  • Jargon & Glossary
  • A semi-processed form of aluminum obtained when bauxite, an aluminum-bearing ore, is refined.
  • Body-In-White
  • The structural components of a vehicle.
  • Drawing
  • A process for producing wire, bar or tube by pulling metal, increasing its length and reducing its diameter. Wire is typically pulled through a series of dies (holes) of decreasing size.
  • Extruding
  • The process of forcing a solid and usually heated metal through an opening with the shape as the desired end-product. A hydraulically operated ram is used to push the metal through the opening.
  • Ingot
  • Semi-processed metal shapes that usually require further shaping, such as cold and hot working, cutting or milling to produce a useful final product.
  • Primary Manufacturing
  • Production of metals from ore
  • Rolling
  • A process that reduces the thickness of a piece of metal by passing it through successive rotating mills that compress the metal.
  • Secondary Manufacturing
  • Smelting, refining, and blending metal recovered from primary metal production or from recycled metal.
  • Semi-Fabrication
  • Includes several industrial processes for the production of rolled products, extrusions, wire, tubes, forgings and castings.
  • Unwrought
  • The output of primary and secondary aluminum production prior to further processing and fabrication
