5454 aluminum alloy production process

The production process of aluminum alloy usually includes the following main steps:

1. Raw material preparation:

Bauxite Ore Mining: The main raw material of aluminum is bauxite ore (bauxite). These ores typically contain aluminum oxide and require mining and crushing processes.

Ore concentrates: Ore concentrates typically undergo processes such as leaching or redox to extract alumina.

2. Production of alumina:

Bayer Process: This is one of the main production methods of alumina. Aluminum oxide is extracted from bauxite ore through an alkaline leach solution, and then aluminum hydroxide is produced through a precipitation and heating process.

Hall-Héroult Process: This is the key process used to prepare aluminum metal. It involves the electrolysis of aluminum hydroxide in an alumina electrolytic cell to produce pure aluminum metal.

3. Production of aluminum alloy:

Aluminum smelting: After aluminum metal is prepared, it can be further purified through smelting and refining processes.

Alloying: Aluminum metal is often alloyed to increase its mechanical properties. This can be achieved by adding other elements to aluminum, such as copper, zinc, magnesium, silicon, etc. The composition and proportions of the alloy depend on the desired final alloy properties.

4. Preparation of aluminum materials:

Casting: Aluminum alloy can be made into parts of various shapes through casting methods, such as die casting, gravity casting, sand casting, etc.

Drawing, forging or extrusion: Aluminum alloys can be prepared from blanks using these methods and then processed into parts of the desired shape.

Rolling: Aluminum alloys can also be prepared into sheets, strips and profiles through the rolling process.

5.Heat treatment:

Age hardening: Aluminum alloys often require age hardening to adjust their hardness and strength.

Annealing: Annealing can reduce internal stress and improve processability.

6. Surface treatment:

Anti-corrosion treatment: The surface of aluminum alloy can be treated with anodizing, electrophoretic coating, spraying or plating to increase corrosion resistance and aesthetics.

7. Testing and quality control:

Various inspections and tests are conducted on the finished product to ensure that it meets quality standards and specifications.

The above are the main steps of the general aluminum alloy production process. The specific processes and methods may vary depending on the manufacturer and the type of aluminum alloy required.

Casting production process and its introduction

The purpose of melting and casting is to produce alloys with satisfactory composition and high purity of melt, so as to create favorable conditions for casting alloys of various shapes.

Melting and casting process steps: batching --- feeding --- melting --- stirring after melting, slag removal --- pre-analysis sampling --- adding alloy to adjust the composition, stirring --- refining --- static Setting——Guide furnace casting.

Hot rolling production process and its introduction

  • 1. Hot rolling generally refers to rolling above the metal recrystallization temperature;
  • 2. During the hot rolling process, the metal has both hardening and softening processes. Due to the influence of deformation speed, as long as the recovery and recrystallization process is too late, there will be a certain work hardening;
  • 3. The recrystallization of the metal after hot rolling is incomplete, that is, the coexistence of recrystallized structure and deformed structure;
  • 4. Hot rolling can improve the processing performance of metals and alloys, reduce or eliminate casting defects.
    • Hot rolling equipment

      Casting and rolling process

      Casting and rolling process: liquid metal, front box (liquid level control), casting and rolling machine (lubrication system, cooling water), shearing machine, coiling machine.

      • 1. The casting and rolling temperature is generally between 680°C and 700°C. The lower the better, the stable casting and rolling line usually stops once a month or more to re-stand. During the production process, it is necessary to strictly control the liquid level of the front tank to prevent low liquid level;
      • 2. Lubrication uses C powder with incomplete combustion of gas for lubrication, which is also one of the reasons for the dirty surface of casting and rolling materials;
      • 3. The production speed is generally between 1.5m/min-2.5m/min;
      • 4. The surface quality of products produced by casting and rolling is generally relatively low, and generally cannot meet products with special physical and chemical performance requirements.
        • Cold rolling production process

          • 1. Cold rolling refers to the rolling production method below the recrystallization temperature;
          • 2. There will be no dynamic recrystallization during the rolling process, and the temperature will rise to the recovery temperature at most, and the cold rolling will appear in a work hardening state, and the work hardening rate will be large;
          • 3. The cold-rolled sheet and strip have high dimensional accuracy, good surface quality, uniform structure and performance, and products in various states can be obtained with heat treatment;
          • 4. Cold rolling can roll out thin strips, but at the same time, it has the disadvantages of high energy consumption for deformation and many processing passes.
            • Casting rolling

              Introduction to finishing production process

              • 1. Finishing is a processing method to make the cold-rolled sheet meet the customer's requirements, or to facilitate the subsequent processing of the product;
              • 2. The finishing equipment can correct the defects produced in the hot rolling and cold rolling production process, such as cracked edge, oily, poor plate shape, residual stress, etc. It needs to ensure that no other defects are brought into the production process;
              • 3. There are various finishing equipments, mainly including cross-cutting, slitting, stretching and straightening, annealing furnace, slitter, etc.
