goic establishment and objective s
GOIC - Establishment and objectives

Gulf Organization for Industrial Consulting (GOIC) was established in 1976 by the Gulf States. The Republic of Yemen joined the organization in 2009. The establishing of GOIC was to be an industrial consultative-coordinative institution that provides research and distinguished industrial consulting services for both public as well as private sectors. Its goal was also to meet the need for a source of information that works on reinforcing industry and industrial investments through the flow of knowledge and information.

challenges in making aluminium castings for automotive applications
Challenges in making aluminium castings for automotive applications
  • Engine components require high integrity, stiffness, retention of properties at moderate elevated temperatures, and good wear resistance
  • Chassis and suspension components require high integrity, good strength/ductility, fatigue endurance, crashworthiness, and weldability
  • Body components require high integrity, thin walls, high ductility, crashworthiness, and weldability
  • Turbulence can lead to the entrapment of air or other cavity gases
  • Quenching the components for heat treatment may cause their distortion and straightening adds additional cost
  • Development of alloys that meet high strength and ductility requirements without the need for heat treatment
aluminium extrusions in cars
Aluminium Extrusions in Cars
  • Frame & body structure
  • Drive shaft
  • Transmission parts
  • Door & window frames
  • Reinforcement beams
  • Running boards
  • Roof racks


challenges in making aluminium extrusion parts for automotive
Challenges in Making Aluminium Extrusion Parts for Automotive
  • Developing suitable alloys to meet accurate and repeatable physical and mechanical properties
  • Precise requirement of product integrity and formability
  • Near Net Shape Extrusion technology
  • Stretch forming & hydro forming for obtaining accurately formed interconnecting components
  • Intricate, multi-chambered hollow sections for condenser tubes adopting precision die and novel die insert technologies
  • Design & engineering solution for component, parts and structural assemblies
  • Specific heat treatment practices for standard alloys
  • Final fabrication & assembly techniques.
challenges in making aluminium sheet components for automotive
Challenges in Making Aluminium Sheet Components for Automotive
  • Development of new alloys
  • Development of suitable forming processes (stamping, tailor-welded blanks, hydroforming, electromagnetic forming, and warm forming)
  • Continuous die design development
  • More efficient and/or lower-cost continuous joining processes for panel joints
  • Methods for reducing or eliminating slivers during cutting
  • Minimizing metal required for achieving flat hems and avoiding splitting while bending by 1800
aluminium usage in heat exchangers
Aluminium usage in Heat Exchangers
  • Heat exchangers in automotive sector: Engine cooling (radiator), oil cooling, and condensers and evaporators in air conditioning system, heaters, charge air, exhaust gas and fuel cooling / heating
  • Advantage of Aluminium for Heat exchangers
    • High thermal conductivity
    • Reliable manufacturing process (brazing)
    • Excellent corrosion resistance
    • Good formability
    • Adequate strength to resist temperature and pressure cycles
    • Environmentally friendly
    • Commercial availability of a wide range of aluminium alloys and product forms to meet different design options
aluminium usage in heat exchangers contd
Aluminium usage in Heat Exchangers…contd.
  • The majority of the heat exchangers used in today’s automobiles are based on tube / fin designs.
  • Aluminiumheat exchangers for automotive applications are today generally produced by controlled atmosphere brazing (dominating method) and vacuum brazing
  • Input is flat rolled materials, e.g.: Unclad fin stock for radiators, charge air coolers, heaters, etc. and clad fin stock for condensers.
  • Clad header plates and side plates, Clad strip for welded or folded tubes for radiators, charge air cooler, heaters, etc.
  • Clad plates for evaporators and oil coolers
