Hip-densification of alloy 718 and ati 718Plus®
Paper in proceedings, 2014
Cast Alloy 718 and ATI 718Plus® have been investigated to disclose their ability to develop Hot Isostatic Pressing (HIP) porosity which may form as a consequence of the casting process. Artificial defects were manufactured in cast Alloy 718 and ATI 718Plus® block and sealed by electron beam welding prior to the HIP treatment which was carried out at three different temperatures, namely; 1120 °C, 1165 °C, and 1190 °C at a pressure of 100 MPa. It was seen that there are no significant difference in the ability to heal pores in between cast Alloy 718 and ATI 718Plus®. No major difference in between the three different temperatures were disclosed whereas the size of the pore seem to have the biggest impact on the ability to heal, which was supported by careful SEM characterization and by simplified calculations considering two different sizes of pores.
