To avoid the phenomenon of abnormal grain coarsening, and increase the Young’s modulus of forgings, an infrared heat treatment was used on different mass forgings and compared with the results of an air furnace heat treatment. This work focused on the effects of microstructural evolution and the mechanical properties of two different mass 6082 real forgings. The experimental results show that infrared heat treatment can effectively reduce the mass effect after heat treatment, inhibit the coarse grains formed, and keep the non-equiaxed grains along the metal flows, thus significantly improving the ductility of the material. In addition, the rapid heating characteristic of infrared can effectively shorten the duration of heat treatment and greatly enhance the Young’s modulus and the vibration resistance of 6082 entity forgings.
