Paper Title:
Spray Forming and Thermal Processing for High Performance Superalloys
  Abstract

A unique pilot low-pressure spray forming plant was established and its spray atomisation and deposition process developed to study the new processing methods for high performance materials and to develop spray forming technology suitable for making sound superalloy preforms. The results indicated that high density (>99%) preforms (billets and rings) with little gas pick-ups and with the microstructural features of rapidly solidified superalloys, i.e. refined equiaxed grains and uniform microstructure, could be achieved after the optimisation of the spray atomisation and deposition process. The effects of subsequent thermal processing on the density, microstructure and mechanical properties of the spray formed superalloy were investigated. Compared to the turbine disks and rings made by wrought superalloys, the spray formed superalloys with identical chemistry showed significantly improved metallurgical quality, higher mechanical properties, and better hot workability.
