At the present time, virtually all superalloys used in Soviet gas turbine engines have been electroslag remelted. The use of this process in the United States has been at a virtual standstill since its inception by Hopkins in 1935. This paper will cover recent development effort on the process and what it offers to the industry. The process itself will be described in detail. Included also will be its advantages, both in metalworking and resultant mechanical properties obtained on actual gas turbine engine components fabricated from electroslag remelted superalloys.
