Adrian SernaAdrian Serna is a Spanish business development specialist with several years of experience in aluminum components. His first project was with a Japanese Tier 1 aluminum company to bring hot forging production in-house and to localize production from Japan to USA.

New bonding techniques including fiber laser welding and adhesive allow for use of stronger aluminum alloys or multi materials. Weight reduction up to 30% can be achieved when compared to conventional bonding methods. This joining technology can reduce cycle times, improve process costs, lower energy consumption / CO2 output and offer material cost savings.
