Düsseldorf, Germany, 22-May-2017 — /EuropaWire/ — The engineering and production expertise of Rheinmetall, the Technology Group, is increasingly in demand for electric vehicle projects. KS HUAYU AluTech GmbH, Neckarsulm, Germany, a member of Rheinmetall Automotive, has now booked a major order from a globally operating German carmaker for electric motor housings installed in passenger cars. Worth a total €100 million, the contract will run for seven years. Production start-up of the highly complex aluminum housings is scheduled for as early as mid-2018 at KPSNC Kolbenschmidt Pierburg Shanghai Nonferrous Components in China, another member of Rheinmetall Automotive. The components will be built into various all-electric car models of the OEM. With a range of several hundred kilometers, the vehicles are exclusively destined for the Chinese market. Rheinmetall Automotive’s Neckarsulm location is in charge of developing and supplying the required prototypes for the aluminum housings weighing only around 20 kg. The company which for many decades has specialized in the production of aluminum engine blocks, cylinder heads and structural parts, is using a special low-pressure casting technology for the production of these highly complex castings.

Fatigue tests in terms of high cycle of 10 7 and low cycle of 10 5 at 150°C were carried out for the samples from gravity-casting C14 cylinder heads of AC4B aluminum alloy. The low cycle fatigue strength and high-cycle fatigue strength of AC4B aluminum alloy were presented by non-linear fitting and statistical method. The results show that high-cycle fatigue S-N curves follows second-order exponential decay form, meeting the "limited fatigue limit" condition, while low-cycle fatigue S-N curves is characterized by quadratic form. Low-cycle fatigue strength and high-cycle fatigue strength obtained are consistent by two kinds of ways, which shows that the analysis method is rational and reliable. Fatigue strengths of samples involving the low-cycle and high-cycle both meet the new Sail cars safety and reliability of Shanghai GM.

The fatigue behaviour of A356 cast aluminium alloy under 104 cycles was investigated by a servohydraulic machine at the temperature of 150°C. The specimens for the fully reversible tension compression tests were cut from cylinder head castings of automobile engines. The testing data were treated by S–N curve and the staircase method and the mean values of fatigue property coincided with each other by these two methods, though the data scattered with different casting defects. The fracture surfaces of fatigue specimens were examined by OM, SEM and EDS. It was found that in most of the specimens two or more fatigue crack initiations appeared at a fracture surface. Compared with casting defects such as oxide film, inclusion and blowhole, shrinkage porosity is more detrimental to the fatigue behaviour of aluminium alloy castings. © 2014 W. S. Maney & Son Ltd.

Pouring position and processing parameters including pouring temperature, die temperature and pouring time have important effects on the quality of metallic gravity casting aluminum alloy cylinder head. Through adjusting and optimizing processing parameters, the qualified rate of aluminum alloy cylinder head can be improved in gravity mould casting. MAGMA software was adopted for simulating the casting process of aluminum alloy cylinders in gravity mould casting. By comparing with top gating system and bottom gating system, and three factors to three level orthogonal test for pouring temperature, die temperature and pouring time, the casting processing parameters of aluminum alloy cylinders were optimized. Based on the optimized processing parameters, qualified rate of aluminum alloy cylinder head reaches 98%. ©, 2015, Journal Office of Special Casting and Nonferrous Alloys. All right reserved.

In order to optimize the laser-tungsten inert arc (TIG) welding process of cemented carbide to steel, a novel combined model consisting of circular disk source, line source, and double ellipsoidal TIG heat source was put forward to simulate the deep penetration phenomena and bead profile. In contrast, laser heat source model was validated using macrostructure analysis results. The effects of the circular disk of radius and the material properties on the bead profile were discussed. For mechanism surface formation, surface depression or humps was discussed based on the high-speed photography technique to verify bead profile characterization. The results manifested that in the model, the circular disk radius played a key role in the formation of bead profile. And the penetration coefficient chiefly affected the root of weld and the keyhole formation. During the hybrid welding, the main forces influencing the surface depression or humping were intrinsic stress from coefficient of thermal expansion gradient, surface tension, buoyancy force, stirring action, and shock waves at the end of the keyhole. Before the solidification of the upper part of the melt, the melt was driven by the fluctuated plasma, plumes, or other forces. While the amount of melt filling the back welds metal of keyhole was larger than that caused by plume losses and the shrinkage of weld metal, the humps came into being. © 2010 Springer-Verlag London Limited.

To improve mechanical properties of low pressure casting aluminum alloy wheels, Mg content in A356 aluminum alloy was modified slightly and T6 heat treatment process of A356 alloy was optimized to improve yield strength and elongation. Finally, impact resistance and fatigue resistance of the low pressure casting FA355 aluminum alloy wheel were improved.
