  • Publication number: 20210230726
    Abstract: A method for processing a raw workpiece into a final workpiece is described, wherein the raw workpiece includes a metallic structure including silicon particles dispersed therein. The raw workpiece is fabricated employing an additive manufacturing process, in one embodiment. The method includes heat-treating the raw workpiece to produce an intermediate workpiece, wherein the heat-treating includes subjecting the raw workpiece to a first temperature environment for a time period to produce an intermediate workpiece to form agglomerated silicon particles, wherein the agglomerated silicon particles are disposed on a surface of the raw workpiece. The method further includes removing the agglomerated silicon particles that are disposed on the surface of the intermediate workpiece.

  • Publication number: 20210115545
    Abstract: A method for heat treating an additively manufactured A205 aluminum alloy component (“AM205 component”) to produce a uniform grain distribution within the AM205 component is disclosed. The method includes solution aging the AM205 component at a first temperature for a first time period, wherein the first time period is less than five hours and overaging the AM205 component after the solution aging.
