The race to build the ideal automobile began in the 1880s with innovations such as handbrakes, multi-speed transmissions, better steering, and sleeker frames taking the spotlight. Although the race has never stopped, the image of the ‘ideal’ car has undergone a drastic makeover. From material testing and integrating Cloud services in cars to improving fuel efficiency and adhering to environmental regulatory standards, the automotive manufacturing landscape experiences constant innovations.
When it comes to the primary material for automotive manufacturing, trends are shifting more towards aluminum, plastics, and carbon fibers from cold-formed steel. Aluminum, for example, is a much softer metal than steel and hence can be worked upon at room temperature, saving the manufacturer time and money. While some manufacturers use a superior material to work with, others have chosen different routes. Piston rings, heat shields, valve components, and other products must be manufactured to be exceptionally heat and abrasion-resistant without substantial wear. Leading technologies in the manufacture of these components has led to the manufacture of automobiles with excellent fuel economy, security, and an overall guarantee for the driver’s well-being.
