November 20, 2017For a metal additive manufactured part to achieve final geometric dimensions with required precision, the desired surface finish, and obtain specified material properties, an entire value chain of processes must be used that includes conventional materials manufacturing processes.
November 19, 2017Monash University, Australia, announces that its researchers have developed a cold-rolling technology in which unalloyed magnesium “becomes super-formable at room temperature.”
November 19, 2017Shimadzu Corp., Japan, introduces the HITS-TX high-speed impact testing machine, which can carry out tensile tests of plastics and resin-based composite materials at a maximum speed of 20 m/s (65 ft/sec) and maximum testing force of 10 kN (2248 pounds).
November 19, 2017Carpenter Technology Corp., Philadelphia, announces that its Carpenter Powder Products business has recently released new data from testing of its CarTech Puris 5+ titanium powder, showing that it exceeds the standard Ti 6Al-4V Grade 5 strength levels by nearly 18%.
November 19, 2017Novelis, Atlanta, announces that its Advanz 6HF - e/s200 heat-treatable aluminum alloy provides automakers greater design flexibility due to its superior formability, strength, and weight savings for automotive outer and inner applications.
November 14, 2017Gas nitriding has been performed for almost a century with many variations over the years. The benefits of nitriding are well documented and nitriding has gained amazing industrial acceptance. However, the equipment and control of the nitrided layer has continued to be challenging, and as such, nitriding is still slowly being adopted by industry, but the rate of change is improving.
November 13, 2017The graph shows the results of fatigue testing of standard round bar 316 stainless steel specimens, in tension-compression cycling (R = –1) The symbols represent different sets of specimens, with nontreated specimens identified by triangles, treated specimens by squares.
November 09, 2017Ipsen, Cherry Valley, Ill., has expanded its services to include calibration and survey services that adhere to strict Nadcap requirements.
November 08, 2017Bruker AXS, Billerica, Mass., announces that its new D8 Discover Plus X-ray diffraction system combines the high power of the TXS-HE high-efficiency Turbo X-ray Source, with the large detection area and dynamic range of the Eiger2 R 500K multi-mode hybrid photon counting detector, and the high-endurance Atlas goniometer.
November 07, 2017Emigrating from China to the US in 1950, Y. Austin Chang obtained a PhD in metallurgy and became a world-renowned expert in thermodynamics and metal alloys.
