Improved Forging Manufacture
Intensive quenching is a revolutionary quenching technology that yields improved mechanical properties, reduces residual stresses, and improves overall forging quality. It enables substitution of low-cost alloys for higher cost alloys, which in turn would yield DLA significant cost savings.
Project: Forging Process Improvement Using Intensive Quenching
Demonstrate and deploy IQ Technologies in forge shops. Reduce forging cycle times while improving quality. Improve forging properties. Reduce energy requirements in forge.
Invoke IQ Technology which is a controlled, water deluge designed to strip away vapor bubbles on the surface of a part, extract heat, and reduce the probability of distortion or cracking.
