    The process of high-pressure sliding (HPS) is a method of severe plastic deformation developed recently for grain refinement of metallic materials under high pressure. The sample for HPS is used with a form of sheet or rod. In this study, an HPS facility with capacities of 500 tonnes for vertical pressing and of 500 and 300 tonnes for horizontal forward and backward pressings, respectively, was newly built and applied for grain refinement of a Mg alloy as AZ61, Al alloys such as Al-Mg-Sc, A2024 and A7075 alloys, a Ti alloy as ASTM-F1295, and a Ni-based superalloy as Inconel 718. Sheet samples with dimensions of 10 to 30 mm width, 100 mm length, and 1 mm thickness were processed at room temperature and ultrafine grains with sizes of ~200 to 300 nm were successfully produced in the alloys. Tensile testing at elevated temperatures confirmed the advent of superplasticity with total elongations of more than 400 pct in all the alloys. It is demonstrated that the HPS can make all the alloys superplastic through processing at room temperature with a form of rectangular sheets.
