The article offers information on the cold forming process of producing aluminium components. It mentions the use of aluminium in a variety of applications because of its qualities such as malleability, light weight and resistant to corrosion, and various ways in which it can be processed including rolling, machining and forming. It states that machining produces precision components but can also produce waste materials, and describes how forming offers greater precision than other methods.
