A test sample for an extruded aluminum crashbox used in the front or rear crush zone of an automobile bumper system. The extruded part shown underwent a crush test, showing a folding pattern for optimum energy absorption, so that the part absorbs the energy of a crash rather then the driver—an important safety feature in vehicle design. Crash protection is just one of the features that aluminum extrusions can offer autos today. See article on “Optimizing Automotive Design with Aluminum Extrusions” beginning on page 10.
