  • Stainless Steel Specifications for Fan Equipment
    Specifiers and users of air-moving equipment are often faced with the presence of corrosive, abrasive, or high temperature conditions which may be detrimental to the service life of. standard mild steel fan equipment. Recognizing the limitless variety of stainless steel alloys or polyester
  • Re-Painting or Re-Caulking Interior
    Normally an unpainted mild steel interior surface will not rust if the equipment is used continually above 220°F. The humidity level will be very low as the moisture will be boiled off during the process. If the equipment sets idle for long periods of time, moisture can condensate on these surfaces
  • Unlikely Film Star: Thermic Lance
    on high-temperature combustion of iron to burn its way through metal and even concrete. The lance is typically a 10 to 30-ft iron or mild-steel
  • BEAUTY AND BRAWN
    by the prince, resembles a raptor's talon and is serrated along the cutting edge. Blades from O-1 tool, S-2, and mild steel are extremely tough, sharpen easily, hold an edge, and if bent can be straightened cold. The composition of the blade after forging is approximately 29% mild steel, 29% O-1, and 42%
  • Combining 2-D and 3-D Laser Applications
    . A typical job shop with laser cutting equipment processes either 4- by 8-foot or 5- by 10-ft. sheets of mild steel, stainless, and aluminum. Thicknesses are from 20 gauge to 0.5 inch, depending on the resonator 's beam output. The operator seeks to improve both productivity and profits
  • LVP's Speed Capacity Pays for Machine
    customers, and our relationships with them play a crucial role in our continuous growth, " Plant Manager Steve Smith explains. The company can cut mild steel from 16 gauge to six inches, and is known for their ability to turn around hot jobs. In 2000, the company moved into laser manufacturing
  • Applications
    Fasteners smaller than 3/32 in. in diameter and bolts or unthreaded pins up to 1 1/4 in. in diameter can be successfully welded. Fastener lengths vary from 1/4 to 40 in., depending upon end use. Fasteners may be made of mild steel, stainless steel, alloy steel, aluminum, brass, bronze, or magnesium
  • New "window " of opportunity for e-beam welding
    .-thick 316 stainless-steel plate. Butt weld on mild steel. Penetration ranges from 0.050 to 0.100 in. Holes drilled in steel plate using the Plasma Arc Window EBW. Those considering electron-beam welding (EBW) have three basic techniques from which to choose: nonvacuum, partial vacuum, and high vacuum
  • Rust takes a rest
    steps of conventional methods. The MetalJacket process is either one or two-part, depending on the application. The first part, an autodepositing metal treatment called MetalJacket 1100, replaces the zinc-phosphating step and prepares mild steel for part two, the coating. MetalJacket 2100 coating
  • Coreless DC Motors
    into those containing inside fields or outside fields. The disc types have pancake, printed, or three-coil rotors. The cylindrical outside-field motor has the smallest mechanical time constant. The stator is a cylindrical permanent magnet surrounded by a mild steel housing. The rotor is a hollow
  • Multiaxis Lasers Come Of Age
    baffles, engine cover plates, and radiator components. Materials are typically mild steel and aluminum. Today's multiaxis lasers offer double the performance compared with machines of a decade ago. For instance, the Laserdyne 790 BeamDirector has linear-axis travels of 2 1 1 m with linear accuracy over
  • Low-stress bonds through orbital forming
    is a process that uses an angled forming tool (peen) that spins off center at a 3 to 6 angle to securely fasten an assembly. The tool progressively heads, swages, crowns, flares, or draws a column or projection of malleable material to join pieces. The process works with a wide variety of materials from mild
  • Chamber Maintenance Tips
    You must make sure to complete comprehensive chamber maintenance to help ensure the performance and longevity of your testing chamber. This article describes an environmental test chamber maintenance plan to keep your chamber in utmost condition. Clean interior surfaces with a damp cloth, mild
  • Processing Advanced High-Strength Steels (AHSS) with Rotary Bending Technology
    , trimming, and forming operations with AHSS materials present numerous challenges which are generally not encountered with conventional low-carbon alloy, "mild" steels.
