Title: Development and Demonstration of Superplastic Roll Forming Technology for Automotive Components Final Report CRADA No. TC-1087-95-A

Abstract

The Russian Federal Nuclear Center - All Russian Institute of Technical Physics (RFNC-VNIITF) and the Instin·te for Metals 5 1perplasticity Problems (IMSP) have developed a superplastic roll forming technology that is unique worldwide and permits complex axisymmetric components, such as car wheels . and turbine disks, to be formed in one metal forming operation. Current technology for making such components outside Russia requires either casting parts (with subsequent inferior mechanical properties) or forming several components followed by machining and welding operations. The RFNC-VNIITF approach offers the opportunity to manufacture a strong component in one continuous, economical operation. The resulting product could find acceptance in a high volume, highly competitive marketplace.
