Application of Aluminum for Automobile Chassis Parts 910554

Several processes, such as casting, forging, and pressing, were used in the manufacturing of the Honda NSX's aluminum chassis. For casting, a high grade method which utilizes program control of mold temperature was developed and put into practical use. For optimum forging, a selection of cold and hot processes were investigated and a process to save energy during processing was pursued. As a result, an overall weight reduction of approximately 50% was achieved.
