The microstructure of austempered ductile iron (ADI) is composed of needle ferrite and carbon-enriched austenite, called ausferrite. ADI has excellent comprehensive mechanical properties, obtained by changing the chemical composition, austenitizing temperature and holding time, and austempering temperature and holding time. A lot of attention has been paid to the production […]

Research and Application of Carbidic Austempered Ductile Iron






Neenah Foundry, a subsidiary of Neenah Enterprises, Neenah, Wis., melts and processes 1,200 tons of iron a day. Producing that kind of volume, the facility depends heavily on its quality control (QC) and quality assurance (QA) processes, specifically MeltLab thermal analysis and the Graphic Statistical Process Control (GSPC) system.MeltLab Systems, […]
