Paper Title:
Qualification of an Investment Casting Process for Production of Titanium Aluminide Components for Aerospace and Automotive Applications
  Abstract

Over the past years significant efforts were dedicated to developing production processes for aerospace and automotive parts from light weight titanium aluminides. Considerable progress was achieved worldwide in the field of near net shape casting. Access has developed an own production route, based on centrifugal investment casting. Various components from TiAl-based alloys, including turbocharger wheels and stator vanes were successfully cast and supplied for engine tests. A newly developed automated centrifugal casting line was recently taken into operation. This presentation will describe our activities that aimed to qualify the casting line for series production of turbocharger wheels: apart from basic issues of casting cluster design, process control and quality inspection we will discuss the casting process from the perspective of its techno-economic characteristics
