What is rolling? What is the rolling principle?

Rolling is by virtue of the friction of the upper and lower rotating rolls, the metal material is dragged between the rolls, and at the same time rely on the roll to exert pressure for continuous compression deformation, get the required shape of the processing method. In other words, it makes use of the friction between the rolled piece and the roll to attract the rolled piece to the roll for continuous rolling, so that the cross section area of the rolled piece decreases and the length increases.Usually in the rolling process, the two rolls are the main drive, and the diameter is equal, the roller surface circumference speed is the same; The speed of rolled parts is balanced at the roller and the roller. The rolled parts are not affected by any external force except by the roll. The contact friction of the upper and lower roller surfaces is the same, and the deformation along the high direction (i.e. thickness) and wide direction of the rolled section is completely symmetric with the flow of metal particles. The performance of rolled pieces is even. Rolling process is a commonly used process to produce titanium and titanium alloy plates, bars, pipes and profiles, etc.

What is titanium welding? What are the common welding methods?

A method of atomically bonding a titanium workpiece by heating or pressurizing it, or a combination of both, with or without filler material.Titanium and titanium alloy commonly used welding methods are: melt welding, brazing, solid bonding, mechanical bonding, bonding and so on. Among them, melt welding is the most widely used, which can be divided into arc welding, electron beam welding, resistance welding and so on. The most commonly used is emotional gas (mainly hydrogen) protection welding, also known as hydrogen arc welding.The weldability of titanium material depends on the chemical activity and physical properties of the material itself. At room temperature, the surface of titanium has thin and dense oxide film, stable performance. Sharp increase with the increase of temperature, the activity of titanium, when welding temperature higher than 600 ℃, the density of the oxide film was damaged, gas can through the internal diffusion to metal oxide film loose, and hydrogen, oxygen, nitrogen and other elements to produce violent chemical reaction, these elements exist in interstitial impurity in titanium, decreased its welded joint performance especially in plastic. The presence of hydrogen is also often the cause of porosity and cold crack in the weld. See Figure 13-1 for the classification of titanium welding methods.

What is rolling? What is the rolling principle?

Rolling is a processing method that uses the friction force of the upper and lower rotating rollers to drag the metal material into the rolling room, and at the same time relies on the roller to exert continuous compression deformation to obtain the desired shape. In other words, it makes use of the friction between the rolled piece and the roll to induce the rolling piece to be rolled continuously, so that the cross section area of the rolled piece decreases and the length increases.Usually in the rolling process, the two rolls are the main drive, and the diameter is equal, the roller surface circumference speed is the same; The speed of rolled parts is balanced at the silver inlet and the roll outlet. The rolled parts are not affected by any external force except by the roll. The contact friction of the upper and lower roller surfaces is the same, and the deformation along the high direction (i.e. thickness) and wide direction of  the rolled section is completely symmetric with the flow of metal particles. The performance of rolled pieces is even. Rolling process is a common process to produce titanium and titanium alloy plates, bars, pipes and profiles.

What are the mechanical properties of titanium at low temperature?

Titanium and titanium alloys still maintain certain mechanical properties at low and ultra-low temperatures. As the temperature decreases, the strength of titanium and titanium alloys increases, while the ductility gradually decreases. Many annealed titanium alloys have sufficient ductility and fracture toughness at a temperature of 195.5℃. Ti-5al-2.5sn with extremely low interstitial elements can be used at a temperature of 252.7℃. The ratio of notched tensile strength to non-notched tensile strength is 0.95~1.15 at a temperature of 25.7℃.Liquid oxygen, liquid hydrogen and liquid gas are important propellants in missiles and space devices. The low temperature properties of materials used to make cryogenic gas vessels and cryogenic structures are very important. When the microstructure is equiaxed and the content of interstitial elements (oxygen, nitrogen, hydrogen, etc.) is very low, the elongation of titanium alloy is still above 5%. Most titanium alloys have low elongation at -252.7℃, while ti-6Al-4V has elongation as high as 12%.

what are problems and precautions that are easy to get in the cold rolling process of titanium pipe?

Titanium pipes are prone to surface defects, especially internal surface cracks and folds, during the cold rolling process. The mechanical properties of pure titanium largely depend on the content of interstitial elements, especially the oxygen content. The reduced oxygen content material has good plasticity and good processing performance, but this method alone does not eliminate defects such as cracks and folds on the inner surface of the pipe on a large scale, and it is difficult to ensure the strength of the pipe. Therefore, it is necessary to analyze the rolling deformation process of thick-walled pipes with different oxygen content to find out the causes of defects. For titanium, due to the effect of work hardening, there is a positive correlation between the degree of deformation and its strength and hardness. Therefore, studying the microhardness and metallographic structure on the deformed section can indirectly display different parts on the section. The size of the degree of deformation, so as to study and analyze the rolling process. The microstructures near the outer wall and near the inner wall of the titanium tube rolled in each pass. The deformed fibrous structure near the inner wall of the titanium pipe after each pass rolling is finer than that of the outer layer. The hardness value of the inner wall point in the hardness curve during the rolling process is greater than that of the outer wall point, which is basically the same, which also reflects the thick-walled pipe from the side. The phenomenon of uneven deformation along the thickness direction on the cross-section during the deformation process. 1. During the deformation process of thick-walled titanium pipe, the curve, especially the inner hole curve, should be gentle, and the feed amount should be small. 2. From the analysis of the hardness distribution curve, the titanium pipe has uneven deformation along the wall thickness direction during the deformation process, and the increase in oxygen content will make this uneven phenomenon more complicated. In the case of a large deformation rate (35% more) and a low oxygen content, the deformation of the interrupted surface of the thick-walled tube during the rolling process will gradually become uniform. However, when the oxygen content is high, even if the pipe rolling meets the condition of large deformation rate, the deformation on the section is difficult to be uniform.

What should be pay attention to in the process of cutting titanium alloy?

(1) Due to the small elastic modulus of titanium alloy, the workpiece in the process of clamping deformation and stress deformation, will reduce the machining accuracy of the workpiece; Workpiece installation clamping force should not be too large, if necessary, can increase the auxiliary support.(2) If the gas containing cutting fluid is used, the cutting process will decompose and release hydrogen at high temperature, which will be absorbed by titanium to cause hydrogen embrittlement, and may also cause high temperature stress corrosion cracking of titanium alloy.(3) When the chloride in the cutting fluid is used, it may decompose or volatilize toxic gases. Safety protection measures should be taken when using, otherwise it should not be used. After cutting, the parts should be thoroughly cleaned with gas-free cleaning agent in time to remove chlorine residues.(4) It is forbidden to use lead or zinc-based alloy made of work, fixture and titanium alloy contact, copper, tin, pot and their alloys are also prohibited to use.(5) All work, fixtures or other devices in contact with titanium alloy must be clean; Cleaned titanium alloy parts should be protected from grease or fingerprint contamination, which may later cause salt (sodium chloride) stress corrosion.(6) in general, when cutting titanium alloy, there is no danger of ignition, only in the micro cutting, cutting small chips have ignition combustion phenomenon. In order to avoid fire, in addition to pouring a large amount of cutting fluid, but also to prevent chip accumulation on the machine tool, the tool with blunt immediately replace, or reduce the cutting speed, increase the feed to increase chip thickness. In case of fire, talcum powder, limestone powder, dry sand and other fire extinguishing equipment should be used to extinguish the fire. Carbon tetrachloride and carbon dioxide fire extinguishers are strictly prohibited, and watering is not allowed, because water can accelerate the combustion and even lead to hydrogen explosion.

What is the basic principle of titanium cutting?

The general principle of titanium cutting is: low cutting speed, large feed, lubrication,Cooling.(1) the lower cutting speed should be used, generally speaking, should be 50% lower than the cutting speed of steel parts with the same hardness.(2) the use of large feed, in the cutting process do not stop the tool, when the tool to go back through the workpiece should be the first back tool.(3) The cutting edge should be properly and sharp, otherwise the tool is easy to wear.(4) Use sufficient cutting fluid (lubricating coolant) to cool, remove heat from the blade and wash away chips.(5) The use of hard alloy cutter head or high speed steel tool.(6) The use of rigid machinery and tools.

What is non-ferrous metal alloy?

Therefore, tantalum is an extremely versatile functional material.The application of tantalum as an alloying element in steel is still very few. Tantalum has a very high affinity with interstitial atoms such as C and N in steel, and the compounds formed with them are very stable even at high temperatures.Scholars from the Institute of Metal Research of the Chinese Academy of Sciences conducted a preliminary study on the strengthening effect of tantalum on Fe-C-Ta alloys and related mechanisms through mechanical performance testing and OM, SEM, and TEM observations. The research results show that when the tantalum content is increased from 0.027% to 0.059%, the strength of the alloy is greatly improved, and the impact energy of the high tantalum content alloy is reduced by 87J, but it still has better toughness. According to the analysis, the strengthening effect of tantalum in iron-based alloys is represented by solid solution strengthening and precipitation strengthening. After aging for 1h at 600℃ for high tantalum content alloys, its strength and plasticity reach the maximum at the same time, and the best tantalum-containing carbide is obtained. The precipitation strengthening effect.
