Aluminum Alloys for Electric Vans

New energy application scenarios continue to be enriched, and the low-carbon development of the automobile industry is the general trend of carbon neutrality. "Mileage anxiety" is one of the important factors restricting the development of new energy vehicles, and lightweighting of automobiles is the most effective way to quickly improve the endurance of automobiles.

According to relevant research, lightweighting of automotive components can effectively increase the driving range. For every 100kg weight reduction of passenger cars, fuel vehicles can reduce fuel consumption by 0.48L, new energy vehicles can reduce battery costs and daily loss costs by 20%, and the driving range can be increased by about 10%.

The car body accounts for about 30% of the total weight of the car. The traditional car body covering materials are mainly steel structural parts. The lightweight structural materials that can be put into use include high-strength steel, aluminum alloy, magnesium alloy, plastic, carbon fiber, etc. Among various lightweight materials, the cost of aluminum alloy is only higher than that of high-strength steel.

Its density is 1/3 of that of high-strength steel, which is equivalent to the density of magnesium alloy. Considering the cost investment, weight reduction benefits, safety performance and other aspects, aluminum alloy has become one of the most widely used materials for automobile lightweight transformation.

Aluminum wheels are gradually replacing steel wheels because of their light weight, good heat dissipation and good appearance. Aluminum alloy wheels have a very obvious effect on reducing fuel consumption, and most car wheels are made of 6061 t6511 aluminum alloy.

For manufacturers of OTR truck or commercial electric vans, the use of aluminum alloys can reduce weight by up to 350 kg, which can improve driver comfort and increase the number of electrical components.

Due to the advantages of aluminum alloys, its penetration rate in car doors, hoods, and tailgates continues to increase. The battery is the most core component of electric vans and a pure incremental component in the process of new energy vehicles replacing fuel vehicles. With excellent cost performance, aluminum battery box is the first choice for power batteries.

AA3003 is widely used in the manufacture of power battery shells as a key protective component of the battery system. Due to the need to withstand various complex environments and mechanical shocks, the performance requirements of aluminum alloys are relatively high. 3003 automotive aluminum sheets can meet this need.
