Shear Assisted Processing and Extrusion (ShAPE™) is a new approach to the extrusion of high-performance alloys, in which linear and rotational shear are superimposed on the work piece to produce refined microstructures that are not possible through conventional extrusion. Developed at the Pacific Northwest National Laboratory as part of its Solid Phase Processing (SPP) suite of capabilities, ShAPE™ is scalable, and can be used to produce engineering profiles with fewer process steps, and with lower energy input, than conventional methods. This solid phase processing technology also enables the manufacturing of unique metastable materials typically not viable via melt processing. In this talk, we will describe ShAPE™, and provide several examples of how this process has enabled the production of alloys demonstrating extraordinary performance.
