Blade quality is excellent, but costs are high, greater than $/lb, even though the bulk of the material is assembled by machine. The autoclave high-pressure cure entails an 8-hour cycle time, and both spar and assembly of the trailing and leading edges are separate autoclave cures. Current wind turbine blades are sold for under $10/lb. Turbine blades, made of curved vanes on a central rotating spindle, are everywhere. They whirl in everything from jet engines to wind-and water-power generators. They are even part of refrigeration processes and new tidal facilities that produce electricity. However, turbine blades of all sizes present a difficult challenge to their manufacturers: accurately producing and maintainingContinue. Alloy steels are broken down into two groups: low-alloy steels and high-alloy steels. The difference between the two is somewhat arbitrary: Smith and Hashemi define the difference at %, while Degarmo, et al., define it at %.[1][2] Most commonly, the phrase "alloy steel" refers to low-alloy steels.

Laser Marking on Bearing Steels Lasers are used in the metal working industry for a variety of operations including welding, drilling, cutting, heat treating and marking. This paper will focus on the laser as a marking tool and the resulting effects, both physical and metallurgical, on bearing steels. Metallurgy is a domain of materials science and engineering that studies the physical and chemical behavior of metallic elements, their inter-metallic compounds, and their mixtures, which are called urgy encompasses both the science and the technology of metals; that is, the way in which science is applied to the production of metals, and the engineering of metal components used. The turbine blade, the designed gating system model, and the gating system FEM model as well as their main dimensions are inFigToimprove thecomputationalefficiency, mesh sizes of the pressure and suction sides, turbine blade body, and gating system were set to , , and 2mm, respectively.

Kruml, T. / Polak, J. / Degallaix, S Investigation of local lattice parameter changes in monocrystalline nickel-base turbine blades after service. Macro and microstructural aspects induced by surface fusion with laser in tool steels. Many of the steels used in AM have been tools steels [,,,,,,], studied for specialized repair applications in which high strength and wear resistance is crucial. Tools steels such as M2 and H13 obtain high strengths and hardness due to their propensity to form martensite even at relatively low cooling rates. The blade tip clearance is a parameter of great importance to guarantee the efficiency and safety of the turbine engines. In this article, a laser ranging system designed for blade tip clearance measurement is presented. Multi-mode fiber is utilized for optical transmission to guarantee that enough.

J Mater Sci Lett 5, – (). https Cited by: Selective laser melting (SLM), or, as the industry standard denotes the process, laser sintering, is an additive manufacturing process where metal powder is melted by a laser source layer-wise, forming a solid, dense metallic component.

With the SLM process, near net shape components can be manufactured directly from a CAD by: the surface of the cladding coating.

Serious macro-cracks, pores, and non-melted particles are also clearly seen. After laser re-melting, the surface of the cladding coating becomes smooth, as shown in Figure1b. Pores and non-melted particles are also rarely found.

Cracks are fewer and smaller. Bearing steel microstructures after aircraft gas turbine engine service. Materials Science and Technology: Vol. 30, Advances in structural metallic systems for gas turbines, pp. The turbine blade test parts were manufactured by the selective laser melting (SLM) process using an Inconel powder.

A multidirectional scanning strategy was used during SLM. Hardness as high as HV is achieved near the surface with depths up to μm. A parametric study on the effect of various laser operating parameters such as defocus distance, power, speed and overlapping has been carried out which can be a significant input for designing of laser.

1 Introduction and Motivation Goal of the Study. We present a new methodology for rapid bulk alloy screening combining two metallurgical research fields, namely, Laser Additive Manufacturing (LAM) and combinatorial bulk alloy design. As an example system we investigate different alloy blends of two types of tool steels, a Cr–Mo–V hot working tool steel and a.

The production route of 12% Cr steels for turbine blades is well standardized. It normally consists of melting in electric-arc furnace, elaboration in ladle furnace, vacuum treatment, bottom casting, and lamination. Electro-slag remelting of these alloys is rarely required.

Parts are always heat treated to produce a tempered martensitic structure. the used blades are less susceptible to pitting corrosion than tunusedhe ones.

These results are interpreted as a further qualitative evidence of an evolution of the microstructure leading to the formation of new precipitates.

Steels with carbon concentrations in the range wt% and the total substitutional solute content less than 3 wt%, designed originally for machining tools, have historically dominated the mass market for bearings [ s10, 9].They can be made martensitic by quenching in oil or salt, from a temperature where the material is mostly austenite.

Stainless steels are widely used in chemical, structural and automotive applications due to their high room-temperature mechanical properties, toughness, corrosion resistance and low cost. However, tendency and rise in industrial demands for components to be used at high temperature with good mechanical performance and corrosion resistance limit their usage in many applications and narrow.
