Austempered Ductile Iron
A high strength-to-weight material at a component price that is typically 20% less than that of steel. Replaces aluminum in some applications as a weight savings.
A tough, high-strength component that resists embrittlement, this dimensionally repeatable process is typically cost competitive with conventional quench and temper processes.
Carbidic Austempered Ductile Iron
A new treatment using a matrix of ausferrite and carbides to add strength and wear resistance to ductile iron parts, CADI is a premium, engineered iron with longer life, and more wear-resistant than Grade 5 ADI.
With a tough, high-carbon, bainitic case, Carbo-Austempered™ steel components have remarkable impact and high-load, low cycle fatigue strength making them superior to either neutral hardened or carburized steels.
Austempered Gray Iron
AGI offers a material with excellent dampening and wear resistance. Current applications include cylinder liners and bearing collars.
