Welding metals such as stainless steel, titanium and zirconium it is important that the welding zone is purged of oxygen even as low as 10 parts per million (ppm) before, during and immediately…

Metals – Machine Tool Alliance for Skills launched by CECIMO

European Association of the Machine Tool Industries CECIMO launched METALS – MachinE Tool Alliance for Skills. METALS aims at providing machine tool builders with the sought-after applied skills they need in line with…

Could metal particles power combustion engines and replace fossil fuels?

A new study lays out a novel concept for using tiny metal particles — similar in size to fine flour or icing sugar — to power external-combustion engines in replacement for fossil fuels…

Top players of metal industry

Gold edged down towards a three-month low on Wednesday, failing to benefit from a softer dollar, as pressure from an anticipated US rate hike as soon as next month persisted. Platinum also came under…

European metals industry supports Circular Economy Package

The combined European metals industry supports for the upcoming Circular Economy Package through a common position paper. In Boosting the Circular Management of Metals, the metals sector highlights how it looks forward to…

Chemical vapor deposition to produce coatings of metals or polymers

“When the cavemen lit a lamp and soot was deposited on the wall of a cave,” that was a rudimentary form of CVD. MIT chemical engineering professor Karen Gleason found traces of the…

Metal encapsulation to boost termal conductivity

The chemical industry uses large quantities of packing materials. To protect the millimeter-scale particles against abrasion, Fraunhofer IKTS encapsulates them in a layer of metal that boosts their thermal conductivity by a factor…

Analysis of Industrial and Base Metals Fundamental

Copper climbed 5 points as market expectations shifted towards a December US rate hike, which dented the dollar, and suggested that the industry may have longer to access cheaper capital. The US economy…
