Hot Isostatic Pressing in the Automotive Industry: Case study of Cast Aluminum Alloys for Rims of Car Wheels
Anders Eklund, Magnus Ahlforsdownload PDF
Abstract. Cast aluminum alloys are good candidates for weight saving in many industries, i.e automotive, aerospace, sporting goods and other high-performance application. When HIPing of aluminum alloys is performed the fatigue properties of the casting is greatly improved. That is especially true for rims of car wheels that suffer from high porosity and high scrap rates. After HIP, zero porosity is found and scrap rates drop with 50-90%.
