SMM Network News: recently, in view of the low mechanical properties of traditional ZLD205A long ingots, which can not meet the high-quality requirements of aerospace military castings, Zhengzhou Light Research Alloy Technology Co., Ltd. used high-purity aluminum ingots as raw materials, using hot top mold semi-continuous casting process with good exhaust and slag discharge performance, developed semi-continuous round rods and square rods of ZLD205A aluminum alloy with high purity, high strength and toughness for the first time.

At present, the ZLD205A aluminum alloy on the market is mostly produced by casting ingot machine, due to the poor exhaust performance of this forming method, the liquid aluminum is naturally cooled and solidified in the long strip ingot mold, so the ingot contains more gas inside, and the surface has obvious oxidation slag and looseness; at the same time, after remelting, the tensile test bar is cast, its strength can only meet the performance requirements of the national standard GB/T 1173 music 2013, the performance is unstable and can not easily meet the aviation and aerospace standards.

Zhengzhou Light Research adopts the semi-continuous casting process of hot top mold without metal flow drop, the casting process is stable, the aluminum liquid solidifies sequentially, the structural defects such as non-metallic oxide slag and pores are reduced, the purity of the product is greatly improved, and the pinhole degree reaches grade 1; the upper part of the mold has good thermal insulation, allowing lower casting temperature; the microstructure of the casting bar is fine and uniform, the segregation is small, and the internal quality and mechanical properties of the casting bar are significantly improved. After T6 heat treatment, the tensile strength of ZLD205A alloy reaches 505 to 520 MPA, and the elongation is more than 6%, which can effectively meet the needs of high performance materials in aviation, aerospace, shipbuilding, weapons and other military fields. At present, the company can supply Φ 88.5 × 700mm round rods and 80 × 80 × 720mm square rods. ZLD205A alloy has been successfully tested on the new product parts of many military industrial units, such as AVIC and AVIC.

Science and technology lead the future, innovation changes the world. Zhengzhou Light Research has always been committed to the production of light alloy castings, forgings, strip foils, tube-bar linear wire products and parts that urgently need weight loss in the aerospace field, focusing on R & D and production of high-strength aluminum-lithium alloys, high-performance aluminum alloy, magnesium alloy castings, forgings, refined aluminum alloy ingots and special master alloys for aerospace applications, the company will also continue to create value for customers in the future.
