  • Metal-faced sensors
    industrystandard housings with ac or dc outputs at a cost competitive with traditional models. Just how much longer do metal-face proximity sensors last compared to plastic-face sensors? Abrasion testing at determined that a stainless-steel sensing face that was 0.4-mm thick prolonged sensor life over 20
  • Tips for metal-to-plastic conversions
    A switch to plastic may be one way of getting the leg up on the competition. No question a lot of metal parts have been converted to plastic over the past several years. But there are still many opportunities for conversion that go unevaluated. That's because designers sometimes dismiss plastics
  • Material Testing: Monitoring Metal Fatigue Crack Growth
    CAS DataLoggers recently supplied the data acquisition and control solution for a prominent manufacturer of material used in the aviation and aerospace industries. Characterizing the growth rate of cracks in metal samples under repeated cyclical stress was critical to the customer.
  • Guidelines for Cleaning Stamped Metal Parts
    expended to achieve a proper cleaning that is compatible with the finishing process. Cleaning of formed metal parts has become extremely important so much so, that automotive companies have implemented stringent testing programs to qualify a product on a) how it washes of and b) the quality of the part
  • Mind Over Metal: Master Impurities
    Operational Excellence & Lean Six Sigma What Can Insulated Metal Panels Do for a Drug Manufacturing Facility? Medical Imaging Monitors Pharmaceutical Process Health The Desired State: PAT and the Road to Enlightenment Purdue Research Park Center to Manufacture Lilly Drug Industrial Interoperability
  • Where a Metal Probe Probes for the Perfect Material
    There are a lot of different materials to choose from when you are designing a metal probe. If you follow our blog, you know we've talked before about the use of tungsten wire for probes, in everything from medical device applications to integrated circuit testing. Across the board, these and other
  • Testing the Strength and Integrity of Welding Studs Attached to Sheet Metal
    The Mountz Weld Stud Test Tool is designed for use during the production of sheet metal products to test the strength and integrity of welds used to attach threaded studs to the sheet metal. A company that manufacturers popcorn machines, conveyor ovens, and toasters in Missouri wanted capability
  • Nonmetallic Case: Adhesive Bonding Failure on Metal Part
    An assembly plant processing parts for the petrochemical industry was having difficulty getting any epoxy glue to bond two metal pieces. The problem seemed isolated to a specific batch of parts which had been received from a supplier. A random selection of 5 unglued parts was submitted to Sherry
  • Looking for an Alternative Yellow Metal Corrosion Inhibitor
    For the last thirty years, benzotriazole and its derivatives have dominated industrial yellow metal corrosion inhibitors. By far, the most popular of these has been tolyltriazole. It has become the industry standard and is, today, usually the only copper corrosion inhibitor considered by water
  • An Introduction to ASTM B898, The Reactive and Refractory Metal Clad Specification (.pdf)
    In 1999 the ASTM B10 committee Task Force on Clad Metal completed development and approvals of a specification covering Reactive and Refractory Metal Clad Plate. The task force effort included participation by representatives from equipment fabricators, chemical companies, metal manufacturers
