Transmet’s Rapidly Solidified Aluminum FlakesJan 08 2014, by News & Events in
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.
