MELTING/FORMING/JOINING

The Science of Diffusion Bonding or Joining Together Dissimilar Metals

Jeff Elliott – Technical Writer; Torrance, Calif.

Metal diffusion bonding is an essential joining method for achieving a high-purity interface when two similar metals require superior structural integrity. The process involves applying high temperature, and pressure to metals mated together in a hot press causes the atoms on solid metallic surfaces to intersperse and bond.

PROCESS CONTROL & INSTRUMENTATION

Applying Through-Process Temperature Monitoring in Continuous Furnaces

Dr. Steve Offley – PhoenixTM; Cambridgeshire, UNITED KINGDOM

Careful preparation and planning as to how pyrometry requirements should be implemented are essential from a practical perspective, especially for ever-increasing automated and complex multistage, semi-continuous or continuous processes.

HEAT TREATING

Making the Case for a Short-Cycle Deep-Cryogenic Treatment for Tool Steels

Dennis Kamody – Consultant; Pittsburgh, Pa.

ASM’s subcommittee recommends that a long-cycle deep-cryogenic treatment (DCT) followed by a low-temperature temper (LDCT+T) should be the standard DCT practice. Many investigations by researchers using this standard and case studies cited positive results, but there have also been investigations that cited negative results. Differences in property outcomes cited by one study may differ from another for the same steel, and differences in property outcomes by one heat-treat facility may differ from another for the same steel.

Reshoring Can Ease Inflation Pressures

Harry Moser – Reshoring Initiative®

Supply-chain bottlenecks, shrinking inventories, massive consumer demand and inflation concerns can be alleviated by manufacturing locally. Reshoring can ease some of the pain.

Government Pushing Additive Manufacturing

NASA, FDA, NIH and the Departments of Energy and Defense: These are just a few of the government actors in the increasingly growing space of additive manufacturing (AM) and 3D printing. For more than 30 years, both private industry and the federal government have invested hundreds of millions of dollars into 3D printing, with industrial 3D printing an increasing portion of the manufacturing sector.

Developments in Thermal Processing of Powder for Cold-Spray AM Enhancements

One of the most critical innovations surrounding the extension of cold-spray materials processing from a non-structural repair or coating acquisition into a structural repair and solid-state additive manufacturing (AM) is the development of thermal-preprocessing technology for the feedstock powder.
