SMW proprietary closed-die net-shape forging process (10,000 – 15,000 t hydraulic force) ensures the desired metal flow with directional fiber positioning with deeper deformation for optimal grain structure. This results in superior metallurgical characteristics and improved mechanical properties (including strength and fatigue characteristics).
We employ stronger aviation-grade alloys than those commonly used in the industry – so wheel designs can be optimized to be lighter. Our improved version of the 6151 alloy is almost 10% stronger than a standard 6061.
For 20 years, SMW specializes in forged magnesium parts, sized up to 3000 mm. SMW works with top alloys, such as
