Constellium and Novelis establish Alumobility
Launched by the two industry leaders Constellium and Novelis, the new non-profit organization "Alumobility" wants to further advance the use of aluminum body sheets in automotive construction. Through joint technical projects and partnerships with global automakers, Alumobility aims to help develop smarter, lighter, safer and more sustainable vehicles.
Alumobility has already developed technical studies looking at the next generation of aluminum doors and an all-aluminum structural B-pillar. The resulting design solutions make it clear that aluminum can compete effectively with other materials for high-volume vehicles at relatively low cost to manufacturers.
"Aluminum offers the promise of a stronger, more collaborative, more sustainable mobility future," said Jack Clark, Vice President of Alumobility and Constellium's Senior Vice President of Manufacturing and Chief Technical Officer. "The technical work published by Alumobility will reinforce the vital role of lightweight, sustainable aluminum, particularly for electric vehicles, while increasing recycling and reducing carbon emissions throughout the lifecycle."
"Alumobility is a collaboration of organizations to enthusiastically innovate and demonstrate the advantages of aluminum auto body sheet in vehicle applications," said Pierre Labat, President of Alumobility and Vice President, Global Automotive at Novelis. "Our global ecosystem approach is focused on action and leverages the best minds in our industry to support OEMs and deliver aluminum-enabled mobility."
