Eural received in 2008 the automotive certification ISO/TS 16949:2009 and recently obtained aerospace certification AS 9100:2009. Eural foundry and our extrusion facilities are based in Italy and equipped with the latest state-of-the-art technologies. We have five presses of which the largest one is 55 meganewtons with inverse extrusion. An ultrasonic test Type I Class A certifies the absolute integrity of each and every billet produced in our foundry. Eural Gnutti R&D laboratories can design and develop new and innovative alloys, such as 6026LF lead free. Eural USA Inc., based in Chicago, was created to better serve the North American market, giving more support for sales and technical aspects. 42 PRODUCTION MACHINING :: JANUARY 2018 6062LF-Lead Free An ecological choice according to ROHS II, ELV, REACH current and future revisions: For many years, the European community has been working on reducing the content of hazardous substances. Actual revisions of RoHS, ELV, REACH directives limit the content of lead to a maximum of 0.4 percent on aluminum alloys. The future trend is to revise this limit with the goal to be lead free. Eural Gnutti has anticipated the future restrictions of such directives, creating the 6026LF by Eural lead free. This alloy is extremely versatile due to its medium to high mechanical properties, with good anodizing, weldability, and forging properties as well as good corrosion resistance. It is suitable for components used in industries such as automotive, electric and valves, hydraulic, pneumatic and defense. This alloy is machinable on high-speed automatic lathes where it provides good chip forming ability. Mechanical Properties UTS ksi YTS ksi A% 54.0 44.0 6
