The advantages of Aluminum Zirconium alloys

The mechanical and physical characteristics of aluminum can be altered and enhanced by using alloys. Zirconium, for instance, is added to make aluminum alloys thermal-resistant. Or in other words, after the alloy is exposed to high temperatures, it will return to its original condition. More specifically, adding Zirconium to aluminum, inhibits recrystallization and allows grain […]

How a large diameter wire makes a difference

Wire diameter and length can be instrumental in optimizing your cold or hot forming process and logistics. A bigger wire diameter facilitates a bigger end product, easier near net shape or less forming steps. Longer wire lengths enable manufacturers to streamline and increase the continuity of their production processes. This results in less downtime or […]
