Contract Awarded for This project is to purchase one set of automatization & Press machines for the hot forming
Ducommun will manufacture these titanium engine support structures using its proprietary hot forming
and super-plastic forming processes at its operation centers in Coxsackie, New York, and Parsons, Kansas.
While the technique of "hot stamping" steel is finding increased application in body-in-white applications (some of the steels are too hard to form otherwise), just as aluminum is making inroads into body engineering-inside and out-it turns out that hot forming
aluminum is being developed.
The investment includes a new Chinese-made press line consisting of 1,600-and 3,500-metric-ton hydraulic presses, which has allowed a phased move from hot forming
to a new high-speed cold forming manufacturing process to offer improved efficiency, product performance and quality advantages.
Looking in turn at principles, steel, and other metals, they discuss such topics as techniques for modeling microstructure in metal forming processes, recrystallization and grain growth in hot working, modeling phase transformations in steel, determining unified constitutive equations for modeling the hot forming
of steel, and aging behavior and microstructure evolution in the processing of aluminum alloys.
JAGTM can significantly increase the productivity of hot forming
operations due to its physical characteristics such as not only de-scaling free after hot forming
but also shortening the holding time at heating and rapid heating by electrical heating etc.
is a technology used to reduce weight in bodyshell construction and reduce emissions in the automotive industry.
A method for manufacturing formed articles by hot pressing or hot forming
of the granulate, without the presence of a formaldehyde-containing adhesive and preferably without the presence of any other type of adhesive.
SPF is a process that enables the creation of more extreme contours and configurations in metal, typically titanium, than conventional hot forming
AHF is a major subcontractor of stretch forming, hot forming
, tooling and CNC routing and machining, supplying hardware to the worldwide aerospace market.
Parsons will report through AHF-Ducommun Incorporated, an existing Ducommun subsidiary, which designs, engineers and manufactures large, complex components using stretch-forming and hot forming
processes and computer-controlled machining in aluminum, titanium and other exotic metals.
Its capabilities include: super plastic hot forming
, high technology welding and brazing, precision machining, mechanical joining, water jet and laser trimming, tool design and fabrication, CATIA/CAD and concurrent engineering.
