Heat Treatment and Forming

Hycrome specialize in the generation of aerospace components by routing profiles from aluminum sheet then shaping them by Rubber Press and Brake Press Forming methods to form simple brackets or complex geometry structural parts.

Prior to forming, aluminum can be solution treated to soften the material and make it more ductile which allows the part to be formed into complex shapes with tight bend radii. Once formed the parts are then re-heat treated to precipitation harden back into the design condition for the material.
