The tubes with high length to diameter ratio over 100:1 were widely used for spline, weapons, aerospace, screw drill stator of oil and gas drilling components, which are impossible to be machined by conventional techniques. However, electrochemical machining (ECM) has the unique advantages of high efficiency, high surface quality, no stress and no cathode wear in machining difficult-to-cut conductive materials and complicated parts and components. So, we adopted the ECM method to research the key technologies for manufacturing high aspect ratio deep spiral tube in this paper. First of all, we established the ECM cathode model, then through the electrical field simulation to optimize the adduction angle of the cathode teeth with COMSOL software. Secondly, the ECM frock clamps were designed and manufactured, which have the function of the conduction, insulation and sealing. Then, we introduced to develop a 20000A horizontal NC ECM machine tool, which can control the electrolyte temperature between 29°C and 31°C, and can keep 24 hours continuous and stable machining. Finally, through the L9(34) orthogonal array method to carry out our high aspect ratio deep spiral tube electrochemical machining experiment, we obtained the optimal processing parameters. In the condition of 0.1 mm initial machining gap, 10%NaCl electrolyte, 30°C electrolyte temperature, 2.0 Mpa electrolyte pressure, 16 mm/min cathode feed rate we successfully manufactured a 3.5 meters spiral tube with high surface quality in our self-developed machine tool. The simulation results were consistent with the experiment data. The results show that: using the method of electrical field simulation to optimize cathode teeth adduction angle to design cathode can shorten the cathode design cycle and reduce the experiment cost. It indicates that it is a feasible, stable and high-efficiency machining method for ECM to machining these high aspect ratio spiral tubes. © 2016 The Authors. Published by Elsevier B.V.

In recent years, with the development of the researches on aviation, space and energy fields, integral impeller, blisk, shrouded turbine blisk and hooded impeller have been used more and more broadly. The construction of these key parts is complex. Their weight is lighter than before. Their structural strength is enhanced. Their reliability and efficiency are greatly improved. And these parts are made of anti-high temperature and corrosion resistance materials. These characters make it difficult to machine them precisely. In this paper, five-axis EDM equipment is developed to solve this problem. Based on this equipment, the processing techniques of integral impeller, blisk, shrouded turbine blisk and hooded impeller are researched. And the electrodes are designed. The discharge conditions and machining trajectories are optimized. Finally, the eligible work pieces such as shrouded turbine blisk and hooded impeller have been made by using the research result. © 2013 The Authors.

Based on the principles of high melting point, densities, nearly lattice matching and so on, two kinds of three elements rare-earth intermetallic compound of YNi2Si2 and CeCo4B were selected by the self-made superalloy refining agents selection system. Using argon arc welding method, two kinds of rare-earth intermetallic compound were used as the coating material, the superalloy of K4169 was used as substrate, a common molten pool was formed and solidified, macro/micro structure observation found that containing Ce and Y rare-earth intermetallic compounds both have a certain inhibitory effects on the dendritic growth of substrate γ-phase. The experiment of directly pouring the cylindric castings of K4169 superalloy at the temperature 1470 ℃ showed that the average grain sizes were reduced from 3.57 mm without any addition to 0.92 mm with addition of mixed rare-earth refining agents. © 2015, Chinese Rare Earth Society.

A metallic protective coating on the third generation single crystal superalloy was investigated. The coating surface, interface morphology and phase structure of the organization were characterized by scanning electron microscopy(SEM), energy dispersion X-ray spectroscopy (EDS) and X-ray diffraction (XRD). Interdiffusion behavior of coatings and cyclic oxidation kinetics were analyzed. A single NiCoCrAlYHf coating was deposited onto the single crystal superalloy by arc ion plating (AIP). The results showed that an interdiffusion zone (IDZ) were formed in Ni-based single crystal superalloy after 600h heat treatment at 1100°C in the atmospheric environment. The elemental interdiffusion between the coating and the substrate occured as Al diffuse inward from the coating to the substrate and Cr diffuse outward from the substrate to the coating. There were amounts of topologically close-packed phases (TCP) precipitated under coating 60 μm in the superalloy and ultimately came into being secondary reaction zone (SRZ).

The nano-antimony particles with different shape, size and stability are prepared by electrochemical method under the dilute hydrochloric acid electrolyte including the surface dispersant OP-10 and different current densities. The influences of current density on the shape and size of nanometer antimony particles prepared by electrochemical method are analyzed by using X-ray diffraction (XRD), transmission electron microscopy (TEM) and Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy (FT-IR). The results show that nano-antimony powder can be prepared by electrochemical method, and the antimony powder possesses the crystal structure with orthorhombic hexahedron. The current density has a significant impact on the agglomeration, shape and size of antimony powder. The size and shape of antimony powder are determined by the nucleation rate of nano-antimony and combination capacity of antimony ions and OP-10 surface dispersing agents affected by current density. When the current density is 25mA/cm2, the average particle size is 12nm or so, the shape is spherical, and the nano-antimony particles are well dispersed and no agglomeration. © (2011) Trans Tech Publications.
