Copper retains several properties which make it essential in many cars’ functionality, efficiency, comfort, and safety. Copper is a multi-purpose material whose properties have made it a key component in vehicles. Copper offers high electrical conductivity, high thermal conductivity, good corrosion resistance, and good bearing properties making it a key component in numerous vehicles.
Aluminium has been used to manufacture automobiles for over one hundred years. Aluminium blends easily to make lightweight but strong alloys, holding numerous properties which make it perfect for use in the automotive sector. These properties include lightweight, strong, flexible, malleable, conductivity and corrosion resistant. Aluminium is used for the vehicle frame and body, electrical wiring, wheels, lamps, paint, transmission, air conditioner condenser and pipes. It benefits the performance, safety and fuel efficiency of the vehicle.
You will find copper products in every car because it’s used for pipes and wiring harness systems. We know how important the design and manufacturing process is to create high-quality cables, connectors and pipes that can withstand extreme temperatures underneath the hood. Copper also has excellent thermal conductivity making it perfect for cooling systems and high-temperature environments.
Aluminium also plays an important role in vehicle manufacturing. Thanks to its lightweight properties and ease of fabrication, most cars’ bodies and die casting today are made out of different mixed aluminium alloys.
As electric vehicles become more popular, both metals will increase in popularity and require advanced design processes and more sophisticated manufacturing. This is where ILF comes in with our state-of-the-art metal fabricating machines and experts with years of experience.
