Non-ferrous alloys have been recognized from many industries for their undoubted advantages. Since non-ferrous are much lighter than ferrous ones, they are mainly preferred in configurations where strength is needed, but weight is a factor (e.g. the aerospace industry). As their name reveals they don't contain iron, which guarantees higher resistance to rust and corrosion. And last, but not least non-ferrous metal are not-magnetic and therefore best choice for electronics and wiring.
Setforge provides forged aluminum (1000, 2000, 5000, 6000 and 7000 series) with a diameter up to 450 mm. Our expertise in the forging of light alloys includes further titanium and copper, mainly used in the manufacture of swash plates for automotive air conditioning systems. Setforge also works with nickel-based superalloys, especially designed for components, requiring high temperature and high corrosion resistance. We carry out heat treatments (e.g. T0, T4, T6, T73), finishing operations and tests in our workshops according to applicable specifications.
