What is the Machining Performance of GH4049 (GH49) Nickel-based Alloy
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. Rising gold prices may also have an impact on the Nickel-based Alloy 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.
What is GH4049 (GH49) nickel base alloy?
GH4049 is a nickel-based superalloy, which is an age-hardening alloy. The
corresponding grade is GH49. Its nickel content is about 70%. After the alloy is
remelted by electroslag or vacuum arc, its processing plasticity can be
improved. GH4049 superalloy has good hot and cold working properties. The alloy
has good oxidation resistance below 1000 °C high temperature environment, high
high temperature strength below 950 °C, small notch sensitivity, good oxidation
resistance and fatigue strength. , poor single hot working plasticity
Main processing properties of GH4049 (GH49) nickel-based alloy
Compared with nickel-based alloys of the same kind, GH4049 superalloy has
poor hot working plasticity. It is suitable for making gas turbine working
blades with a working temperature of 850-950 °C. It is mainly used to make
turbine blades for aviation, naval and industrial gas turbines. ,
high-temperature components such as guide vanes, turbine disks, high-pressure
compressor disks and combustion chambers; also used in the manufacture of space
vehicles, rocket engines, nuclear reactors, petrochemical equipment, and coal
conversion and other energy conversion devices.
The nano-surface crystal layer was prepared on the surface of GH4049
nickel-based superalloy by the treatment process. The effects of different
ultrasonic shot peening intensity and shot peening time on its yield strength,
tensile strength and microhardness were analyzed. Residual stress distribution
of the specimen after nanoization. The research results show that the increase
of shot peening time has no direct relationship with the improvement of material
strength, and with the increase of shot peening time, the strength of the
material will decrease due to the damage of the material surface. After
ultrasonic shot peening, the microhardness was significantly improved compared
with that of the untreated specimen, and a compressive stress layer of about
thickness was formed on the surface of the specimen, and the large compressive
stress far exceeded the yield limit of the material.

The Nickel-based Alloy industry has experienced demand expectations driven by the rise and the off-season tired stock driven by the seasonal decline in two rounds of the market. Affected by the COVID-19 epidemic and other factors, inventories of manufacturers continue to accumulate, putting pressure on market sentiment. In addition to off-season factors, the weak trend of Nickel-based Alloy also reflects the market's concern about the epidemic and some other related enterprises' financial situation.
