T • Drawing force Ao die Ad • Rolling (Hot or Cold Rolling) (I- beams, rails, sheet & plate) roll A o roll • Extrusion A d Adapted from Fig. 14.2, Callister & Rethwisch 3e. (rods, tubing) (rods, wire, tubing) die MISCELLANEOUS Ao tensile force Die must be well lubricated & clean force container ram billet container die holder extrusion die DucQle metals, e.g. Cu, Al (hot) Ad Metal FabricaQon Methods FORMING CASTING MISCELLANEOUS CASTING - mold is filled with molten metal –  metal melted in furnace, perhaps alloying elements added, then cast in a mold –  common and inexpensive –  gives good producQon of shapes –  weaker products, internal defects –  good opQon for bri]le materials Metal FabricaQon Methods FORMING CASTING MISCELLANEOUS Example: Sand Casting (large parts, e.g., auto engine blocks) Sand Sand molten metal •  What material will withstand T >1600ºC and is inexpensive and easy to mold? •  Answer: sand!!! •  To create mold, pack sand around form (pattern) of desired shape Metal FabricaQon Methods FORMING CASTING Example: Die CasQng - - high volume - - for alloys having low melQng temperatures MISCELLANEOUS Example: ConQnuous CasQng - - simple shapes (e.g., rectangular slabs, cylinders) molten solidified Metal FabricaQon Methods FORMING CASTING POWDER METALLURGY (metals w/low ducQliQes) pressure WELDING (when fabricaQon of one large part is impracQcal) filler metal (melted) base metal (melted) fused base metal heat area contact densify point contact at low T densificaQon by diffusion at higher T MISCELLANEOUS unaffected piece 1 heat- affected zone unaffected piece 2 • Heat- affected zone: (region in which the microstructure has been changed). Adapted from Fig. 14.3, Callister & Rethwisch 3e. (Fig. 14.3 from Iron Cas7ngs Handbook, C.F. Walton and T.J. Opar (Ed.), 1981.) Thermal Processing of Metals ANNEALING: Heat to Tanneal, then cool slowly. • Stress Relief: Reduce stresses resulQng from: - plasQc deformaQon - nonuniform cooling - phase transform. • Spheroidize (steels): Make very soW steels for good machining. Heat just below Teutectoid & hold for 15- 25 h. Types of Annealing • Process Anneal: Negate effects of cold working by (recovery/ recrystallizaQon) • Full Anneal (steels): Make soW steels for good forming. Heat then furnace- cool to obtain coarse pearlite. • Normalize (steels): Deform steel with large grains. Then heat treat to allow recrystallizaQon and formaQon of smaller grains. Based on discussion in Section 14.5, Callister & Rethwisch 3e. Heat Treatment Temperature-Time Paths A a)  Full Annealing P b)  Quenching c)  Tempering (Tempered Martensite) A b) B a) c) Fig. 11.26, Callister & Rethwisch 3e. 9 Ceramic FabricaQon Methods PARTICULATE FORMING GLASS FORMING PRESSING: BLOWING OF GLASS BOTTLES: Gob CEMENTATION Pressing operation Parison mold plates, cheap glasses -- glass formed by application of pressure -- mold is steel with graphite lining FIBER DRAWING: Compressed air Suspended parison Finishing mold wind up Adapted from Fig. 14.18, Callister & Rethwisch 3e. (Fig. 14.18 is adapted from C.J. Phillips Glass: The Miracle Maker, Pi]man Publishing Ltd., London.) Ceramic FabricaQon Methods GLASS FORMING PARTICULATE FORMING CEMENTATION Sheet forming – conQnuous casQng –  sheets are formed by floaQng the molten glass on a pool of molten Qn Adapted from Fig. 14.19, Callister & Rethwisch 3e. Glass Structure • Basic Unit: 4Si0 4 tetrahedron Si 4+ O2 - • Quartz is crystalline SiO2: Glass is noncrystalline (amorphous) • Fused silica is SiO2 to which no impuriQes have been added • Other common glasses contain impurity ions such as Na+, Ca2+, Al3+, and B3+ Na + Si 4+ O2 - (soda glass) Adapted from Fig. 3.41, Callister & Rethwisch 3e. Glass ProperQes Specific volume (1/ρ) vs Temperature (T): • Crystalline materials: Specific volume Liquid (disordered) Supercooled Liquid • Glasses: Glass (amorphous solid) - - do not crystallize Crystalline (i.e., ordered) Tg - - crystallize at melQng temp, Tm - - have abrupt change in spec. vol. at Tm Tm solid T - - change in slope in spec. vol. curve at glass transiQon temperature, Tg - - transparent - no grain boundaries to sca]er light Adapted from Fig. 14.16, Callister & Rethwisch 3e. Heat TreaQng Glass • Annealing: - - removes internal stresses caused by uneven cooling. • Tempering: - - puts surface of glass part into compression - - suppresses growth of cracks from surface scratches. - - sequence: before cooling hot initial cooling at room temp. cooler hot cooler -- Result: surface crack growth is suppressed. compression tension compression Ceramic FabricaQon Methods PARTICULATE FORMING GLASS FORMING CEMENTATION HydroplasQc forming: • Mill (grind) and screen consQtuents: desired parQcle size • Extrude this mass (e.g., into a brick) Ao force container ram billet container die holder extrusion Ad die • Dry and fire the formed piece Adapted from Fig. 14.2 (c), Callister & Rethwisch 3e.
