Ferro-Tic(reg) titanium carbide materials are used in tooling and wear parts. Grinding Quill material has an influence on the dimensional control and surface finish of small bores under 2 inches. Ferro-Tic also features a low density and high elastic modulus, and reduces quill design tolerances and chatter. Applications include those that require a material with a high specific modulus such as diamond-roll dresser spindles.

A bold, gold, open-air coupe may not be the ticket to automotive nirvana for every consumer, but Lexus’ LF-C2 concept car certainly turned heads at the recent Los Angeles Auto Show. What’s more, it may provide a glimpse of the luxury automaker’s future.
The complexity of diesel engines means optimizing their performance requires a large amount of experimentation. Computational fluid dynamics (CFD) is a very useful and intuitive tool in this, and cold flow analysis using CFD is an ideal approach to study the flow characteristics without going into the details of chemical reactions occurring during the combustion.
