Stainless steel is the common name for a large group of ferrous alloys that are resistant to rust.
From surface defects to cooling defects, how do casting defects occur and what causes them?
How do foundries perform castings inspections without causing any damage to the castings?
Cast iron and cast steel look very similar, so what’s the difference?
Near net shape manufacturing is a planned production process that aims to make an object as close to its final shape as possible. Near net shape manufacturing minimizes waste, lowers costs, and reduces the time needed to produce a finished item. A near net shape manufacturing process is cost efficient and better for the environment, demanding less energy and resources.
Rust is a result of oxidation. Aluminum oxides exist. This leads to the question: does aluminum rust?
Although all steel is made of iron and carbon, different types of steel contain different percentages of each element. Steel can also include other elements like nickel, molybdenum, manganese, titanium, boron, cobalt, or vanadium
Foundries are responsible for our current standard of living and industrial development, but most of us know next to nothing about them. So what is a foundry? Foundry Definition In simplified terms, a foundry is a factory where castings are produced by melting metal, pouring
Cast steels can be produced with a wide range of properties. The physical properties of cast steel change significantly depending on chemical composition and heat treatment.
People often assume that cast iron and wrought iron are interchangeable terms for early iron work, but there is a world of difference.
Metalworkers have used the same casting processes for millennia, with the first castings dating back to the 4th century BC in China.
The presence of iron in everyday life began in about 1200 BCE, encompassing a wide range of uses from farming implements to weapons of war. Blacksmiths became a critical profession, working with iron to change its properties and shape the material into tools. Every village and town would have a blacksmith’s shop, where sickles, plowshares, nails, swords, candlestick holders, and more were produced.
Stainless steel products are created in a seven-step manufacturing process. Peer into the factory to see how stainless products are made.
All iron alloys poured in a foundry are cast iron. However, ductile is a relative newcomer…one that is surprisingly flexible.
In the 1990s, most foundries were local, doing custom castings. Globalization created challenges for all but a few. Read the business success story of a family foundry that had to innovate to save the company.
Sand casting is a versatile and economical casting method. Learn how it works.
Spectrochemical analysis is used to determine the arrangement of atoms and electrons within molecules of chemical compounds. Optical emission spectroscopy (OES) is a type of spectrochemical analysis that determines elemental components in solid metal samples, often used in foundries.
Before Vancouver became the City of Glass, it was host to a strong manufacturing base. Foundries first appeared in Vancouver near the beginning of the 20th century, and they saw rapid growth over the course of several decades.
