  • An Overview of Cryogenic Hardening for Metal

    An Overview of Cryogenic Hardening for Metal0

    Metals like steel, iron, copper and aluminum are often heat treated to improve their physical properties. When metal is exposed to heat, it undergoes a chemical reaction in which its atoms expand. Normally, heat treatment is performed in conjunction with cooling. After the metal has been heated, it’s rapidly cooled to achieve more desirable properties

    Comparison of The Most Common Bending Processes0

    Not all manufacturing applications require the use of flat metal. Some require the use of warped metal. For applications such as this, the raw sheet metal must be deformed using a bending process. In metalworking, bending refers to the deformation of an otherwise flat piece of metal, causing it to bend either up or down

    Why Water Pipes Are Often Made of Copper0

    Copper isn’t used strictly in the production of electrical wires. While its highly conductive properties make it ideal for electrical applications, copper is also frequently used to make water pipes. In residential homes, commercial buildings and municipality water systems, copper water pipes are common. Upon reading this, though, you might be wondering why copper is
