Of all structural metals and alloys, the aluminum alloys are the most readily forged to precise intricate shapes. There are a number of reasons for this: aluminum alloys are ductile; they can be forged with dies heated essentially to the same temperatures as the workpiece; they do not develop scale during heating; and they require lower forging pressures. The specific forging processes are similar, in some ways, for aluminum and steel … and very different in others. Most ...
