Wire Arc Additive Manufacturing allows 3D-printing of large objects at less expense and in a far shorter time. After years of extensive research, commercialization has begun, and heavy industry is set to be transformed.
Sandmeyer Titanium Grade 2/2H (UNS R50400) plate is a real âworkhorseâ? for industrial applications. It combines a low density and high strength-to-weight ratio with outstanding corrosion resistance over a wide range of service applications and industries.
Elmar Upitis, an engineering consultant, was honored with the Founding Committee Award by ASTM International’s committee on steel, stainless steel and related alloys (A01).
ASTM International group has recently declared that it is creating a consolidated reference guide for engineers and consultants who want to use stainless steel in transportation and construction projects.
The newly introduced ASTM International standard will help manufacturers and buyers who want to use 3D-printed stainless steel alloys, which can be made more quickly than through traditional methods.
ASTM International recently expanded its A1035 specification to include several steel chemistry compositions. With this new specification, scheduled to be published mid-July, engineers can clearly designate the mechanical properties needed to meet their design and owner requirements by calling for ASTM A1035 CL, CM or CS.
