Aluminum Forging Industry Overview

China’s aluminum alloy forging industry has been booming in the past few years. As machining gets more demanding from the aviation, automotive, and high-speed railroads, which need high performance materials, aluminum alloy forgings have become the most common choice due to their light weight, strength, and corrosion resistance. The Chinese aluminum alloy forging industry offers not only the domestic market, but also it has been actively developing its presence in the international market with close cooperative links in the aerospace and motor vehicle industries’ global industries.aluminum forging service 4

Technology Introduction

Technologies of aluminum alloy forging can be divided into two parts, it is open-die forgings as well as closed-die forging. Open-die forging process is commonly chosen for larger volume products with simple shapes and less complex specifications, the process allows cost effective and efficient production. Closed-dye forge is useful in making complex shaped parts which has high accuracy. While the material is shown to be costly, the superior mechanical properties and surface quality are achieved as a result. In the current scenario, high-end forging methods such as precision and isostatic pressing are coming up and are widely used to meet the stringent application requirements.

Product Application Examplesaluminum forging service 1

Aluminum alloy forgings perform from many sectors because of their light weight and high strength that increase performance and safety. This is a major plus from these forged components. Currently, in the aerospace sector, a Chinese company successfully supplies forged aluminum alloy components for the international passenger aircraft that can withstand any extreme environments and provide better fatigue and corrosion resistance capabilities. The auto industry, moving at the pace of increased efficiency and light vehicles, finds the rollers of aluminum alloy in advanced race car wheels as well as structural parts of electric vehicles, resulting in the lower weight and better acceleration, handling and safety. Similarly to the existing energy sector, exceptional energy production is possible in the new energy sector using aluminum alloy forgings in wind turbines and photovoltaic panels’ components, such as turbine blades and photovoltaic panel frames which enhance efficiency and durability as the result, improving sustainability in the process of technological advancement.

Industry Challenges and Opportunities

Right now, the major issues of aluminum alloy forging industry are price volatility of raw materials, the environmental protection standards that are becoming stricter and the international trade that is very unstable. Nonetheless, the wave of global switch towards the energy saving and emission reduction has led to the sustained growth of demand for lightweight, high-strength materials used in new energy vehicles and renewable energy equipment, which create new market opportunities for the aluminum alloy forging sector.aluminum forging service 5

Future Trends Prediction of Aluminum Forging Industry

The forging industry of aluminium alloy is assumed to belong to the technological purist and the quality leader, both within the internal and external markets. Innovative technologies will be applied, for instance, digitalization and automated production on the basis of intelligent manufacturing, which will boost the efficiency of production and the quality of products. While, the enterprises inside the industry would possibly the competitive capacity in international market elevate through the collaboration and technological exchange which is beneficial to them. In addition, the requirements for aluminum alloy forgings are projected to run in concomitance with the fast technological advancement of new energy and aerospace sectors, which is likely to bring in more progress of the industry.
