Fabrication and Heat Treatment

Machinability

Super alloy Nicrofer 5120 CoTi can be machined using the common processes applied to iron based alloys. This alloy does work-harden during machining and displays higher strength and "gumminess" unlike steels. It is recommended that heavy duty machining equipment and tooling should be used to reduce chatter or work-hardening of the alloy.

High quality water-based coolants should be used during the machining operations. Carbide tools and high-speed tools can be used for the machining operations.

Forming

Super alloy Nicrofer 5120 CoTi can be formed using any of the conventional methods.

Welding

Welding of super alloy Nicrofer 5120 CoTi can be performed using all the traditional welding methods. Matching alloy filler metal should be used. In case that is not available, it is advised that the nearest alloy closest to the chemical composition be used.

Hot Working

Hot working can be performed in the temperature range of 1149-954°C (2100-1750°F).

Forging

Forging can be performed at temperatures in the range of 1149-926°C (2100-1700°F).

Cold Working

Nicrofer 5120 CoTi can be cold formed using all the standard tools.

Annealing

Nicrofer 5120 CoTi can be annealed at 1149°C (2100°F) and rapidly air cooled and water quenched.

Hardening

Super alloy Nicrofer 5120 CoTi hardens by cold working and aging heat treatment.

Applications

Nicrofer 5120 CoTi is mainly used in high-temperature services as listed below:

  • Aircraft and industrial gas turbines
  • Combustion chambers
  • Exhaust cones and rings.
