We offer high quality automotive metal pressings in the UK and are based in the West Midlands. Pressings have been around for more than 40 years. It’s the most popular choice for automotive industries. This is due to their high strength and low weight. A world steel announcement mentioned that the automotive industry accounts for roughly 12% of the global steel consumption.
A study reveals that the average aluminium content in cars is set to increase to 19% of a car’s curb weight by the year 2025. Aluminium is a lighter metal than steel. The increased amount of aluminium used in an average automobile is a good reflection of the increase in the scope of application of metals.
