Analysis and extension of the limits of application in metal forming based recycling of aluminum chips

The direct extrusion of aluminium scrap materials offers a significant improvement for the life cycle of aluminium based materials in contrast to conventional remelting. Based on previous research in the area of compression of different chip shapes, the focus is placed on the relationships between process parameters and material characteristics in terms of qualitative and quantitative description of material and component properties. The opportunities of the process should be developed and the produced material characteristics should be evaluated regarding fatigue, lifetime and corrosion. The aluminum alloy EN AW-6060 is used as specimen material in this project.
