     Achievements


Since its inception the laboratory has developed and established a number of frontline technologies in the area of metallurgy and material science.  These are categorised as follows:

  • Armour & Ammunition
  • Aerospace
  • Naval Applications
  • Other Functional Applications
The major achievements in each of these categories are given below

Armour & Ammunition

  • Steel and Tungsten heavy alloy FSAPDS (leading to establishment of  HAPP at Tiruchirapally)
  • Jackal steel armour for armoured vehicles and personnel protection
  • Kanchan armour for MBT
  • Light weight armour for airborne vehicles

Aerospace

  • Brake pads for Aircrafts
  • Nickel based superalloys for aeroengine applications
  • Super plastically formed air bottles for aerospace applications
  • High stiffness light weight Aluminium-Lithium alloys and high strength aluminium alloys
  • Thermal barrier coatings
  • Investment casting technology for modern turbojet aerofoil castings
  • Investment cast components for jet fuel starter (JFS) of LCA “Tejas”
  • P/M (HIP stainless steel integral turbine rotor
  • Ultra high strength low alloy steel DMR 1700 for  aerospace applications
  • Near alpha titanium alloy for aerospace applications
  • Titanium aluminides for aerospace application
  • Titanium sponge extraction from indigenous Titanium Tetra-chloride and electrolysis of Magnesium from Magnesium Chloride

Naval Applications

  • HSLA steels for naval structural applications
  • Suspension band assembly for torpedo application
  • Light weight aluminium alloy castings for torpedo applications
