How you interact with Industrial Heating may affect your awareness of resources available to you. Do you only read the print magazine? If so, there is a world of additional information available on our website and through our newsletters. Read More
There are several different processes that require a product to flow through a pipe from one piece of equipment to another. A certain level of heat is often required for this process piping, and this heat must be at very high levels for many applications.
With a goal of boosting the performance of a McLaren 2014 MP4-12C supercar, a team of engineers redesigned components. Finding the component manufacture to be a challenge, metal additive manufacturing (AM) was used to build the parts.
Last year, it seemed as though cannabis-infused drinks were in the offing. Almost everyone (Molson Coors, Anheuser-Busch, etc.) seemed to be getting into the act. Unfortunately, aluminum containers react with the THC to reduce its effectiveness.
Amplify Additive, a Maine metal additive manufacturing start-up, is producing a range of titanium implants using GE Additive Arcam’s Electron Beam Melting (EBM) technology. Arcam’s EBM Q10plus operates under vacuum at elevated temperatures to provide exceptional material properties.
BMW’s largest press shop is the first in which all aluminum-sheet waste is separated and recycled. The challenge is the separation, which collects scrap from 12 different production presses, maintaining the integrity of the different aluminum alloys.
Including our last Ezine, we have occasionally discussed electric-powered and even autonomous flight. One of the challenges this poses is the battery technology. We previously mentioned Uber Air, which is hoping to set up an affordable taxi network.
This article is a Q & A with Rune Strand regarding ExpaniteHard-Ti. Strand is project manager and material scientist at Expanite A/S, and he holds an MSc in material science and manufacturing. He has spent most of his career in the field of surface hardening and heat treatment of stainless steel.
