Application of 5251 aviation aluminum forgings
Common forging shapes include but are not limited to the following:
- Flat forgings: used to manufacture large planar components, such as wing and fuselage surfaces.
- Ring forgings: used to manufacture aircraft engine shells, hubs, and gas turbine components.
- Axial forgings: used to manufacture aircraft engine shafts and blades.
- T forgings: used to manufacture corners connecting two components.
- Z forgings: used to manufacture components that need to withstand bidirectional loads, such as struts and suspension parts.
The above are only common forging shapes, and other forging shapes may be used in different application scenarios.
