Within the framework of the NRW Research College "Light - Efficient - Mobile", another friction-induced forming process is being researched at LUF in addition to friction spinning. The continuous recycling process enables the direct recycling of rejects from machining. To ensure a continuous process, a wheel driven by a powerful geared motor is used. The material to be recycled in the form of aluminum chips is continuously fed into the rotating groove. A tool insert steadily reduces the cross-sectional area of the groove so that the chips are compressed and reshaped and ultimately extruded through a shaping orifice. Initial investigations have validated the direct and, compared to conventional processes, energy-efficient recycling of aluminum chips into a wire-shaped semi-finished product with good optical and mechanical properties. In the course of further investigations, the influence of changes in the process parameters as well as impurities will be investigated.
