Effect of Manufacturing Process of Master Alloy Powders on Homogeneity of Sintered Ti-5Al-1Fe by Blended Elemental Powder Metallurgy
TOHO TITANIUM CO., LTD, Chigasaki-City Kanagawa, Japan
To narrow down the candidates of the alloying element powders for Ti-5Al-1Fe products manufactured with BE/PM, two master alloy powders, atomized spherical 5Al-1Fe and crushed-andground polyhedron 5Al-1Fe-4Ti ternary powders, were investigated with emphasizing on homogeneity of alloying elements, Al and Fe, in sintered Ti-5Al-1Fe. Intense Al segregation is recognized in the sintered specimen manufactured using 5Al-1Fe atomized powders, while strong segregation is not observed in the specimen manufactured using 5Al-1Fe-4Ti crushed-and-ground powders. Density of sintered specimen manufactured using 5Al-1Fe atomized powders is lower than that manufactured using 5Al-1Fe-4Ti crushed-and-ground powders. Al segregation and lower sintered density are probably caused by lower density of the powder substance, high flowability of spherical powders and phase constitutions some of which have low melting points. Those factors have to be taken into account to manufacture sintered titanium alloys with high homogeneity by BE/PM.
