Properties and Application of 3D Printing Metal Powder TC4
Gold is a high-quality hedge hedging tool, favored by investors. Especially in recent years, with the increasing instability of the world economy, gold has become one of the preferred asset allocations of investors because of its functions of hedging and fighting inflation.
Earlier, the worsening situation in Ukraine sent gold prices soaring to a two-year high of $2,070 an ounce. But gold, along with other commodities, fell back last week as conditions changed and bulls took profits, hitting a low of $1,895 an ounce. As of press time, gold was trading at $1,918 an ounce, down 7.9% from its March 8 peak. Rising gold prices may also have an impact on the 3D printing TC4 powder， prices.
According to China Business News, Goldman Sachs raised its gold price forecast in early March, considering Asian buyers' gold consumption demand, investment demand and central bank gold purchase demand continue to rise. Three -, six - and 12-month targets were raised to $2,300, $2,500 and $2,500 an ounce, respectively, from $1,950, $2,050 and $2,150. The last time all three accelerated was in 2010-11 when gold prices rose nearly 70%.
The World Gold Council has also noted that global gold demand is at its highest level in nearly two years, which is linked to a recovery in consumption and consumer sentiment to combat inflation.
The titanium alloy TC4 material composition is Ti-6Al-4V, which belongs to
the (α+β) type titanium alloy and has excellent comprehensive mechanical
properties. Greater specific strength. The strength of TC4 sb=1.012GPa, the
density g=4.51g/cm3, the particular strength sb/g=23.5, and the particular
strength sb/g of alloy steel is less than 18. Titanium alloy has low thermal
conductivity. The thermal conductivity of the titanium alloy is 1/5 that of iron
and 1/10 that of aluminum. The thermal conductivity of TC4 is l=7.955W/m·K.
Coefficient of linear expansion=8.6*10-6℃(0-100℃), specific heat=0.612j/g·℃.
The modulu of elasticity of titanium alloy is low. The modulus of elasticity of
TC4 is E=110GPa, which is about 1/2 of steel, so it is easy to deform when
titanium alloy is processed. Its Poisson's ratio is 0.34. The surface
modification of TC4 (Ti-6Al-4V) and TA7 (Ti-5Al-2.5Sn) titanium alloys adopts
two implantation schemes. Tests show that after ion implantation of titanium
alloys, the microhardness is increased and significantly reduced. The sliding
friction coefficient is improved, and the wear resistance is effectively
improved. To explore the modification mechanism, X-ray photoelectron
spectroscopy (XPS) analysis was performed on the injected and uninjected
samples, and satisfactory results were obtained.
TC4 titanium alloy is one of the most widely used titanium alloys. It has
high strength and excellent corrosion resistance, but it is challenging to see
seamless titanium tubes made of TC4 in the transparent titanium tube market at
home and abroad. TC4 titanium material is mainly plate material, and TC4 pipe
material on the market is primarily a high-strength thick-walled pipe produced
by hot extrusion or oblique perforation.
The main reason for this situation is the high strength of TC4 titanium alloy
and the difficulty of cold rolling forming. To solve the critical technology of
TC4 seamless tube cold-rolling forming, a series of researches were carried out
jointly by schools and enterprises. For example, the direct cold-rolling forming
process produces high-strength titanium alloy pipes, which not only dramatically
reduce the production cost but also meets the requirements for high-performance
titanium alloy applications.
