Metals & Metal Products info:
Throughout history, metals have been used in a variety of ways. With the growing demand for manufacturing goods, metal products have become increasingly diverse: in the industrial trade, these products range from simple alloys to specific wires and wire products. Serving medical, electrical, and even military needs, metals enable the mass production of parts such as bolts, and production processes like welding.
Individual categories of metal and metal products offer industrial buyers and manufacturers with access to appropriate materials needed to fuel specific application production. The chromium heading, for example, provides a comprehensive list of the various kinds of chromium and the subsequent manufacturing companies. The category Copper and Copper Alloys, however, not only includes a list of companies that provide raw copper materials, but also companies that specialize in certain copper products and fabrication processes, like perforated copper and cold-formation copper.
Rising Wages, Acknowledgment of Hidden Costs Bring Manufacturing Back to U. S. Shores
Highlighting the resurgence of manufacturing in the United States, this paper discusses the factors behind this trend and examines the impact of the reviving domestic production on the die casting industry. It throws light on a recent survey of 252 NADCA (North American Die Casting Association) members, in which 23 percent reported that they...
The Manufacturing Process for Cemented Tungsten Carbides
A complete guide to the manufacturing process for cemented tungsten carbides is presented in this paper. Tungsten carbide is a compound formed by the reaction of tungsten metal powder and carbon powder at temperatures of 2,600-2,700°F. The paper lists various metals and compounds used in manufacturing of tungsten carbide, and describes the...
Fatigue Failure Analysis of Enhanced 35N LTŪ
Results of a study that used Scanning Electron Microscopy (SEM) to determine the causes of fatigue failures in ASTM F562 (cobalt-nickel-chromium-molybdenum alloy) material and the modified 35N LTŪ material are evaluated in this report. It summarizes the results of SEM analysis testing and introduces the SEM evaluation of the fractured samples....
