Wrought Aluminum Processes and Products
This article introduces the basic characteristics, processes, and product forms associated with the five major categories of aluminum wrought products, namely, flat-rolled products (sheet, plate, and foil); rod, bar, and wire; tubular products; profiles; and forgings. It summarizes the various product forms in which commonly used wrought aluminum alloys are available. The configuration guidelines for ease of tolerance control in aluminum extrusions are presented. The article concludes with a discussion on warm forming and punchless forming methods.
