Recent Advancements / Trends in Extrusion Process Technology

Advances in Extrusion Process Extrusion of metals and alloys, as well as metallic composite materials, has seen substantial scientific and technological advancement in recent years. This mostly relates to the idea of optimizing existing processes and attempting to implement new ones that are near to “ideal,” but it also applies to the development of new … Read more

Painting vs Coating : Difference between Painting and Coating, Which one is best ?

Painting vs Coating / Difference between Painting and Coating Due to no clear definition for any term in the regulations and standards, the names are frequently used interchangeably. The term “painting specification” has traditionally been applied to industrial applications. However, many end-users are currently altering the title of their specification to “Protective Coating Specification” or … Read more

Intermediate Stress Relieving ISR: Where is it Required, Difference between DHT and ISR

Intermediate Stress Relieving ISR Heat treating a subassembly in a furnace to a specified cycle after critical constrained weld joint / joints have been completed without allowing the welds to cool below the pre-heat temperature. The rate of heating, soaking temperature, soaking time, and rate of cooling are all affected by the quality and thickness … Read more

Dehydrogenation Heat Treatment (DHT): Importance, Benefits, Cr-Mo-V Requirements

Dehydrogenation Heat Treatment (DHT) or Post-heating Dehydrogenation Heat Treatment (DHT) is a treatment utilised specifically when welding or preheat is paused or stopped during the fabrication cycle or PWHT is not done immediately due to further fabrication requirements. It is usually done at 300-350 °C [600 – 650˚F (min 570 ˚F)]. Very common and used … Read more

Preheating and Interpass Temperature: Importance, Benefits, Effects on Properties

Preheating Before beginning welding, heat the weldment to a minimum predetermined temperature and maintain it throughout the welding process is called preheating. Preheating is the process of elevating the temperature of the parent material on both sides of the joint to a temperature that is higher than ambient. Preheat is normally required by the relevant … Read more

Heat Treatment of welded joints: Reasons, Types of heat treatment in welded joints, bad or good ?

Heat Treatment of welded joints The intensity of the thermal cycles, which result in large residual stresses and/or weld metal and heat affected zone properties that differ radically from those of the parent material, determines the possibility of a weld defects. Failure might be sudden, occur over a short period of time, or present itself … Read more

Recent Advancements / Trends in Drawing Process Technology

Advances in Drawing Process Traditionally, wire drawing technology has been used to process simple axiasymmetrical goods. The process’s principal drawback is friction at the interface between the drawing tool and the deformed material, which results in variability of characteristics across the drawn wires’ cross-section. Increasing the product qualities during conventional wire drawing by modifying the … Read more

Recent Advancements / Trends in Forging Process Technology

Advancements in forging processes Computer Aided Engineering (CAE) in Cold Forging Process Competition around the globe requires the cold forging industry to utilize practical and proven computer aided design (CAD), computer aided manufacturing (CAM) and computer aided engineering (CAE) technologies for fast and cost effective process design and die manufacturing. That leads to higher accuracy, … Read more
