Aluminium Matrix Composites – a breakthrough in vehicle weight reduction

Liberate your design imagination – make aluminium components smaller, ferrous components lighter – radically reduce vehicle weight and CO2 emissions

Components reinforced with continuous fibre reinforced aluminium matrix composites (CFR-AMCs) are attractive for engine applications (such as block reinforcement, engine mounts, main bearing caps, connecting rods and piston pins), transmissions (gearbox casings, differential housings, transfer case housings), suspension components (uprights, radius arms, etc), brake calipers, seat frames, wheels, body structural components and sub-frames. Rotating or reciprocating components are particularly suited to CFR-AMC application, as the reduction in inertia will improve dynamic performance.
