The patent-pending Weld Mold RC-17 Fly-By-Wire welding process enables operators to perform totally remote floodwelding from the safety of a temperature-controlled environment while maintaining total control of the welding operation and long-established best welding procedures.
Cleveland was revisited as the site of Forge Fair 2017 April 4-6. More than 1,600 attendees made their way to the shores of Lake Erie to see the best and brightest that the forging industry had to offer.
For the second consecutive time, Cleveland hosted Forge Fair during the first week of April. The event was a rousing success, as forging industry executives and technical experts from around the world converged on the shores of Lake Erie for three days of exhibitions and technical sessions.
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.
The repair of worn forging dies by flood-welding techniques has been around for many decades. Advances in the evolution of the process have made it a cheaper, quicker and more effective way to extend the life of die blocks and reduce tool-steel inventory costs. Today, many forging companies consider flood welding an integral part of their routine die maintenance programs.
Given that aluminum and its alloys offer numerous advantages over many other metals, it is not surprising that inquiries about induction billet-heating equipment increasingly involve the heating of aluminum alloys.
