  • Publication number: 20140334968
    Abstract: Thermal fatigue is the predominant mechanism that limits the service life of dies in semi-solid forming of steels since the feedstock to be shaped has a paste-like character. A novel alloy, more resistant to these conditions than any other alloy, has been developed. Eutectic carbides in Stellite alloys are replaced in this novel alloy with molybdenum-rich intermetallic compound particles between dendrites. This novel alloy offers at least 3 times longer service life with respect to Stellite 6 alloy that has been tested under conditions that mimic the steel semi-solid forming process and has been identified as the most suitable. The exceptional performance of the novel alloy is attributed to its outstanding resistance to oxidation and to softening at elevated temperatures and to its cobalt based matrix free from the hard and brittle carbides that have a negative impact on crack growth process.

  • Patent number: 6299703
    Abstract: An article comprising an alloy exhibiting high magnetostriction in relatively low applied magnetic fields is provided, the alloy capable of being formed in a relatively easy manner and having desirable physical properties. The Co—Fe alloy of the invention exhibits a magnetostriction of at least 100×10−6 in a magnetic field less than 400 Oe, advantageously in a magnetic field less than 100 Oe. The alloy is formed by plastically deforming the alloy, e.g., by cold rolling, to a reduction in cross-sectional area of at least 50%, and then heat treating the alloy to induce recrystallization. This combination of plastic deformation and recrystallization was found to provide desirable grain growth and microstructure. The resultant alloy is useful in a variety of device components, including transducers, frequency filters, signal delay lines, and optical fiber grating devices.

  • Patent number: 6039920
    Abstract: A process for making iron, cobalt and/or nickel base alloys containing rhenium. The process involves melting together the components that form the alloys, at least one of the components being a rhenium master alloy having 30 to 70 wt % rhenium, then casting the resultant melt and allowing the melt to solidify. Possible difficulties such as the formation of rhenium heptoxide are avoided by using a master alloy containing (i) rhenium and (ii) iron, cobalt and/or nickel, instead of sintered rhenium as the rhenium source during the melting step.

  • Patent number: 5976715
    Abstract: The invention is embodied in a soft magnetic thin film article comprising an iron--chromium-nitrogen (Fe--Cr--N) based alloy and methods for making such article. The soft magnetic thin film article is formed using an iron--chromium--nitrogen based alloy with tantalum in one embodiment and with at least one of the elements titanium (Ti), zirconium (Zr), hafnium (Hf), vanadium (V), molybdenum (Mo), niobium (Nb) or tungsten (W) in another embodiment. The article is formed such that the alloy has a relatively high saturation magnetization (e.g., greater than approximately 15 kG) and a relatively low coercivity (e.g., less than approximately 2.0 oersteds) in an as-deposited condition or, alternatively, with a very low temperature treatment (e.g., below approximately C.). The inventive films are suitable for use in electromagnetic devices, for example, in microtransformer cores, inductor cores and in magnetic read-write heads.
