Transportation

NobelClad is re-imagining what’s possible with clad metal in the transportation industry. Reducing the weight, while increasing the reliability, is particularly critical to the success of aerospace, rail, automotive and construction applications. By welding highly dissimilar metals, we offer design flexibility with the use of lightweight materials.
Whether we are creating transition joints for high-speed rail cars or joining aluminum to steel in trailer or vehicle cars, NobelClad’s expertly welded clad metals provide the superior joining, corrosion-resistance and fatigue strength required for modern transportation, while improving the manufacturing time and lowering energy consumption.
