Custom Aluminum Forgings
Forged aluminum components use lightweight properties with high strength, providing an attractive appearance and relatively low cost. These forged aluminum parts are generally used in applications where the high integrity of the part is of utmost importance. Aluminum forging is used primarily to produce structural components such as the intake (front end) of gas turbine engines. It is ideal for applications where its lightweight properties benefit the overall function of the application.
Deeco Metals produces forged aluminum parts that meet your requirements and exceed your expectations. We specialize in high-volume production runs, with customization options for unique shaped aluminum machined forgings. From high-precision, functional parts to decorative elements, Deeco Metals can produce most any forged aluminum part you can imagine.
Forged Aluminum vs Other Metals
- Aluminum exhibits an exceptional strength-to-weight ratio, forged and heat-treated aluminum parts provide strength and other mechanical properties similar to many grades of steel, at a fraction of the weight.
- Aluminum forgings can be hot and/or cold worked to further improve the material’s static and fatigue strengths far above typical values.
- Forged aluminum parts also exhibit natural corrosion resistance that steel and other metals and alloys do not. Combined with its other beneficial properties, this makes aluminum the perfect material for precision parts in high-performance applications.
Aluminum Part Forging and Finishing Services
Deeco Metals uses proven forging processes to produce parts that match our customers’ exact requirements. Our design engineers will work with you, as needed, to optimize your designs for faster and more efficient production, without sacrificing part performance.
We provide a full complement of post-forging processes to add further value to forged aluminum parts. To prepare custom forged aluminum parts for secondary machining and assembly, Deeco Metals’ plants have in-house heat treating capabilities. We offer a variety of surface finishing processes including chemical, vibratory, and shot-blast. Additional services such as anodizing, painting, powder coating, polishing, design assistance, and more, are available to give more complete parts at a lower cost.
We offer full technical support, warehousing, assembly services, and more. Deeco Metals is a true one-stop-shop for forged aluminum parts.
