Varmsmidning av aluminiumlegering 6026 T9: Warm forging of aluminum alloy 6026 T9
Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor)Student thesis
In this project forging of aluminum alloy Al 6026 T9 has been performed in the temperature range of 400 °C – 470 °C. The alloy which was in the shape of a cylindrical billet was formed in a press with the aim of analyzing the effect of different forging temperatures and required press load for optimal die filling. The component’s dimensions were later measured and compared to a reference piece. To ease the flow of material a lubricant was used between the billet and the die. This was demonstrated by compressing the billet with and without any lubricant.
The performed experiments show that the lubricant reduces friction and makes it easier for the material to flow into the die. Higher billet temperature than 450 °C is deemed unnecessary as it does not give any significant improvement in filling the die. The experiments also conclude that a press load of at least 280 tons is required for these conditions.
