As we continue our look at automotive manufacturing, today we are reviewing forming and shaping metal. With improvements in manufacturing processes, almost all metal components on a car are now made by pressing the metal to a mold. Some are done with hot metal while others are cold formed, but both methods use energy that is often produced from natural gas. Every vehicle on the road is powered by oil and gas in one manner or another. If you have a specific question, send us a message, or plan to join us at the Eastern Gas Compression Roundtable, May 2-4, 2023 at the David Lawrence Convention Center in Pittsburgh, PA.
