Body-In-White Structure



BIW means Automotive Body-in-White which structural components must perform to exacting standards and possess exceptional performance characteristics. Min-aluminum has the cutting-edge technologies to supply the innovative aluminum structural components required by today’s automobile manufacturers.

Min-aluminum is working closely with automotive manufacturers on the design and production of structural body-in-white (BIW) components and modules from the earliest development stage through to production. We leverage our vast expertise in materials and process technologies to deliver solutions and innovations that help automobile manufacturers remain competitive.

Automotive BIW structures must perform to exacting standards and possess exceptional performance characteristics. Aluminum is the only material capable of delivering the exceptional weight savings required for automotive BIW structures. Automotive manufacturers are increasingly producing either aluminum space frame solutions or hybrid aluminum BIW structures integrating other materials – we help customers optimize the benefits of this cost-effective solution.


Min-aluminum provides automotive manufacturers with more than just the already extensive advantages of lightweighting. We also provide engineered solutions specific to their needs: products and modules for improved fuel economy, high performance of parts and material utilization, and reductions in tooling costs.
