- Cold Extrusion Steel: Part Two Although after the transient startup phase the process of cold extrusion is classed as steady-state, in reality, due to changing contact conditions and in process temperature variation this is not accurate.
- Semi Solid Thixoforming: Part One
Thixotropy is characterized by a solid-like behavior at rest and a liquid-like flow when submitted to shear and advantage can be taken of this phenomena through two semi-solid processing routes; thixo-forming and rheo-casting.
- Deep Drawing of Magnesium Alloys
Compared to other materials such as aluminum, magnesium possesses a range of advantageous physical characteristics such as a much lighter weight, specific solidity and rigidity characteristics and good mechanical properties.
- Nickel Flash Smelting
The two commercial classes of nickel ore (sulfide ores and silicate oxides) are produced in the highest quantities in Canada and Russia which equates to approximately 20-25% of the world’s production.
