ATI to supply Rolls-Royce nickel-based superalloys

  • 14-Sep-2009 04:54 EDT

Pittsburgh, PA-based Allegheny Technologies Inc. (ATI) signed a 10-year sourcing agreement with Rolls-Royce plc for the supply of nickel-based superalloy disc-quality products for commercial jet engine applications. Under the terms of the agreement, the ATI Allvac business unit will provide nickel-based superalloys to Rolls-Royce’s Tier 1 customers. Potential revenue is estimated to be between $750 million and $1 billion. Construction of ATI’s new titanium and superalloy forging facility in Bakers, NC, is expected to be completed later this year. This facility is expected to enable ATI to achieve ever higher standards to meet the demanding fuel-efficiency requirements of the jet engine market.

Researchers from Purdue University are studying the fundamental mechanisms behind a method that uses electrical fields to enhance ceramics-sintering processing, which could aid R&D of rechargeable lithium-ion batteries and fuel cells. The research also could shed light on a phenomenon called electromigration, which can affect the performance of electronic devices.

Industrial aluminum slabs are typically produced by blending small amounts of copper or manganese in a reservoir of molten aluminum that is rapidly cooled, a process known as direct-chill casting. Variations in the way these elements solidify can yield uneven results that weaken the final product.
