MATERIALS TECHNOLOGY AND ALLOYS
TOMORROW'S SOLUTIONS ARE MADE OF THIS
LEIBER stands for expertise along the whole process chain: from the molten alloy right through to the fitted assembly for all forgeable aluminium alloys. In close cooperation with suppliers, this permits optimum balancing and parameterisation of the entire pouring, extruding, drop forging and heat treatment process.
This is how LEIBER forged pieces are tuned for maximum performance.
Our own proprietary alloys such as AluHigh® and AluXtrem® have enabled us not only to set new standards — we also use them primarily to forge pieces with outstanding properties. The basis of LEIBER brand alloys are the alloys EN AW-6082 and EN AW-6182, which are frequently used in forging.
IT ALL COMES DOWN TO THE BOND
For the mechanical specifications of forged parts made from standard wrought aluminium alloys, the standard EN 586-2 applies. The values listed in this standard can be reliably demonstrated in every forged part at any time. At the LEIBER Group, we also use our own thermomechanical treatments on the forged parts.
The LEIBER Group's preferred materials are:
EN AW- 7075®
For all other wrought aluminium alloys, standard EN 573-3 applies.
The mechanical properties and conditions defined by us are shown in the following table:
