The March 2020 issue of Industrial Heating includes an editorial piece on "ExpaniteHard-Ti Questions and Answers". Other features include "An Overview of Nitriding - Technology and Tribological Benefits", "Producing Quality Metal Parts with Additive Manufacturing", and much more
The nitriding process begins at the surface of the part with the formation of a compound (aka white) layer, which depends to a large extent on the composition of the steel (in particular, the carbon content).
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.
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.
A relatively recent phenomenon in the field of additive manufacturing (AM) has been the discovery of “keyholes” (i.e., flaws) that form during the metal AM process. AM’s promise to revolutionize industry is currently constrained by a widespread problem: tiny gas pockets in the final product, which can lead to cracks and other failures.
As a reader of this journal, you know that you work in the largest energy-consuming sector of the U.S. manufacturing economy. You should also know some of the details and nuances of what this can mean.
In 1968, a prominent heat treater in Oakland, Calif., joined forces with a local brazing company. The companies wanted to do both heat treating and brazing in one shop. The combo proved to be a great idea.
Groov RIO, a family of intelligent, distributed input/output (I/O) for the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) and automation applications, can quickly connect traditional wired switches and sensors directly to Ethernet networks, software applications and cloud platforms without intermediary control or communication hardware.
Thermal IQ Optimize provides users with real-time analytics and fault modeling with early event detection at plant, equipment and process level to keep thermal-processing equipment running safely, efficiently and effectively.
The new-generation Minac – a mobile all-in-one induction system for the heating of practically any electrically conductive material – is prepared for developments within advanced analytics and predictive maintenance, condition monitoring and alarming, automation and real-time data, machine learning, remote service, and augmented reality.
