Laser cutting effects on aluminium sheets mechanical properties

In aeronautic field there is always a continuous research, implementation and application of more and more advanced technologies. This leads to the adoption of lasers in the aluminium sheets cutting to create plane external structures as an alternative at the more consolidate mechanical cutting techniques such as the use of punching machines.

Corrosion resistance of sintered duplex stainless steels in the salt fog spray test

This paper presents corrosion resistance results in salt fog spray test of duplex stainless steels obtained through powder metallurgy starting from austenitic X2CrNiMo 17-12-2, martensitic X6Cr13 powders by controlled addition of alloying elements in the right quantity to obtain the chemical composition of the structure similar to biphasic one. In the preparations of mixtures the Schaffler's diagram was taken into consideration. The prepared mixtures of powders have been sintered in a vacuum furnace with argon backfilling.

Mechanical properties and microstructural characteristics of sinter-hardened steels

Purpose: The main goal of this paper was the examination of the role of W addition on properties of two sinterhardened alloys with two different carbon levels. Additionally the influence of sinter-hardening process has been evaluated. Microstructural characteristic and mechanical properties of Ni-Mo steels with increasing amount of tungsten (from 0 to 0.3% wt.) were taken under consideration. Design/methodology/approach: Powder mixes have been compacted at 700MPa and sintered in a vacuum furnace with argon backfilling at 1120°C for 60 minutes.

Computer aided determination of porosity in sintered steels

Purpose: Purpose of this paper was to apply a computer method of open porosity analysis for determination of porosity in sintered Astaloy CrL and CrM powders. Design/methodology/approach: The powders used in the present papier are pre-alloyed iron-base powders containing low amounts of chromium and molybdenum. The amount of graphite which is mixed with the iron-base powder is 0.6% and lubricant is 0.75%.
