Paper Title:
Spin Formability of Al-6061 Aluminum Alloy Pre-Forms Obtained via Liquid Forging
  Abstract

There are growing demands from the precision engineering industries for components that are net or near net shape while striving to reduce material wastage during the manufacturing process. This study investigates the spin formability of liquid forged Al-6061 pre-forms into near net shape cylindrical components with high aspect ratios. The liquid forging process offers very significant materials savings by providing pre-forms for the spin forming process. The end products are near net shape components with very good mechanical properties. Results from this study indicate that liquid forging is able to supply Al-6061 pre-forms, otherwise machined from solid bars, which are sufficiently formable for spin forming. The microstructure of a spin formed liquid forged pre-form is also indiscernible from that of a fully machined pre-form from extruded bar stock. As such, spin forming of liquid forged pre-forms has the potential to reduce material wastage and hence production costs.
