Fabrication of Long Scale Aluminum Foam by Transfer Heat Foaming of Precursor
In this paper, a new attempt of transfer heat foaming was examined on the precursor method to fabricate long scale aluminum foams. In this new method, the induction coil heater was moved along the longitudinal direction of a rod precursor to foam a part of the precursor continuously. Long scale aluminum precursor was successfully foamed by the transfer heat foaming in which heating coil was moved along the precursor to control the temperature of heated part constantly.
