4]V, commercially pure titanium and titanium-aluminum eutectic alloy castings, but nickel-base alloys such as IN 718 also are compatible with the process.
The eutectic alloy composition exercised the most sensitivity to variations in foundry practice, with mold and metal temperatures found to be important, as well as depth of cut and gas level.
Since 1978, some European foundries have used antimony (Sb) to produce a permanently refined Al-Si eutectic alloy for the production of certain automotive castings, including wheels, brake master cylinders, connecting rods, suspension arms and brake calipers.
Abstract: A new process uses nanostructures and eutectic alloys to produce a room-temperature metallic glue with the desirable properties of solder.
However, recent developments have seen the use of metal-carbon eutectic alloys as high-temperature fixed points (HTFPs), the melting temperatures of which are known to be extremely repeatable: to better than 0.
Eutectic alloys harden at a single temperature, which reduces the traditional stresses as parts are built, eliminating the need for anchors.
Among the currently considered compositions, ternary eutectic Sn-Ag-Cu alloys have received a lot of attention due to their reasonable melting temperature (217 [degrees]C), increased strength and a lower wetting angle comparing to binary Sn-Ag eutectic alloys (Madeni et al.
