    Shear extrusion is a forming process which is based on combined backward cup-forward rod extrusion. This extrusion process is attractive due its potential to achieve severe plastic deformation thus enabling texture and microstructural control of materials. Furthermore, the economic potential of shear extrusion for mass production and production of complex shapes provides for numerous applications in automotive, transportation, aero-space and other industries. However, a trending challenge in the use of this method for complex shapes is the design and selection of tools to achieve a high quality product. This paper focuses on deep study of shear extrusion of AA-6063. The process was studied experimentally using variables which affect the forming load as well as the quality of the product. It is concluded from the load-displacement and stress plots that a punch with large diameter and s.. Read More»
