requiring a significant investment in new manufacturing equipment.
