Novelis Inc. Key Developments
Novelis Inc. Supplies Aluminum Solutions for Ford F-Series Super Duty Truck
Dec 15 15
Novelis Inc. announced it is supplying high-strength, military-grade, aluminum for the upcoming Ford F-Series Super Duty lineup of trucks, the toughest, smartest, most capable Super Duty ever. Following the launch of the 2015 Ford F-150, the aluminum-intensive F-Series Super Duty trucks also feature high-strength, military-grade, Novelis aluminum alloys in the body and bed, reducing overall vehicle weight by up to 350 pounds. This weight reduction enables the use of tougher underbody components such as an all-new, fully boxed high-strength frame, stronger axles and springs, larger brakes and driveline parts for superior performance. The truck series will represent the second-highest volume aluminum application in automotive to date, surpassed only by the F-150, which saved up to 700 pounds of weight for increased capability, performance and efficiency. Novelis will produce the aluminum sheet for the F-Series Super Duty trucks at its plant in Oswego, N.Y. The plant is in the process of commissioning its third automotive sheet finishing line, which has been contracted to support production of the Super Duty and will begin shipping product in spring 2016.

Novelis celebrated the opening of a aluminum automotive heat treatment line in Nachterstedt, Germany, to serve European and global automotive customers. Located adjacent to Novelis' existing rolling mill and the large aluminum recycling center, the $85 million investment will increase production capacity by 120,000 metric tons of automotive sheet annually. At full production, this line will increase Novelis' European automotive sheet capacity to 350,000 metric tons per year and will provide global customers with high-quality automotive sheet, including the Novelis Advanz portfolio of alloys used in lightweight vehicle structures and body panels. With this expansion, the company widens its global manufacturing operations to serve the rapidly growing automotive market. The technology used in the new Nachterstedt finishing line is identical to that of the lines recently commissioned in the United States and China, providing Novelis' global customers with the high level of quality and consistency regardless of location.
