Aluminum Forgings AMS-QQA367H AMS-MIL-A-22771 AMS-4132 AMS-4143
Forging is a manufacturing process where metal is pressed, pounded or squeezed under great pressure to produce high-strength parts. Forged aluminum is ideal for applications where performance and safety are critical but a lighter-weight metal is needed for speed or energy efficiency. The forged aluminum wheels on Daytona race cars are a perfect example. There are primarily three types of forging processes: open-die forging, ideal for larger aluminum components; closed-die forging, well-suited for more intricate designs and tighter tolerances; and ring-rolled forging used to create high-strength ring-shaped applications.

Key Features of Forged Components
- High performance and strength
The forging process is used in applications where performance and strength are critical requirements.
Forged components are commonly found at points of stress and shock. Pistons, gears and wheel spindles in high performance automobiles and aircraft are often made from forged aluminum.
- Forged aluminum perfect for aerospace
The challenging and harsh environments in space necessitate structures that are strong and durable, but also lightweight. Forged aluminum’s low density relative to steel makes it an ideal candidate for aerospace applications.
- Tools of the trade
Hammers, presses and upsetters are the basic types of equipment used in the forging process. Hammers can apply a driving force of up to 50,000 pounds where presses can exert a force of up to 50,000 tons. Upsetters are basically a press used horizontally to increases the diameter of a work piece by compressing its length.
- Mark of quality
“Forged” is the mark of quality in hand tools and hardware. Pliers, hammers, wrenches, garden implements and surgical tools are almost always produced through forging.
