The Aluminum forging process is a method of using a forging machine to apply pressure to a metal blank to plastically deform it to obtain a forged piece with certain mechanical properties, a certain shape and size. One of the two major components of forging (forging and stamping). The Aluminum forging process can eliminate defects such as as-cast looseness caused by metal during smelting, and optimize the microstructure. At the same time, the mechanical properties of the forging are generally better than those of the same material because the complete metal streamline is preserved. Important parts in related machinery with high load and severe working conditions, in addition to rolled plates, profiles or welded parts with simpler shapes, are mostly made of forgings
Specific introduction to the Aluminum forging process
Different forging methods have different Aluminum forging process. Among them, the hot Aluminum forging process is the longest. The general order is:
Forging billet blanking; forging billet heating; roll forging blank preparation; die forging forming; trimming; punching; correction; intermediate inspection, inspecting the size and surface defects of the forging;
Heat treatment of forgings to eliminate forging stress and improve metal cutting performance; cleaning, mainly to remove surface oxide scale; correction; inspection, general forgings are subject to appearance and hardness inspection, important forgings also undergo chemical composition analysis, mechanical properties, residual stress Wait for inspection and non-destructive testing.
