Inconel Applications

Inconel can be applied across a wide range of applications, including:

  • Seals
  • Combustors
  • High-temperature fasteners
  • Pressure vessels
  • Telecommunication filters
  • Electronic connectors
  • Jet engine parts
  • Exhaust systems
  • Orthopedic implants
  • High exchange tubing
  • Turbocharge rotors
  • Nuclear reactor components
  • Military equipment and artillery
  • Medical devices and surgical tools

One thing that these applications have in common is that they’re used in extreme environments. Without this microstructure, none of these applications would survive.

Frequently Asked Questions

What types of Inconel alloys are suitable for etching?

The most common alloys include Inconel 600, 625, and 718. Various alloys can be used for etching depending on the application.

Can Inconel etching achieve high levels of precision?

Yes. It’s suitable for intricate designs, fine details, and complex patterns. Inconel etching done via photochemical etching is much more precise and safe than electron beam welding. Our tight process controls offer the ability to achieve tolerances as tight as ±0.0005 in.
