Electroforming

What is Electroforming and where is it used?

The best way to describe electroforming is a metal forming process used to manufacture parts using electrolyte deposition onto a model. In the manufacturing industry this model is known as a mandrel. It is a highly specialized process which sounds fairly simple in theory but not so easy in practice. We will now take a …

The melting point of steel alloys

The Melting Point of Steel Alloys

In simple terms, the melting point of steel for example, is the temperature when it starts to change from a solid state to a liquid. At this specific melting point temperature both phases of the substance exist in equilibrium. Therefore, further heating needs to be passed through the substance to complete the transition from solid …

AISI 304 stainless steel coils

AISI 304 Stainless Steel: Specification and Datasheet

The SAE/ANSI 304 (AISI 304) is the most commonly available and used type of stainless steel. It is also referred to as 18/8 stainless steel, A2 stainless steel (as per the ISO 3506), or 304S15 (as per the British Standard). This is an austenitic chromium-nickel alloy which practically means that it has a very high …
