Forward thinking technologies of the future are becoming available in the here and now, providing new opportunities for greater efficiencies in aluminum manufacturing and applications. One area of innovation is Industry 4.0, which has the power to reshape how companies approach aluminum processing (see articles on pages 10 and 18). Another area of advancement is the implementation of nanotechnology to shift alloy development, enabling stronger, lighter, and more advanced aluminum components (see article on page 22).
