Aluminium Forgings

Overview

This opportunity entails developing the value chain for the Aluminium downstream business.

Forging is a manufacturing process in which metal is pressed, pounded, or squeezed under great pressure into high-strength parts. This is usually done by heating the metal, but some forgings are produced without heat. Generally, forged components are shaped by either a hammer or a press. Forging by hammer is carried out in a succession of die impressions using repeated blows. In a press, the component is usually hit only once in each die impression.

The three basic types of aluminum alloy forgings are open-die forgings, closed-die forgings, and rolled rings.

In automotive applications, forged components are commonly found at points of shock and stress. Forged automobile components include connecting rods, crankshafts, wheel spindles, axle beams, pistons, gears, and steering arms.

Forgings are also used in helicopters, piston-engine planes, commercial jets, and supersonic military aircraft. Many aircraft are “designed around” forgings and contain more than 450 structural forgings, including hundreds of forged engine parts.

“Forged” is the mark of quality in hand tools and hardware. Pliers, hammers, sledgers, wrenches, garden implements, and surgical tools are always produced through forging.
