In this study, the influence of cold rotary swaging on microstructure and mechanical properties of the precipitation-strengthened nickel-based superalloy 718 (Alloy 718) was investigated. The initial stages of work-hardening were characterized by means of microhardness, electron backscatter diffraction (EBSD), and X-ray diffraction (XRD) analyses. Furthermore, attention was devoted to the mechanical behavior at ambient and elevated temperature (550 °C) in uniaxial tension and compression. Rotary swaging to different true strains of maximum φ=0.91 caused a moderate increase of microhardness and enhanced markedly the load-bearing capacity in tension, giving rise to yield strength beyond 2000 MPa. The mechanical strength R$_{ p0.2}$ in tension subsequent to rotary swaging perfectly correlates with increasing dislocation density ρ estimated from XRD in the form of a Taylor-like relationship R$_{ p0.2}$ ∝ $\sqrt{p}$. In compression, transient stress–strain evolution without the occurrence of a clear elastic range and distinct yield phenomenon was observed. Restoration of the elastic range, accompanied by a pronounced increase of microhardness, was obtained by a post-swaging tempering treatment at 600 °C.
