February 06, 2018Thermo Scientific, Madison, Wis., introduces the Genesys family of automated, robust UV-Visible spectrophotometers, which are accessible, network-ready, and designed to meet expectations for advanced technology in a compact package.
February 06, 2018The Georgia Institute of Technology, Atlanta, announces that its researchers used an electrochemical etching process to create a nanotextured surface that kills bacteria on a common stainless steel alloy.
February 06, 2018Scientists at the Department of Energy’s SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory, Stanford, Calif., are using X-ray light to observe and understand how the process of making metal parts using 3D printing can leave flaws in the finished product.

February 01, 2018Buildup of a thermal spray coating is a chaotic process, because molten particles spread out and deform (splat) as they strike the substrate, at first keying onto asperities, then interlocking with one another.
January 28, 2018Researchers at the National Research Council of Canada (NRC), Ottawa, have reportedly developed a method to produce permanent magnets for electric motors by cold spray metal additive manufacturing.
January 28, 2018The Carnegie Institution for Science, Washington, D.C., reports that its researchers have synthesized a long-sought form of titanium nitride, Ti3N4, which has promising mechanical and optoelectronic properties.
January 14, 2018Volkswagen Group, Germany, reports that it is developing metal 3D printing for replacement parts such as the water connectors for the Audi W12 engine shown here, as well as for molding and diecasting tools.
January 10, 2018Thermal spray coatings exhibit a unique microstructural architecture. Coatings are formed as melted and partially melted particles of different sizes impact substrates at a rate of perhaps one million particles per second, and build up one upon the other.
January 03, 2018Höganäs AB, Sweden, has signed an agreement to acquire German H.C. Starck Group’s Surface Technology & Ceramic Powders (STC) division for its broad product portfolio and strong trademarks.
January 02, 2018CTS (Cincinnati Thermal Spray Inc.) and SST (Solution Spray Technologies LLC), Storrs, Conn., announce a non-exclusive license agreement that solidifies a long-term partnership with goals to further commercialize the solution precursor plasma spray process (SPPS).
