April 11, 2019Researchers from the University of Manchester in England, and Central South University in China, announce that they have developed a carbide coating in which powders of zirconium, boron, and titanium are infused into a carbon composite, producing a coating that can withstand the high temperatures of aircraft structures flying at over five times the speed of sound.
April 10, 2019Previous studies showed that niobium can largely increase martensitic transformation stresses, stiffness, and radiopacity of NiTi alloys, which are highly demanded by many medical applications.
April 09, 2019Saint-Gobain Coating Solutions, Amherst, N.Y., announces the appointment of Tim Vitorino, a member of the ASM Thermal Spray Society, to the position of Product Manager for Thermal Spray Powders.
April 08, 2019Saarland University, Germany, reports that a team of its researchers has prototyped a heating/cooling system that first stresses and then releases Nitinol wires to create heated and cooled air at twice the efficiency of a heat pump.
April 08, 2019Nickel-rich NiTiHf alloys have recently been investigated to achieve higher transformation temperatures and open new application opportunities in aerospace, automotive, and energy industries.
April 08, 2019Boeing and NASA have been developing lightweight and compact SMA actuators to support a growing need for improved aircraft efficiency and reduced emissions.
April 07, 2019MedShape Inc., Atlanta, announces the full commercial launch of the DynaClip bone fixation system, which is based on superelastic Nitinol technology.
April 07, 2019Confluent Medical (formerly Nitinol Devices & Components “NDC”), Fremont, Calif., launches the High-Performance Nitinol Tubing Center of Excellence in response to increasing market demand for high-performance nitinol tubing in challenging applications such as transcatheter heart valves, and neurovascular, electrophysiology, and interventional pulmonary devices.
