New applications for tantalum alloys

Posted by Super User

Tantalum alloy billets can be produced by powder metallurgy process or smelting Process. Powder Metallurgy Process is used for the production of small tantalum alloys products and processing of Blank.

Powder material is made by thermal reduction or tantalum electrolytic method, and vacuum sintering after press forming. Sintering process depends on the product requirements. Common manufacturing methods of tantalum and their alloys ingots is vacuum consumable arc and electron beam melting process. Electron beam melting process is mainly used for the purification of tantalum.

In order to make tantalum alloys further purification or preparation of single crystal, you also can use electron beam zone melting method. There are many new applications for tantalum and tantalum alloys.
