The Potentiality of Micro-Scaled Multi-Filament Wire Forming Using Repetitive Hydrostatic Extrusion Process


Article Preview

Multi-filament fabrication process using repetitive hydrostatic extrusion of Cu/Al at high temperature was conducted to obtain micro-scaled Aluminum wires. In the process an aluminum rod claded with a copper tube was extruded repetitively three times where a number of the single extruded rods were bundled together and subjected to hydrostatic extrusion to obtain multi-filament wire bundle. Aafter final bundle extrusion the diameter of the aluminum rod was effectively reduced from 33.6 mm to 30μm.
