In doesn’t matter if it’s managerial or technical, with the next decade’s shortage of labor and fast-paced change, quality training is going to be an absolute must if you want to maximize your productivity and people.
Retrogression heat treatment and re-aging (RRA) is used for retaining optimal strength in aluminum alloys while avoiding stress corrosion cracking (SCC). Last time, we learned about the SCC phenomenon and its effects on aluminum alloys.
Heraeus AMLOY has successfully produced an amorphous-metal guitar bridge by metal additive manufacturing. A guitar bridge made of amorphous metal will not wear out and will not need to be replaced, and it is also biocompatible.
Unlike the amorphous metal described in the prior story, additive manufacturing of metals typically leads to the formation of columnar grain structures in the build direction. This can cause detrimental property anisotropy.
By the beginning of 2021, Airbus plans to increase its A320 production rate from five to seven per month at its plant in Mobile, Ala. The production increase will help Airbus meet its 2021 monthly goal of producing 63 A320 aircraft at its four assembly sites.

Following the company’s decision last year to sell its CRJ regional jet program to Mitsubishi and its aerostructures manufacturing business in Belfast to Spirit Aerosystems, Bombardier Inc. is selling its remaining stake in the A220 jetliner program.
China has pledged to buy almost $80 billion of additional manufactured goods from the U.S. over the next two years as part of a trade-war truce. In total, China pledged to buy $200 billion more in U.S. goods and services over the next two years.
Aluminum brazing is a growing industry around the world today, and I teach a lot about this topic in each of my brazing training seminars. This article discusses dealing with the oxide as well as brazing aluminum to stainless steel.
Check out the February 2020 issue of Industrial Heating, featuring an editorial on Nonferrous – Products and Their Processes, along with the Inspection and Maintenance Critical to Safe Fuel-Train Operation.
