TMP refers to advanced metal processing using heat and deformation and can be applied to forming operations including, as examples, forging, rolling and extrusion.
Why Thermomechanical Processing?
- Lower production costs of material and components with enhanced properties
- Facilitate lightweight designs for multiple applications
- Combine with ICME to rapidly scale up laboratory developed processes
- Predict and optimize properties within a single component
