About

The overall goal of this project is to optimize a modern low-heat welding process for remanufacturing cast iron cylinder head cores that was developed as part of a prior REMADE project and validate the process for production implementation. The team will then evaluate the process capabilities and the viability of implementation by validating components produced with the production-capable process through industry-standard component validation tests.

Upon completion, this project is expected to reduce primary feedstock by 17,700 metric tons (MMT) of aluminum, reduce energy consumption by 0.4 PJ, and decrease emissions by 27,300 TCO2e.
