TRADITIONAL MANUFACTURE

HIGHER PERFORMANCE, LOWER COST

OxMet uses its ABD® processes to improve the performance and lower the cost of alloy components made by casting, forging, or extrusion, with minimum disruption to existing processes or requirements for new assets.

CASTING

More than 100 tonnes of cast metal components are produced per year.

In high-performance nickel, casting is the leading method of manufacture. But it can also be a limitation. At the extreme edges of high-temperature tolerance, traditional nickel alloys become difficult to cast, and microstructural defects can lower yields to uneconomic levels. OxMet has developed a series of high-performance alloys which cast reliably, and perform in conditions where existing materials fail:

  • Strength: OxMet alloys predicted to perform equivalent/better than leading alloys such as Rene65 in terms of in terms of strength (up to 25% improvement)
  • Manufacturing: Improved ‘workability’ compared to alloys 720Li and TMW-4, more weldable
  • Cost: Optimised usage of expensive alloying elements to enable significant cost reduction

FORMING

New alloys for the oldest form of metal production.

Forming involves a combination of mechanical force, heat, and atmospheric pressure to deform material into the desired shape. Alloys and associated tools are submitted to extreme conditions – high temperatures, high pressure, corrosion. Yields can be low, and equipment needs replacing often. OxMet is tackling these challenges with a variety of alloys designed to be readily formed for a wide range of applications, from superplastic titanium for aerospace wings to palm-size nickel valves designed for automotive.
