Amino North America produces aluminum body panels with the same sheet hydroforming technology used on steel panels for Pontiac Solstice and Saturn Sky hoods, doors, decklids, and bodyside outers. Sheet hydroforming aluminum allows deeper drawn Class A panels with improved styling, repeatability, and surface quality than conventional stampings. Benefits include 50% lighter panel mass vs. steel. Aluminum sheets can be used for Class A body panels and underbody panels on automotive, commercial vehicles, or recreational vehicles.
