The company offers specialized performance characteristics, using a highly-controlled hardening and tempering process to selectively modify the internal steel structure. The pre-tempered material is made for parts, wear plates, spring washers and brackets. Distortion, irregular and out-of-spec parts are cut down by using pre-tempering, which has no secondary heat treating, a common cause of these problems. The company uses an advanced, computer-controlled process to produce the material uniformly, consistently and with lot-to-lot repeatability. The high carbon and alloy strip steel comes in scaleless blue, polished blue, polished bright and polished straw finishes. Blue Blade Steelhttp://rbi.ims.ca/4928-616
At the Design News webinar on June 27, learn all about aluminum extrusion: designing the right shape so it costs the least, is simplest to manufacture, and best fits the application's structural requirements.
For industrial control applications, or even a simple assembly line, that machine can go almost 24/7 without a break. But what happens when the task is a little more complex? That’s where the “smart” machine would come in. The smart machine is one that has some simple (or complex in some cases) processing capability to be able to adapt to changing conditions. Such machines are suited for a host of applications, including automotive, aerospace, defense, medical, computers and electronics, telecommunications, consumer goods, and so on. This radio show will show what’s possible with smart machines, and what tradeoffs need to be made to implement such a solution.
