September 10, 2017The Fraunhofer Institute for Laser Technology ILT, Germany, has developed a new approach that incorporates a green laser for selective laser melting of copper materials.
September 10, 2017EOS, Germany, introduces StainlessSteel 17-4PH IndustryLine, an iron-based metal alloy powder made by a technology that includes a specially developed process parameter for additive manufacturing on the EOS M 290 metal system.
September 06, 2017Bruker AXS, Billerica, Mass., introduces the D8 Discover Plus X-ray diffraction system, which combines the high power of its TXS-HE high-efficiency Turbo X-ray source, with the reliability and accuracy of its high-endurance Atlas goniometer.
September 06, 2017Spirit AeroSystems, Wichita, Kan., has developed a resin transfer molding (RTM) technology that supports the high-volume production of composite aircraft spoilers and other monolithic components and promises to deliver improved quality and significant cost savings.
September 06, 2017Outokumpu Oy, Finland, has received Pratt & Whitney's LCS (laboratory control at source) approval for its stainless steel bar products manufactured at its Richburg mill in South Carolina.
September 06, 2017The U.S. Department of Energy's Ames Laboratory, Iowa, announces that one of its research teams has won an award for the development of a "hot-shot pour tube" technology that can produce titanium powder approximately ten times more efficiently than traditional methods.
August 31, 2017Two novel alumina-forming steels, Kanthal APMT and Nikrothal PM 58, have corrosion resistance based on the formation of an adherent alumina layer.
August 31, 2017Nitrocarburizing in a carrier gas to which (initially solid) urea was added led to a fast growth of the expanded austenite zone. The gaseous decomposition products of urea that develop in the furnace are highly activating, which means that activation and nitrocarburizing are achieved simultaneously.
