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

Objective:
Demonstrate and deploy IQ Technologies in forge shops. Reduce forging cycle times while improving quality. Improve forging properties. Reduce energy requirements in forge.

Solution:
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.

Principal Investigator:
