Types, properties, uses and manufacturing techniques

Linked below is a comprehensive range of presentations that explore different metal forming techniques.

 

In addition there is also an accademic paper linked at the bottom of the page that explores mechanical, electrical, thermal and environmental properties of engineering materials.

 

Casting, rolling, forming, extrusion and forging is covered in the latter part of the document.
