Transmet’s Rapidly Solidified Aluminum Flakes

Jan 08 2014, by Transmet Corp in News & Events

Transmet produced 1,000 lbs of High Strength Alloy Rapidly Solidified Aluminum Flakes. The Rapidly Solidified Flakes provide Nano-Grained structures that provide superior strength properties to aluminum that are impossible to obtain in other manufacturing processes. To convert the flakes into a usable form the flakes were:

  • Consolidated into a billet (see picture 1)
  • Extruded into a rod (see picture 2)
  • Forged into a disc
  • Machined into a proprietary part.
