The invention relates to ferrous metallurgy, in particular to a heat treatment of titanium alloys.

A method of processing titanium alloys (SU 396427, C 22 F 1/18, 1973), which includes heated and deformed inarea, +- transformation, exposure at this temperature for 1 hour and further cooling. However, this method does not provide a stable mechanical properties of parts.

There is also known a method of processing titanium alloys (SU 324298, C 22 F 1/18, 1972), in which heating is carried out to a temperature of 30...70°C below the temperature of polymorphic transformation, cooling at a speed of 5...30°C in second, followed by aging at 5000...600°C, which provides improved strength properties at room and elevated temperatures while maintaining high plastic properties. The disadvantage of this method is that the heat treatment in such a wide range of cooling rates can lead to the formation of chemical and structural microheterogeneity, which are often unstable with respect to subsequent heatings. The presence of microheterogeneity determines the uniformity of the mechanical properties of the part.

The closest analogue in essential characteristics and purpose is the way multi-processing pseudo-titanium alloys (SU 1740487 A1, C the fir properties of parts.

The proposed method aims to obtain high-quality parts by providing the processing uniformity and stability of the mechanical properties of parts.

The invention consists in the following. In the processing method of blanking of pseudo--titanium alloys, including multi-stage heating and stamping and subsequent cooling, heating under final stamping produce to a temperature below the temperatureturning to exclude this transformation. However, unlike the prototype heat under the final stamping produce to a temperature not lower than 30°C temperaturetransformations and then spend the annealing. A special condition of the phase predpriyatiya has the lowest stability of atoms for both phases. Heat effects on metal and alloy in the temperature range of predpriyatiya leads to maximum diffusion mobility of atoms. In these conditions occur multilevel relaxation processes, which are fixed p the activity.

The invention is illustrated graphics. The table below shows a comparative analysis of the mechanical properties of parts made similar to the SU 396427, the proposed method and the similar SU 324298. In Fig.1, 2 and 3 presents the microstructure of the material parts of titanium alloy VT20, processed, respectively, similar to the SU 396427, the proposed method and the similar SU 324298.

Billet alloy VT20 the same melting temperature of polymorphic transformation T=975°after the preliminary two-stage stamping subjected to the final third forging after heating them to a temperature of 1100 respectively°C, 970°C and 920°C and subsequent cooling. All the stamping was subjected to annealing at a temperature of 880°C, 1 hour. Stamping has been subject to extensive studies of mechanical properties and microstructure. The results of studies of the effect of temperature final stamping on the properties of titanium blanks in the following table and in Fig.1, 2 and 3. As can be seen from the table, the best mechanical properties were observed in preparations exposed final stamping in existencephase close to the temperature predpripravene who ate the strength of such forgings increased by 8-10%, and characteristics of plasticity in 1.5-2 times compared to forgings, deformed as inphase, and-phase, 30...70°C below the temperature of polymorphic transformation. In addition, there is stability, small spread and a smaller dependence of mechanical properties on the direction of testing of forgings, strain in thephase close to the temperature of polymorphicpredpriyatiya.

Heating and deformation of titanium billets in the temperature interval of existencephase close to the temperature polymorphic predpriyatiya(Fig.2) lead to the fact that the apparent grain boundaries of the originalphase is not observed, the structure is characterized by a plastic structure vnutrikabinnoe-phase with the transition to globular, i.e. obrazovannuju strength and ductility of titanium billets.

Heating and deformation of titanium billets in the temperature interval-phase (Fig.1) lead to the formation of lamellar (-transformed) patterns with distinct grains sourcephase borderedphase, andgrains consist of-colonies, which packs-plates, separated layers-phase. This structure defines the lower characteristics and strength and plasticity and significant instability.

Heating and deformation of titanium billets in the temperature interval of existencephase, but 30...70°With lower temperaturestransformation (Fig.3) leads to the escalation thickness-plates and the accumulation of deformation stresses that significantly reduces the strength and ductility of the metal and increases their volatility.

An example of a specific implementation.

Procurement of the same cast from an alloy VT20 in EY 1100-20°With a duration of 75+30 min and subjected to forging. After Stripping defects billet was heated to a temperature of 1000-20°C for 60+20 min and subjected to blanking and stamping. Then blanking stamping was heated to a temperature of 970°C for 40+10 min and subjected to final pressing and cooled in air.

After this stamping was annealed at 850°C for 1 hour to remove residual stresses and subjected to comprehensive studies on mechanical properties and microstructure. The research results are shown in table 2, and Fig.2.

The proposed method in comparison with analogues can improve the tensile strength of 8-10%, the characteristics of plasticity in 1,5-2 times, to reduce the anisotropy of the properties of forgings, depending on the direction of testing and improve the quality of parts.
