Technological Offer

The Material Forming technological offer is directed both to materials end-users and semi-product manufacturers.

For the former customers, its wide availability and variety of forming equipments permits to offer R&D projects and services aimed at the development , characterisation and qualification of new conceived products through the exploitation of the most proper forming processes in terms of cost/performance ratio.

As far as the latter customers are concerned, the CSM capabilities are directed at supporting the semi-product manufacturers to develop new materials tailored to best-fit the end-users requirements through the whole determination of the material features in terms of primary mechanical properties and such other technological characteristics as formability.
To pursue that, the CSM can count on a wide set of equipments:
  • Hydroforming of flat and tubular steel and light alloys;
  • Cold and Hot Isostatic Pressing of all sorts of powder materials;
  • Hot Isostatic Pressing Diffusion Bonding of long fibre Metal Matrix Composite;
  • Hot Isostatic Pressing of Discontinuous or Oxides Dispersed Composite;
  • Hot Isostatic Pressing for casting voids annealing;
  • Hot and Cold Pressing of flat steel and light alloys;
  • Vacuum Resin Infusion and Resin Transfer Moulding of Polymeric Matrix Composites;
  • Super Plastic Forging of light alloys;
  • Spray Forming for metallic and ceramic materials;
  • Gas Pressure Sintering for ceramics and ceramics composites;
  • Hot and cold rolling.
The product and semi-product development is also strengthened by modelling activities carried out through a rich set of both commercial and home-made SW tools some of which integrating technological parameters like formability or castability with materials microstructural characteristics, or oxidation surface affinity.
