Research Institution
Development of Equal Channel Angular Extrusion (ECAE) protoytpe tooling and processing tehnology for large metallurgical scale and acceptable for typical production floor and ordinary manufacturing environment. Processing of large billets, 250-350 kg, of ultra-fined/nano grain structure suitaable for rolling into comercially sized plate and sheet product. This product is expected to find numerous applications. Further, it is expected that the technology can yield significant"green"benefits by enabling the use of more highly recycled materials in the manufacture of commercial plate and sheet products that can compete with existing product using virgin or lesser recyled material.
