Aluminum Forging for Automotive Suspension Parts

When you want to reach excellent mechanical properties with advanced geometries for the automotive suspension or driveline components, it is not an easy thing to meet. However, aluminum forging could be the technology that saves you time and gives you the lightweight aluminium suspension part you need.

Forged aluminium is ideal when your component requires both performance and safety, and light weight for energy efficiency. As a manufacturing process, aluminum forging is probably best suited for the production of components for automobiles, bicycles, motorcycles and aircraft.

Aluminium Forging Competitive for Automotive Suspension Parts

Aluminum is one of the common materials used in drop forging process, where you basically heat and squeeze the aluminum material until the shapes of parts are formed.

Aluminum hot forging is commonly used for manufacturing automotive suspension parts. You get geometrically complex parts with excellent mechanical properties and tight tolerances. It is competitive as a manufacturing process for light-weighting suspension parts for cars.  After forging, both the strength and mechanical properties will get improved, which makes forging a competitive process for automotive suspension parts.

Why suspension parts? Several reasons. One is that suspension parts are generally dimensioned for dynamic fatigue loads. And any adverse surface quality will impact the fatigue lifetime of the suspension. Another reason is that suspension parts forged from aluminium are the lowest-weight suspension parts in industrial scale use, and weight is particularly important in a vehicle’s unsprung mass. Furthermore, they provide better vehicle response, since the inertia of the parts are reduced, and they lessen the noise from the chassis, which gives you a more comfortable ride. Lastly, by using aluminium, the reduced weight helps you save emissions.
