Schuler hot forming aluminiumFollowing successful tests with high-strength alloys, Schuler says it is now developing hot forming of aluminium sheet for serial production.  The company says this newly developed technology for hot forming of aluminium sheet enables the forming of complex shaped parts.

With the aid of specially designed forming dies, Schuler claims it has now succeeded in demonstrating the potential of hot forming technology by producing a range of reference parts. The combination of temperature control and forming technology to achieve the desired part characteristics has been important to the process.
