Ring-rolling simulations have matured into a necessary tool for the efficient production of defect-free rings. Most defects encountered in production can now reliably be detected in a simulation, and solutions for the defects can be quickly implemented and verified. The optimized ring-rolling technology-chain simulation virtually ensures a defect-free product, and the information from the successful simulation can be used to set the operating parameters of your rolling mill.
The TMZ Dual (2TPRG) PC-programmable MODBUS temperature transmitter allows users to increase density and reduce costs with dual RTD, thermocouple, mV, resistance or potentiometer inputs by doubling temperature monitoring capability in a single unit.
Structural cracks are everywhere. What can be done about it, and how do we identify them? We will learn how to determine the potential for failure from crack propagation due to fatigue in this article.
Cost of quality (CoQ) is a hot topic right now. There have even been committees formed in various trade groups to take a closer look at CoQ. You probably have had internal discussions about the CoQ in your company and how those costs compare to other like manufacturers.
