Unique Manufacturing Method - Back Extruded Aluminum Manifolds for Fuel, Hydraulic and Other Applications 900361

I. ABSTRACTA unique process has been developed for the manufacturing of aluminum manifolds for use in fuel, hydraulic, and various other applications. This process consists of a combination of extrusion, cold forging and back extrusion operations by which a complete manifold is produced requiring little or no machining. The manufacturing process, design criteria and test results will be presented. A review of current and potential manifold applications using this process will conclude this paper.
