Description: This lecture offers an example of product development. It imparts knowledge about rolling aluminium; deep-drawing aluminium; welding aluminium (MIG and TIG) and?choice of alloy - rolling/deep-drawing/welding. It provides insight into how to develop a product using the general specifications and the interaction between form, material and processing chain; the importance of being thoroughly familiar with the different design materials, their processing possibilities and properties. The lecture is recommended for those situations, where a brief, general background information about aluminium is needed as an introduction of other subject areas of aluminium application technologies. This lecture is part of the self-contained course "Aluminium in Product Development", which is treated under TALAT lectures 2101 and 2102.
