Aluminum, Advanced Laser Joining Lightens CT6

Posted on May 23, 2016

Aluminum-rolled products provider and recycler Novelis reports its aluminum is used in the 2016 Cadillac CT6 vehicle's body, which is produced using advanced laser joining techniques.

The Cadillac CT6 features a body made of 62% aluminum. Through the use of aluminum and advanced joining techniques, Cadillac has achieved significant weight savings, making the full-size Cadillac CT6 luxury sedan comparable in weight to the smaller midsize Cadillac CTS sedan. When compared to a similar size vehicle using predominantly high-strength steel, the CT6 is approximately 220lbs lighter.
