AMS 2750 pyrometric requirements for heat treatments: what's new in revision F

AMS 2750 (Aerospace Material Specifications) is an aerospace international specification which covers the pyrometric requirements for plants used for the heat treatment of metallic materials. Specifically, it covers temperature sensors, instrumentation, plant equipment, correction factors and offsets of instruments, system accuracy testing and temperature uniformity testing. These are necessary to ensure heat treatment of parts or raw materials in accordance with applicable specifications.

The AMS 2750 is now in revision F, was revision E from July 2012.

Let's see what’s new.

Diffusion bonding of titanium: The Definitive Guide

Advanced engineering components require not only better materials but also new joining or welding processes. Recently, diffusion bonding has become a viable process in the fabrication of structural hardware or fluid and gas flow devices for aerospace and electronic industries. This technology heats and applies pressure on joint materials and uses molecular diffusion to bond them. This means that the resulting joint has properties similar or equal to the parent materials. The process has the ability to produce high quality titanium joints so that neither metallurgical discontinuities nor porosity exist across the interface.
