Description

Machined Inconel is a superalloy composed primarily of nickel, chromium, and iron. It is a high-strength material that exhibits excellent resistance to high temperatures, corrosion, and oxidation. Due to its unique properties, Inconel is widely used in the aerospace and medical equipment industries.

Inconel can be produced in different grades tailored to specific applications and environments. Machining Inconel can be challenging due to its strength and hardness, but it can be achieved through high-speed machining techniques and specialized cutting tools.

Inconel is used in high-end applications such as aircraft engines, gas turbine components, nuclear reactors, and chemical processing systems. It is also used in the medical industry for implants and surgical instruments due to its biocompatibility and corrosion resistance.

Why should you choose machined Inconel for your project?

Machined Inconel is a high-performance superalloy known for its high strength, excellent temperature resistance, and exceptional corrosion resistance. When it comes to Inconel, it offers superior dimensional stability and reliable performance in harsh environments, making it an excellent choice for projects that require the ability to withstand high temperatures and extreme conditions.

Inconel is also known for its resistance to oxidation and scaling, which helps to maintain its performance and appearance over time. Its thermal stability makes it an excellent choice for high-temperature applications, such as turbine engines, heat exchangers, and chemical processing equipment.

Finishes for machined Inconel

Due to machined Inconel’s hardness and toughness, it can pose challenges when it comes to machining. Once machining is complete, various finishes can be applied to fortify Inconel’s impressive characteristics further. Electropolishing, for instance, can create an incredibly smooth surface that improves overall corrosion resistance. Passivation helps increase Inconel’s opposition to further corrosion, as well as to wear and tear. Coating, on the other hand, provides an additional protective layer against external factors. Anodizing is another option, offering a wide range of benefits, such as added corrosion resistance, increased durability, and improved decorative appeal. Finally, bead blasting can create a uniform texture on the surface of Inconel, improving its overall look and feel.
