          As the demand increases to make   wide variety of possibilities for   the driving force for manufacturing
          automobile lighter for the sake of   aluminium materials through the   vehicles is the engineering spirit
          reducing CO 2  emissions, the     technologies exhibited in the Innovation   cultivated by the UACJ R&D Center.   //
          development of technology using   Area. Behind the technological
          aluminium is in progress. I could see a   developments that play a core role as

          Packed with hints for bringing out aluminium’s

          functionality in vehicle manufacture

           The ‘U-AI Lab’ innovation area is on the ground floor of the
          UACJ R&D Center. Although ‘U-AI’ is pronounced ‘YOU-EYE’, it is
          actually a pun on AI, the chemical symbol for aluminium. All
          kinds of aluminium-related products and technologies are on dis-
          play, ranging from various parts and materials to the principles of
          forming, joining and surface treatment. It’s a treasure trove of
          ideas, where items with unexpected functions and purposes can
          also be found.
           The open innovation-oriented automobile technology corner
          provides a wide space for the display of items such as bonnet
          hoods, bumper reinforcements, and front doors. At the center is a
          prototype battery housing for power train electrification.    //


          At the UACJ Research & Development Division, comprehensive developments on automobile materials, including ng
          aluminum alloy materials, optimization of surface treatment and processing and joining are being carried out.
