Ford commends ARO’s aluminum welding solution

Over 600 million faultless welds on aluminum F-150 pickup line

ARO USA is proud to announce that Ford Motor Co.’s Dearborn welding improvement team have commended the exceptional quality and reliability of ARO’s aluminum welding solution for its iconic F-150 pickup.

ARO equipment has now laid down around 600 million welds on this, Ford’s top-selling vehicle line.

Ford DSP has produced around 780,000 F-150 Aluminium bed assemblies every year since 2013. Each assembly has an average of 83 welds. ARO’s heavy-duty welding guns and full process controllers were selected for their unique ability to provide “aerospace level” welding process parameters and reliability.

Since then, ARO has supplied 42 Aluminium welding stations to Ford, resulting in an unblemished record with no failed weld quality audits and zero rejections from a welding quality standpoint.

Continuous Reliability

ARO’s equipment, operating continuously under high duty factors, has demonstrated remarkable reliability, meeting the rigorous demands of Ford DSP’s production environment.
