Comparative Study of the Metallurgical Quality of Primary and Secondary AlSi10MnMg Aluminium Alloys
The use of secondary aluminium is increasingly being promoted in the automotive industry for environmental reasons. The purpose of this study was to demonstrate that it is possible to obtain a recycled AlSi10MnMg(Fe) ...
A novel forming technique to coforge bimetal components into complex geometries
(Elsevier Ltd., 2020)
The novel Near Solidus Forming process has been used to coforge stainless steel 304 to encapsulate a core of 42CrMo4 steel in Stainless 304 in the form of a complex spindle. The forging was achieved with a force of 280 t, ...
Semisolid forging of steel components for automotive industry
(Mondragon Unibertsitatea. Goi Eskola Politeknikoa, 2013)
Nowadays, globalisation enables a rapid uptake of the classical manufacturing and production technologies, thus making it much harder for European companies to compete with low labour costs of emerging countries. In order ...
Preliminary Study on the Capability of the Novel Near Solidus Forming (NSF) Technology to Manufacture Complex Steel Components
(MDPI AG, 2020)
The benefits of the novel Near Solidus Forming (NSF) process has shown previously in its ability to produce steel components with comparable as-forged mechanical properties but with a cost reduction of 10–15%. This study ...
Near Solidus Forming (NSF): Semi-Solid Steel Forming at High Solid Content to Obtain As-Forged Properties
(MDPI AG, 2020)
Near solidus forming (NSF) of steels is a novel process under the umbrella of semi-solid forming technologies midway between classical hot forging and semi-solid technologies. This article presents the work done at Mondragon ...
