Vacuum Metallurgy

Vacuum metallurgy takes place with melting, shaping, and treating of metals and alloys under reduced pressure that ranges from subatmospheric vacuum pressure to ultra-high vacuum. The process of separating pure metal from mixed metallic particles, alloys, intermetallic and refractory metals by vacuum metallurgy is that the vapor pressures of various metals at the same temperature are different. The metal with high vapor pressure and low boiling point can be separated from the mixed metals through distillation or sublimation. There are three basic reasons for vacuum processing of metals: Elimination of contamination from the processing environment, reducing of the level of impurities in the product, and deposition with a minimum of impurities.

A&J Vacuum Services supplies a full range of vacuum products for the successful application of vacuum metallurgy for clients throughout the world.

Electron Beam Welding

Electron Beam Welding (EBW) is a welding process producing a coalescence of metals with heat from a concentrated beam of high velocity electrons. The EBW process is made possible by the use of vacuum pumps fitted for a vacuum chamber which houses the electron beam gun and the metals to be joined. The kinetic energy is transformed into heat on impact on the metal, instantly vaporizing it to a molten stage. Near 25,000 °C heat is generated in the metal as it is bombarded by a stream of high-velocity electrons. This makes it possible to weld much thicker workpieces than is possible with most other welding processes. As the electron beam from the electron gun is tightly focused, the total heat input is much lower than that of any arc welding process. As a result, the effect of welding on the surrounding material is minimal, and the heat-affected zone is small in comparison. The metals most often welded are the super alloys, the refractory metals, the reactive metals, and the stainless steels.

A&J Vacuum Services sells and services a full range of vacuum pumps for electro-beam welding, serving clients around the world for their EBW vacuum needs.

Tool Coatings

Tool coatings are used to improve hardness and wear resistance of tools. Tool coatings are applied in a high production environment requiring a reliable and robust vacuum solutions.

Diamond-like carbon (DLC) coatings, impart their properties to provide some of the properties of diamond to surfaces of almost any material. Tooling components, such as endmills, drill bits, dies and molds often use DLC. The application of DLC coatings is also used in engines of modern supersport motorcycles, Formula 1 race cars, NASCAR vehicles, and as a coating on hard-disk platters and hard-disk read heads to protect against head crashes.

Physical Vapor Deposition (PVD) machining and tooling coatings are widely used to increase the life and productivity of production cutting tools. PVD coated cutting tools can be run faster reducing cycle times and enabling the production of more components in less time and PVD coatings are resistant to all forms of wear increasing the life of cutting tools reducing tool-changing costs.

Chemical Vapor Deposition (CVD) is an atmospherically controlled process conducted at elevated temperatures in a CVD reactor. Many manufacturing applications use CVD coatings for a wear-resistant coating. These include carbide milling and turning inserts, wear components, certain plastic processing tools, among others. The most common application for CVD coating is in metal-forming tools. CVD coatings provide excellent resistance to the types of wear and galling.

Thermoreactive Diffusion (TD or TRD) is a high temperature coating process for producing metal carbides, typically vanadium carbide. This is a multi-stage coating utilized on the surface of a carbon-containing substrate. Diffusion type bond of TD coatings provide a superb adhesion between the metal carbide layer and the substrate.

A&J Vacuum Services sells and services a full range of vacuum pumps to the exact requirements of these coating applications.
