  • Patent number: 10974319
    Abstract: In a casting device, positions of discharge ends discharging cooling gas, of respective gas supply nozzles are adjusted in response to movement of a mold. This makes it possible to stably achieve high cooling performance for the mold by blowing of the cooling gas. To adjust the positions of the respective discharge ends, the gas supply nozzles are advanced or retreated, or are expanded or contracted. Further, a cooling chamber may include a radiation cooling portion that cools the mold by radiation, and the radiation cooling portion is disposed below the gas supply nozzles that are provided directly below a heat shielding body partitioning a heating chamber and the cooling chamber.

  • Publication number: 20190168327
    Abstract: A method for producing a turbine blade includes performing brazing treatment, performing annealing, and subjecting a base material to solutionizing treatment. In the brazing treatment, a brazing material is welded to be joined to the base material of a turbine blade by operating a heater to perform heating at a first temperature under a state in which the base material having the brazing material arranged thereon is placed in a predetermined heating furnace including the heater. In annealing, the base material is cooled by stopping the heater and lowering a furnace internal temperature after the brazing treatment. In the solutionizing treatment, ductility of the base material is improved through heating at a second temperature lower than the first temperature after the annealing.

  • Publication number: 20190084038
    Abstract: In the casting device according to the present invention, when a mold varied in outer size depending on a position passes through a heat shielding portion between a heating chamber and a cooling chamber, a flexible portion of a heat shielding body is bent to fit an outer size of the mold. Accordingly, it is possible to minimize a gap between a wall surface of the mold and the heat shielding body and to effectively perform heat shield between the heating chamber and the cooling chamber. This prevents deterioration of cooling performance inside the cooling chamber to improve temperature gradient of a casting. As a result, it is possible to improve strength of a produced casting. Further, it is possible to reduce an amount of energy wastefully emitted to the cooling chamber, of energy emitted from a heater. This makes it possible to improve energy efficiency.
