Arconic technology centers are engineering the answers
At Arconic we’ve transformed impossible ideas into commercial successes for more than a century. From the lightweight materials that enabled the Wright Brothers’ first flight, to the revolutionary aluminum-intensive Ford F-150, our innovations have helped create new industries and transform existing ones… and we’re just getting started. We continually seek out ways to advance cutting- edge technologies, such as 3D printing, which have the power to change the world. At Arconic, we are proud to partner with forward-thinking companies to engineer products and solutions that turn today’s challenges into tomorrow’s next great innovation.
Our breakthrough Arconic Micromill™ technology produces an alloy that is 40 percent more formable and 30 percent stronger than today’s automotive aluminum and twice as formable and at least 30 percent lighter than high-strength steel. Micromill reduces a 20 day production process to a mere 20 minutes. The technology is allowing our customers to redefine the boundaries of vehicle design to create lighter, safer, more fuel-efficient and stylish vehicles for the future.
