What is the Important Step in the Production of Alloy 718

Aluminium buyers in the US physical metal market have held off on new orders amid fears of a recession triggered by rising inflation and supply chain crises.  

Spot aluminium trading on the market has been suspended in recent weeks, according to industry sources, as uncertainty has increased following the outbreak of the conflict between Russia and Ukraine.  Even before the war, the aluminium market was suffering from long waiting times and weak demand.  

For aluminium buyers, recent poor US economic data have been a big factor in delaying purchases.  Data released last month showed that the ISM manufacturing PMI came in at 57.1 in March, below expectations of 59 and down from 58.6 in February, unexpectedly hitting the lowest reading since September 2020.  This was mainly due to a slowdown in new orders and Alloy 718 are expected to increase in the future.

In the aerospace or petrochemical industries, these important industries are related to the national economy and people's livelihood. The trustworthy Inconel718 is always a frequently mentioned term. Indeed, in the process of using the popular Alloy 718, with the progress of industrial technology and the development of urban economy, this alloy material has been applied to more and more industries, playing an increasingly important role.


Several important steps in the production process of Alloy 718

1. Warm up

Cost-effective Alloy 718 workpieces require the most meticulous surface cleaning before and during heating to keep surfaces clean. Alloy 718 alloy will become very brittle if the heating environment contains phosphorus, lead or other low melting point metals. Impurities come from marking paint, chalk, etc. The sulfur content of fuel should be very low. For example, the impurity content of liquefied gas and natural gas will be less than 0.1%, the sulfur content of city gas should be less than 0.25 grams per cubic meter, and the content of petroleum gas will be less than 0.25 grams per cubic meter. Sulphur content below 0.5 percent is the best effect.


2. Grinding

The oxide near the weld of the cost-effective Alloy 718 alloy is more difficult to handle than the stainless steel, so at this time it is necessary to use a fine abrasive belt for grinding, before pickling in a mixed acid of nitric acid and hydrofluoric acid, Also use sandpaper to remove oxides or use a salt bath for reasonable pretreatment.


3. Machining

Machining of reliable Alloy 718 must be carried out after solution treatment, and all aspects must be considered, especially the work hardening of the material, but it is very important that Alloy 718 is more suitable for low surface cutting.
