  • The Cold Hard Truth About Cryorolling

    The Cold Hard Truth About Cryorolling0

    In metalworking, rolling refers to the use of two or more heavy-duty rollers to compress metal stock. The metal stock is fed through the rollers to achieve a lower profile and uniform thickness (among other things). Not all rolling processes are the same, however. Even if you’re familiar with hot rolling and cold rolling, there

  • What Is Tempered Steel?

    What Is Tempered Steel?0

    Based on its name alone, you may assume that tempered steel is a unique type of steel with a specific ratio of iron to carbon. While tempered steel is, in fact, an iron alloy, it still has the same amount of iron and carbon as conventional steel. Nonetheless, tempered steel offers a superior level of

    Why Iron Rusts (And How to Prevent It)0

    Iron is arguably one of the world’s most important metals. It’s relatively strong, lightweight and malleable, making it an effective material for countless products. In its natural state, however, iron is highly susceptible to rusting. Over time, the versatile metal will become corrode, resulting in the formation of iron oxide, which is more commonly known
