Application of Austempered Ductile Iron (ADI) is rapidly increasing as the result of improved ductile iron quality, greater knowledge of the process and its properties, and advancing equipment technologies that have improved the consistency and capabilities of the process. Until recently, the process has been limited, generally, to parts under one ton. Today, a new system has been developed to allow designers to produce Austempered iron and steel parts up to 10 tons in mass and up to 7.5 cubic meters (261 cubic feet) in size.
