Cadillac Uses State Of The Art Manufacturing Technique To Build CT6

Written By:

Cadillac will use the auto industry's most comprehensive and advanced mixed-material manufacturing techniques to build the all new CT6 luxury sedan, allowing creation of a top-of-range large luxury sedan with the agility and efficiency of a smaller vehicle.

The CT6, would go on sale in the fourth quarter of 2015. It will be built at the assembly plant located in Hamtramck, Detroit, using a unique combination of joining techniques, a first for any General Motors' model.

A new body shop with new tooling and advanced technologies - including 205 robots - has been added to the plant. The fully automated, roughly 138,000-square-foot shop is dedicated to the manufacturing of the high-end luxury sedan.

When it launches, the CT6 will expand the Cadillac range rather than replacing a current product. Positioned above the CTO and XTS product lines, the CT6 aims to join the elite group of top-class large luxury cars.

Material joining techniques prominent in the body construction of the CT6 include:

  • Patented Aluminum Spot Welding Technology
  • Aluminum Laser Welding, which creates a seamless joining of exterior panels
  • Self-Piercing Rivets, which are able to join different types of materials together with a clean appearance
  • Flow Drill Screws, which are able to join different types or materials and used in conjunction with adhesive
