Aluminum is our passion. And our knowledge! Benefit from our knowledge.
Many information can be found in aluminum-manual, which is being completely revised and will soon be available. In the meantime, please use our glossary for useful word explanations.
- Weld crack propensity
Propensity of a material to compensate the thermal stresses caused by the welding process through the formation of cracks.
Fusion of components under application of heat or pressure.
- Wire casting roll
Combination of processes in which an endless strand solidifies in a casting wheel and is subsequently rolled by three rolling mills into an endless wire.
- Wöhler curve
Graph that describes the fatigue strength of material.
- Work hardening
Strengthening of a metal by plastic deformation due to dislocation movements and dislocation generation in the cold forming process.
- Wrought alloy
Alloy, which is intended mainly for the production of semi-finished products through hot and cold forming.
