About 3D Printing Nickel Alloy IN718 Powder:
Nickel Alloy IN718 is heat and corrosion-resistant nickel alloy powder.
This kind of precipitation-hardening nickel-chromium alloy is characterized by having good tensile, fatigue, creep and rupture strength at temperatures up to 700 °C (1290 °F).
Nickel Alloy INCONEL alloy 718 is a high-strength, corrosion-resistant nickel-chromium material used at -423° to 1300°F. The age-hardenable alloy can be readily fabricated, even into complex parts. Its welding characteristics, especially its resistance to post-weld cracking, are outstanding.

How is 3D Printing Nickel Alloy IN718 Powder produced?
Inconel718 alloy is a difficult-to-process material in the field of mechanical processing. It needs to go through a series of steps.
The surface of the workpiece must be cleaned before and during the healing process to keep the surface clean. If the heating environment contains sulfur, phosphorus, lead or other low melting point metals, Inconel718 alloy will become brittle. Impurities come from marking paint, chalk, lubricating oil, water, fuel, etc. The sulfur content of fuel should below. For example, the impurity content of liquefied gas and natural gas should be less than 0.1%, the sulfur content of city gas should be less than 0.25g/m3, and the sulfur content of petroleum gas should be less than 0.5%.
The heated electric furnace should have a more accurate temperature control ability, the furnace gas must be neutral or weakly alkaline, and the composition of the furnace gas should be prevented from fluctuating in oxidation and reducibility.
The suitable hot working temperature of Inconel718 alloy is 1120-900℃, and the cooling method can be water quenching or other rapid cooling methods. After hot working, it should be annealed in time to ensure the best performance. The material should be heated to the upper limit of the processing temperature during hot processing. In order to ensure the plasticity during processing, the final processing temperature when the deformation reaches 20% should not be lower than 960°C.
Cold working should be carried out after solution treatment. The work hardening rate of Inconel718 is greater than that of austenitic stainless steel, so the processing equipment should be adjusted accordingly, and there should be an intermediate annealing process during the cold working process.
Different solution treatment and aging treatment processes will result in different material properties. Due to the low diffusion rate of γ” phase, Inconel718 alloy can obtain the best mechanical properties through long-term aging treatment.
The oxide near the weld of the Inconel718 workpiece is more difficult to remove than stainless steel. It needs to be polished with a fine sanding belt. Before pickling in a mixed acid of nitric acid and hydrofluoric acid, the oxide should be removed with sandpaper or a salt bath is required. deal with.
The machining of Inconel718 needs to be carried out after solution treatment, and the work hardening of the material should be considered. Unlike austenitic stainless steel, Inconel718 is suitable for low surface cutting speeds.
The precipitation-hardening type Inconel718 alloy is very suitable for welding and has no tendency to crack after welding. Weldability, ease of processing, and high strength are the major advantages of this material.
Inconel718 is suitable for arc welding, plasma welding, etc. Before welding, the surface of the material should be clean, free of oil, powder, etc., and the bright metal should be polished within 25mm of the weld.
Applications of 3D Printing Nickel Alloy IN718 Powder:
Inconel In718 is our original material for 3D printing and additive manufacturing in this nickel alloy.
In718 has good tensile strength, fatigue resistance and fracture resistance. It has creep resistance at high temperatures up to 700°C. It is easy to weld and has excellent corrosion resistance. In addition, Inconel In718 can be heat treated.
Due to its comprehensive properties, Inconel 718 can be widely used in various applications, such as liquid fuel rockets, rings and casings, various formed sheet metal parts for aircraft and land-based gas turbine engines, cryogenic storage tanks, and fastening Parts and instrument parts.
In718 has excellent heat resistance, so it is very suitable for high-temperature applications, including gas turbine and aerospace applications. Other applications include pumps and measuring probes in energy and process technology.
Storage Condition of IN718 Powder:
Damp reunion will affect IN718 powder dispersion performance and using effects, therefore, IN718 powder should be sealed in vacuum packing and stored in cool and dry room, the IN718 powder can not be exposure to air. In addition, the IN718 powder should be avoided under stress.

At present, international supply chains were shocked, and logistics and transportation efficiency decreases. Geopolitical conflicts further aggravate uncertainties about the European and American economic recovery and the global commodity supply. For this reason, I assume the price of the In718 powder would not decrease significantly in the short term.
