Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory (LLNL) and U.S. Steel are working in partnership through the High-Performance Computing for Manufacturing (HPC4Mfg) program to apply high-performance computing (HPC), modeling and simulation to improve industrial operations and reduce waste at hot-strip mills.
This article looks at ways our means of transportation – how we get from here to there – are heat treated. We start with aerospace and then consider vehicular transportation followed by manual propulsion.
Using a Superheat SmartFurnace for heat treating pipe welds right in its own fabrication shop, rather than off-site, Manhattan Mechanical Services saved a large oil-refinery customer up to 40% on labor costs.
Looking closely at an object and noticing its features and details is a good way to increase our creative powers. Following up on our curiosity is a good way to build a solid foundation of knowledge. Studying natural objects in this way is an excellent entrance to the world of scientific facts.
As we ease back into the increasingly unfriendly skies, Google has launched a tool to help us all – a flight search engine that tells us the emissions per passenger for that trip. Google is catching up to a reality the airlines and their aircraft and parts manufacturers are coming to realize: Just as governments target passenger vehicle emissions, they are increasingly focused on the aviation industry.
It’s already November, which means it’s the time of year that we shine a spotlight on the aerospace segment of our industry. Aerospace involves such things as commercial jets, military, space travel, satellites and a variety of equipment (e.g., planes, helicopters, rockets, drones, etc.).
A webshop, www.store.ametekstc.com, offers quick, reliable and secure online shopping of hardness testing accessories such as shear pins, test blocks, indenters and anvils that can be used with both Newage products as well as other Rockwell, Brinell, Vickers and Knoop hardness testing and micro-hardness testing systems.
The lab-scale rotary furnace allows producers of advanced materials to optimize their process parameters on a small scale to ensure capability and quality requirements are achieved prior to investment in production-scale thermal-processing equipment.
