What is Austempered Ductile Iron (ADI)?

Austempered ductile iron castings, or more commonly ADI castings, is a ductile iron casting which is processed by a special heat treatment. The austempering process, with ductile iron’s superior castability, results in a material which can be used to cast complex shapes, with a greater consistency of quality, and often at less cost. The heat treatment requires an interrupted quench, usually into a salt bath, to cool the cast part at a planned rate and long enough to achieve the desired austempered result. The resulting material has a combination of exceptional strength and toughness, meeting and often exceeding those of alloy steels.


What are some Benefits of Austempered Ductile Iron Castings?

Up to 40% less cost than hardened steel forgings.

Lower operating noise levels.

10% less weight than steel.

Better wear than case hardened steel.

Excellent resistance to crack propagation.

Good impact strength to -120ºF.

Work hardening.


Austempered Ductile Iron Castings Properties

ADI is a group of materials whose mechanical properties can be varied over a wide range by a suitable choice of heat treatment. A high austempering temperature, 750F (400°C), produces ADI with high ductility, a yield strength in the range of 500 MPa with good fatigue and impact strength. These grades of ADI also respond well to a surface strain transformation which greatly increases their bending fatigue strength. A lower transformation temperature, 500F (260°C), results in ADI with very high yield strength (1400 MPa (200 MPa)), high hardness, excellent wear resistance and contact fatigue strength. This high strength ADI has lower fatigue strength as-austempered but it can be greatly improved with the proper rolling or grinding process. Thus, through relatively simple control of the austempering conditions, ADI can be given a range of properties unequaled by any other material. Small amounts of alloying elements such as nickel, copper and molybdenum are used to produce the desired heat treated result.

Is Machining of Austempered Ductile Iron Difficult?

Machining of A.D.I. is generally speaking, possible, using normal machining techniques. Only the tapping of small diameter holes (especially dead end) and scraping of the softest type is very difficult due to work hardening. It is however common practice to machine to near final size and then heat treat. This is possible because the heat treatment is considered “soft”, and the consequent volume changes are small, and predictable with volume expansion of between only 0.2% – 0.4%.
