March 11, 2019Los Alamos National Laboratory, New Mexico, announces that its scientists have developed a tungsten-based alloy that can withstand unprecedented amounts of radiation without damage.
March 11, 2019ASM International is pleased to announce the addition of seven new Digital Short Courses to the ASM Materials Solutions Education course offerings. The new modules are part of a continuum of learning options within ASM’s physical laboratory/classrooms, online references, and Customized On-Site Training classes held at client locations.
March 11, 2019Oxford Instruments Asylum Research, Santa Barbara, Calif., announces the new Jupiter XR Atomic Force Microscope, the first and only large-sample AFM to offer both high-speed imaging and extended range in a single scanner.
March 08, 2019Kermetico, Benicia, Calif., makes specialized HVAF systems to spray metal coatings and alloyed powder compositions onto uncommon substrates such as acme threads, thin walls, and temperature-sensitive materials.
March 08, 2019The diagram compares the particle velocity and gas temperature ranges of cold spray and other thermal spray processes: In the cold spray process, the gas and particle temperatures are much lower and the gas and particle velocity are much higher than in other thermal spray processes.
March 07, 2019Metallization of polymers is an attractive way of improving their electrical and erosion properties, but it is still challenging to achieve a dense metal coating on polymer surfaces by thermal spray processes, due to excessive surface erosion during processing.
March 06, 2019Engineers from Carnegie Mellon University and Argonne National Laboratory report that they have discovered defects in the products of the Laser Powder Bed Fusion (LPBF) process by taking videos of the products with super-fast high-energy x-rays as they are being built.
March 04, 2019The usual objective of austenitizing is to produce an austenitic matrix with as uniform a carbon content as possible prior to thermal processing. The graph shows the 2% silicon section of the Fe-C-Si phase diagram.
March 03, 2019Harper International, Buffalo, N.Y., has developed an on-line furnace cleaning system that is located in the entrance section, which enables cleaning while the furnace is hot.
March 03, 2019The Engineering Division of the Linde Group, Bridgewater, N.J., announces that it has signed a contract to design and supply hydrogen production equipment for the core components of Praxair Inc.’s hydrogen plant in Louisiana.
