As a material used for construction and industrial application, aluminum possesses multiple innate qualities that are beneficial and make it a cost-efficient selection for site furnishings and bollards.
While all wood will require a degree of maintenance, choosing certain species during construction can drastically reduce the amount of time and effort needed to preserve its aesthetic value and structural integrity.
Before you order wheels, take time to consider the specific needs of your application.
Stainless steel is the metal of choice for engineers, architects, and industrial designers everywhere, but this sleek, highly sought metal can be difficult to weld because of the need to preserve the chromium oxide layer that gives this modern miracle its anti-corrosive properties.
Picking the right grade of aluminum means balancing cost, ease of manufacturing, and the alloy’s material properties.
Aluminum is the metal of the Space Age, as silicon is the metalloid of the Information Age
Stainless steel is the common name for a large group of ferrous alloys that are resistant to rust.
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.
Have you ever wondered about the difference between bronze and brass? Because they’re both alloys, you won’t find brass or bronze on the periodic table of elements…
Rust is a result of oxidation. Aluminum oxides exist. This leads to the question: does aluminum rust?
Let’s take a look at the basics of tempered steel…and how steel with a temper is more flexible and giving than steel without a temper.
We say we’re “galvanized” when something spurs us to action. So what does it mean when we use the term galvanized steel or metal?
Tool steels must have the right material properties for their application. For example, a drill bit and a punch each need hardness and wear resistance
For most customers it makes very little sense to cover the stainless in a powder coat or other finish. However, customers occasionally choose a colorful finish on stainless, and we thought to walk through the pros and cons.
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
In the modern era, machining is often a finishing step for products created by forging or casting, to bring forged or cast objects to within precision tolerances
There are several factors to consider when choosing trench grate. The contractor might think about aesthetics, cost, wear patterns, total load, weather patterns, and replacement interval.
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
