Aluminum is well-suited to several forging techniques and applications as it is light in weight, corrosion resistant, and extremely durable. It also has the capability to acquire its own anticorrosion mechanism to hold up against the environment by creating a seal so the metal does not oxidize when exposed to air. Scot Forge has the capability to forge aluminum to your specific requirements. From creating rings, discs and blanks to complex forged shapes, to semi-closed dies, our metal forging technology creates forged aluminum products that perform as promised.
Often, requested forged aluminum parts do not follow common standards but are made to fit customer requirements. Scot Forge will work according to customers’ property requirements and forging needs. While Aluminum is usually forged to meet customer specifications, Scot Forge does also offer aluminum forgings in the following common alloys:
Because of its strength, forged aluminum is ideal for applications where performance and safety are of high priority as it can endure intense conditions for a wide variety of industries. Industries that commonly use aluminum forgings include Aerospace and Defense, Marine, Commercial and Military Aviation, Transportation. The Aerospace industry will use forged aluminum for its high strength to weight ratio. Aluminum is very low weight and low density and has excellent thermal conductivity. Beyond the advantages of strength and weight, forged aluminum also provides great toughness, fatigue resistance, general and stress corrosion resistance, and cryogenic properties. Aluminum is a lighter weight metal alloy for use in aircraft and space craft. Its surface finish and design flexibility make aluminum forging an excellent option for a variety of components.
Scot Forge metallurgists, forge engineers and sales engineers can partner with your team to give advice on the following manufacturing practices for proprietary aluminum work:
