Title (EN) METHOD OF MANUFACTURING A METAL MATRIX COMPOSITE COMPONENT BY USE OF A REINFORCEMENT PREFORM
(FR) PROCÉDÉ DE FABRICATION D’UN COMPOSANT COMPOSITE À MATRICE MÉTALLIQUE AU MOYEN D’UNE PRÉFORME DE RENFORCEMENT
Abstract:
(EN) The present invention relates to a method of manufacturing a metal matrix composite component (9). It comprises the use of a container (1) having a first compartment (2) and a second compartment (3) interconnected by a passage (4). A porous reinforcement preform (6) is placed in the first compartment (2), and matrix metal (7) is placed in the second compartment (3). The container (1) is then evacuated and sealed. The container (1) and its content is heated to above a melting temperature of the matrix metal (7) at least until the matrix metal (7) has melted. Then a high pressure P is applied to the outside of the container (1) so that at least the second compartment (3) is deformed to such an extent that melted matrix metal (7) is forced to flow via the passage (4) into the first compartment (2) and to infiltrate the porous reinforcement preform (6). The method may preferably be carried out in a hot isostatic pressure vessel (8). The preform (6) may be made from a ceramic or metal material and is typically made from one or more of the following: nanoparticles, microparticles, fibres, wires and 3D woven structure.
(FR) La présente invention concerne un procédé de fabrication d’un composant composite à matrice métallique (9). Celui-ci comprend l’utilisation d’un récipient (1) ayant un premier compartiment (2) et un deuxième compartiment (3) interconnectés par un passage (4). Une préforme de renforcement poreuse (6) est placée dans le premier compartiment (2), et un métal de matrice (7) est placé dans le deuxième compartiment (3). Le récipient (1) est ensuite évacué et scellé. Le récipient (1) et son contenu sont chauffés au-dessus de la température de fusion du métal de matrice (7) au moins jusqu’à ce que le métal de matrice (7) ait fondu. Ensuite, une pression élevée P est appliquée à l’extérieur du récipient (1) de sorte qu’au moins le deuxième compartiment (3) soit déformé à un degré tel que le métal de matrice fondu (7) soit amené à s’écouler via le passage (4) dans le premier compartiment (2) et à infiltrer la préforme de renforcement poreuse (6). Le procédé peut, de préférence, être conduit dans une cuve à pression isostatique chaude (8). La préforme (6) peut être constituée d’un matériau céramique ou métallique et est typiquement constituée d’un ou plusieurs des éléments suivants : des nanoparticules, des microparticules, des fibres, des fils et une structure tissée 3D.
