Thermo-mechanical Processing

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
