Abstract

Austempered Ductile Iron (ADI) requires accurate process control regarding temperature and time. In reality however, there is one parameter that is often disregarded. The parameter is transfer time, i.e. time that is used to transfer nodular cast iron from austinizing furnace into salt bath furnace. The aim of the experiment is to investigate the effect of transfer time on the mechanical properties and microstructures of austempered nodular cast iron FCD 450. The FCD 450 was austenized at 900°C for 1 hour, then transferred to a salt bath furnace for austempering process with transfer time variation of 15, 68, and 120 seconds. Austempering was carried out at 316°C for 1 hour. Results showed that longer transfer time tended to decrease the hardness and impact energy of the austempered FCD 450.The tendency rose from the decrease of bainite content due to the longer transfer time as indicated by the microstructures.
