Controlled Expansion Alloy

Controlled Expansion Alloy

Precision alloys with anomalous or controlled thermal expansion properties. Also called thermal expansion alloy. When a general metal or alloy is heated and expands, its expansion increases linearly with the increase of temperature. However, the thermal expansion curve of some alloys has a bending point at a certain temperature, and the thermal expansion coefficient below the bending point is much lower than the normal thermal expansion coefficient above the bending point. This phenomenon is called abnormal thermal expansion characteristics.

What is an expansion alloy

Expansion alloy is a kind of precision alloy with abnormal thermal expansion characteristics, also known as thermal expansion alloy, which is widely used in the fields of electronics industry, precision measuring tools, precision instruments and low temperature engineering. General metals and alloys expand when heated, and the amount of expansion increases linearly with the increase of temperature, but the thermal expansion curve of some alloys has a bending point at a certain temperature, and the thermal expansion coefficient below the bending point is lower than the normal thermal expansion coefficient above the bending point. Much more, this phenomenon is called anomalous thermal expansion characteristics.

Machinability of Low Expansion Alloys

Due to the high nickel content of the low-expansion alloy, the hardenability and hardenability of the steel are improved, and the gas resistance, corrosion resistance and wear resistance of the steel are improved. Through the analysis of the chemical composition, metallographic structure, mechanical and physical properties of the low-expansion alloy, the machinability of the low-expansion alloy is similar to that of the austenitic stainless steel, but it is more difficult to process than the austenitic stainless steel. It mainly has the characteristics of large cutting force, high cutting temperature, and fast tool wear. Therefore, in the process of processing, the low-expansion alloy appears soft, sticky, and has great plasticity, the chip is not easy to break, and the friction between the chip and the front surface is increased. The wear of the tool is aggravated, which not only reduces the durability of the tool, but also reduces the machining accuracy of the workpiece. Therefore, when machining low-expansion alloys, high-performance carbide-coated tools and new machining methods must be used to achieve To make the cutting process go smoothly, as long as the method is correct, the difficult-to-machine low-expansion alloys can be easily machined.

We have a rapid solidification process, which is further optimized on the basis of the spray molding process (also known as spray deposition), which is similar to the atomization pulverization process, which sprays molten, atomized metal onto a rotating substrate , the metal forming process of forming metal ingots or billets. . This process has a high solidification rate and a relative density of over 99.2%. After hot working (forging, rolling, extrusion or HIP), the material is processed into a dense product.

Yes. All AlSi alloys can be machined easily, such as CNC, EDM, wire cutting etc.
