In recent years, with the increasingly serious energy and environmental problems, automobiles, which are the main sources of energy consumption and pollutant emissions, are subject to increasingly stringent requirements in terms of reducing energy consumption, reducing emissions and improving fuel efficiency.
The goal of energy saving and emission reduction is difficult to achieve only by optimizing the traditional fuel power system, and lightweight has become another important measure. The automobile lightweight is mainly achieved through structural optimization design, lightweight material and advanced manufacturing technology.
At present, the lightweight materials used to replace traditional steel mainly include ultra-high-strength steel, aluminum alloy, magnesium alloy and fiber-reinforced plastic. Automotive aluminum sheet has high comprehensive indicators in terms of technological maturity, price, weight reduction ability, high recycling value and convenience,making it the currently preferred lightweight material.
The aluminum alloy sheets used in automobile bodies mainly include non-heat-treatable 5000 series (Al-Mg), heat-treatable 6000 series (Al-Mg-Si) and 7000 series (Al-Zn-Mg-Cu). 5000 aluminum alloys like 5052 aluminum coil have relatively good formability and corrosion resistance, but the surface quality is difficult to control, and they are mainly used for body inner panels.
6000 aluminum alloys like 6061 aluminum plate have good comprehensive properties and are mainly used for body outer panels. 7000 aluminium alloys are more expensive, but higher strength can make the applied sheet thinner and further reduce weight, and it is useful for high-load body structures.
Stamping technology has the advantages of high production efficiency, high material utilization rate, high precision of formed parts, and low cost in mass production. It has great advantages in mass production of components. Therefore, various heat treatment-stamping integration technologies springs up.
For the heat treatment-stamping integration technology, not only the influence of recovery and recrystallization on the microstructure and mechanical properties of the aluminum alloy should be considered, but also the change of the alloy state caused by the heat treatment.
For the heat treatment-stamping integration technology, not only the influence of recovery and recrystallization on the microstructure and mechanical properties of the aluminum alloy should be considered, but also the change of the alloy state caused by the heat treatment. Therefore, the heat treatment-stamping integrated process should also pay attention to the matching with the baking aging, so as to optimize the performance of the components.
