Many factors may affect the mechanical properties of aluminum forgings. Bharat Forge Aluminiumtechnik uses Novelis Flextreme technology to cast forging stock for automotive suspension components. This study involved maximum and minimum allowable settings of parameters in the casting process, forging process and heat treatment. The properties of heat-treated forgings were shown to be effectively robust to variations in the process parameters. Details of the casting, forging and heat treatment are presented.
