Superalloys are materials with unique characteristics, not at least with regard to its superb temperature capability and strength in relation to ordinary materials such as stainless steel. Two new superalloys, G27 and VDM780, will investigated in terms of welding and associated heat treatments within the FEAST (Weld feasibility heat treatment studies of new superalloys) project. The main purpose of the project which is run by University West, GKN Aerospace and Brogren Industries is to disclose the process ability and in particular the weldability and associated heat treatments of G27 and VDM 780 in relation to the standard grade Alloy 718 and Waspaloy.
