The processing technology of titanium alloy forgings is to some extent like kneading noodles.


In 2018, forging factories introduced 10,000 tons of international advanced free forging units. Because the weight of single machine is very large, and the factory building is along the Weihe River, there are great challenges in civil construction and installation of machinery and equipment. Faced with these problems, none of the members of the R&D team backed down. From on-site investigation, design scheme, simulation animation, civil construction, installation and commissioning, with the concerted efforts of all of us, the innovation team broke the outline that debugging of 10,000 tons press takes half a year, and completed the commissioning of the unit in only two months, laying a solid foundation for enterprises to develop new products and expand the military market. Foundation.

"Shaanxi people like to eat noodles, when to add water to knead noodles, how much water to add, how long to knead and so on, these are very important for whether to knead the noodles well. The processing technology of titanium alloy forgings studied by our team is somewhat similar to kneading noodles. If 10,000 tons of free forging press is compared to kneading machine, then the products developed and innovated by science and technology are all kinds of rib-cutting, knife-cutting, bait, rolling skin... On the premise of ensuring cleanliness and hygiene, according to the customer's requirements, we knead out the wide, narrow, thin, thick, long, short and other shapes of noodles, dough and so on. Of course, 10,000 tons of free forging press can be much more complex than kneading machine, the temperature is much higher, the volume is much larger, and 10,000 tons of free forging press kneading "face" is a variety of super-large specifications of titanium rods, forgings and titanium plate. With the help of the 10,000-ton press production line, the innovation team has successively completed the "development of titanium alloy large-scale rods for a certain type of aeroengine", "development of titanium alloy large-scale rods for aircraft structural parts", "development of titanium alloy large-scale rods for commercial engines", "development of titanium alloy super-large-scale rings for marine engineering", "4500 m deep". Research on Forging of Wide and Thick Titanium Slab for Submarine Manned Spherical Shell The team presided over and participated in more than ten national key R&D projects such as the Ministry of Science and Technology and the National Defense Science and Technology Bureau, with a planned expenditure of more than 80 million yuan. Since August 2018, a total of 5519 tons of wide and thick titanium slabs and 2310 tons of large-scale titanium alloy bars have been produced, which has increased the output value of enterprises by 1.1 billion yuan.

Since the founding of the scientific research and innovation team of forging factory, with the help of 10,000 tons forging press production line, the company has greatly improved the processing technology of titanium alloy forgings. The quality of large-scale titanium alloy products has achieved a breakthrough improvement, which meets the development needs of aerospace, marine engineering and other fields in China. Our team's achievements on the road of scientific and technological innovation are based on tenacity and ruthlessness. In the past, experts who came to Baoji from big cities such as Beijing and Shanghai to support the third-line construction have overcome various difficulties and made great contributions to the development of the titanium industry. Our generation should also continue to inherit the spirit of innovation of perseverance and perseverance, with generations of cadres and generations of cadres.
