Keep on Truckin’ Lightly with Aluminum Welding

Posted by Chris Anderson on Jan 25, 2017 3:13:24 PM

Manufacturers of over-the-road vehicles (also referred to as OTR or long-haul trucks), and to a lesser degree car manufacturers, are improving fuel economy and reducing the weight of their vehicles with aluminum. Assembling frames, trailers and other components made of aluminum requires welding, and there are important differences between robotically welding steel components versus those made of aluminum.
