The Melting Points of Metals

Metals are known for their ability to withstand extreme conditions.

What is Decarburization?

Carbon content variations have a pronounced effect on steel; apart from the obvious chemical changes that occur as carbon content changes, there are also important changes to the mechanical properties of a steel as well.

What is a Press Brake?

One of the benefits of many types of metals is the fact that they are relatively ductile; ductility ensures that metals bend before they break.

Metal Dimension Tolerances Explained

Metal Dimension Tolerances When ordering a metal, the customer typically asks for a specific shape and size.

What is Metal Aging?

Metal aging is one of the most common ways to alter the properties of a metal alloy.

What is Metal Fatigue?

Metal fatigue is one of the subtlest types of metal failures, and one of the most dangerous.

The Difference Between Overheating and Burning a Metal

Using a metal material when creating a new product or structure comes with a host of benefits: high strength, ductility, toughness, ability to withstand the environments, and many others.

What is Creep?

Creep is a topic in metallurgy that can be quite confusing; while not common knowledge to many people, the subject of creep is one that those in charge of selecting metals must be aware of.
