Process Metallurgy in Production
We start with premium grade aluminum ingot. Material heats are alloyed, filtered, degassed, electromagnetically stirred and continuously cast as cylindrical bar to produce and control the equiaxed grain structure that enables our process. Billets are cut, preheated to induce a thixotropic condition, then injected, turbulence-free, into isothermal dies. The injected material solidifies under high consolidation pressure to yield fully dense, near-net shape, heat-treatable parts with peak mechanical properties and NADCA precision tolerances.
