Check out the April 2017 issue of FORGE, featuring our cover story on how Gerdau modernized its mill to serve the North American SBQ steel market, challenges and opportunities in magnesium forgings, and much more.
Lightweighting initiatives for automotive and aerospace applications have stimulated interest in magnesium as a forging material. Learn about the advantages and limitations of magnesium and research programs that are under way to find the best way to process and forge it.
Gerdau, a leading supplier of SBQ steel, has prepared to better serve the forging industry through modernizing its processes and equipment, finding ways to improve steel cleanliness and remaining intensely focused on forgers.
While many of us might not think of trade secrets (such as the formula for Coca-Cola) as being commonplace, the National Science Foundation estimates that corporations actually employ trade secrets perhaps two times as often as patents.
The Forging Foundation’s mission to support the forging industry through technology development and education – and specifically to transfer technology to the industry and users – doesn’t stop at the borders of North America.
AMH55 allows users to maximize their productivity and easily measure impressions on various surface conditions with accurate micro-/macro-indentation hardness testing available in fully automatic, semi-automatic and lite configurations.
