Bichamp: Addressing Demand From Superalloys

Bichamp: Addressing Demand From Superalloys

Bichamp Cutting Technology has grown from being a local player in Changsha, Hunan province in China, to a global player with operations stretching across the globe. Here’s one of the latest developments from the company to address the trend towards superalloys.

Bichamp: Addressing Demand From Superalloys

Established in 2003, Bichamp Cutting Technology (Hunan) Co. Ltd is one of the leading manufacturers of high performance bandsaw blades, with products ranging from bi-metal to carbide tipped bandsaw blades, for various industries.

Headquartered in Changsha in Hunan Province, China, the company is present in more than 40 countries through its business partners and appointed distributors, has more than 400 employees across the globe, and is listed at the stock exchange. Fuelled by a modern manufacturing facility utilizing the latest technologies, combined with experience and specialized technical knowledge, Bichamp aims to increase the efficiency and raise the productivity of its customers’ operations through its high-quality blades.

Bichamp’s ISO 9001 certificate represents the foundation of its ongoing activities and objectives to constantly improve its levels of quality, with the goal of improving the experiences of all customers. The company routinely develops and applies training courses designed to improve its customers’ experiences and expectation of the company’s products and services. With Bichamp’s tailored improvement program, every employee has the opportunity to positively impact the company’s reliability and responsiveness in meeting customer needs.

The company’s continuous investments in its facilities, processes and people have enabled it to integrate the best manufacturing and product technology for its customers. This has helped Bichamp to evolve from being a local player in Changsha, Hunan province, to a global player with operations stretching across the globe.

Enabling Maximum Cutting Performance on Nickel Based Alloys

Bichamp: Addressing Demand From Superalloys

In recent years, Bichamp has anticipated the growth in the use of heat resistance super alloys materials such as Inconel, Waspaloy and Hastelloy. The demand for “superalloy” materials due to the rapid change of today’s manufacturing landscape has increased in various industrial segments such as aerospace, oil & gas, and medical industries.

According to a report by market analyst Zhiyan Consulting Group, demand for heat resistant alloys will continue to increase in volume in China over the next few years. In particular, cobalt demand will increase by 6 to 7 percent, and reach 20,000 tons and more by 2024.

In line with this, Bichamp recently developed the CB-X925 Multi-Chip Set Style Carbide tipped band saw blades. Targeted for applications that maximize cutting performance on large solid materials with long chips, the CB-X925 is suitable for superalloys, Ni-based alloys and titanium alloys.

Additive Manufacturing Metals Outlook: Nickel Superalloys

Additive Manufacturing Metals Outlook: Nickel Superalloys

In the metal additive manufacturing (AM) segment, nickel superalloys are becoming one of the most advanced and high value metals amongst all printable metals in 2019. According to a new report by SmarTech Analysis, the nickel powder group of alloys is expected reach $450 million in worldwide sales to users of metal 3D printing technologies by 2027. This growth will be driven by a similar expansion in other popular nickel alloys, which has been seen over the last year within the nickel superalloy subsegment.

Nickel alloys are some of the most widely used materials for applications with an extreme operating environment, making them commonly found in industries and applications in which metal AM techniques are already being explored and applied. This is a net advantage for the development of the nickel AM market, because the historical use of metal AM techniques like laser powder bed fusion have been, for the most part, relegated to high performance, high value components due to the cost structure of the technologies, the report said.

The early R&D in nickel superalloys for aerospace engine components was also successfully ported to other industries where similar turbomachinery applications require performance similar to jet engines, especially in power generation for oil and gas and general energy markets, making materials like Hastelloy some of the most widely printed materials today. More recently, however, nickel materials have begun to gradually creep into other areas of application beyond the areas of turbomachinery and aerospace propulsion systems. SmarTech anticipates that in the near term, nickel alloys will continue to see widespread expansion, especially through the development of printing parameters specific to new commonly used nickel alloys outside of the typical superalloys used today, for alloys such as the Monel family, Invar family, Incoloy family, and various Haynes nickel materials.
