These are some of the advantages of Aluminum Forging process, developed in Aleaciones Estampadas S.A. – AESA for the manufacture of aluminium parts for Automotive, Railway, Valves, Electrical Appliances, and other industrial sectors, versus Aluminium Casting parts:
- Superior mechanical properties (improved with Heat Treatment (2xxx, 6xxx, 7xxx seires)
- High fatigue strength. Preservation of mechanical properties over long time in very demanding conditions.
- High corrosion resistance alloys (5xxx series)
- Several surface finishings only reachable through forging process: Anodizing, Chrome plating, Polishing, Shot-blasting, Tribological coatings, ceramic coatings, etc.
