Carpenter Technology Corp.'s new ultra high-strength steel (UHSS) alloy that is a lower cost
alternative to many cobalt-containing precipitation hardenable alloys. Temper
Tough alloy is an air-melted, cobalt-free quench and tempered alloy that has a
unique combination of high strength and high toughness attributes that may allow
designers and engineers to achieve an extended cycle life where components are
under high loads with constant stress of intense, repetitive motion.
This alloy is a lower cost alternative to cobalt-containing
precipitation hardenable alloys for a variety of general purpose tooling,
industrial and automotive applications, especially those in which designers may
be seeking to lighten the weight and increase the longevity of their products. Temper
Tough alloy is able to attain both a typical strength of 290 ksi ultimate
tensile strength (UTS) and a typical range of toughness between 60 and 65 ksiâˆšin. Temper Tough
has also demonstrated fatigue resistance properties (axial-axial) of 120 ksi
(827 MPa) compared to traditional quench-and-temper alloy steels averaging
79-85 ksi (545-586 MPa).
The attributes of Temper Tough alloy make it useful for applications in
high-demand crank cases, drive trains, power trains, structural members,
suspensions and industrial tooling.
Because of the increasing ubiquity of wearable technology, it would be easy to think that design of wearable devices is routine and involves common design and engineering knowledge. Missed efforts in development will be remembered once the devices are used in the field
This grab-bag of new fasteners and adhesives work with a range of materials they can attach to, as well as a wide variety of applications. Several are for use in consumer applications, such as wearables or other compact electronic assemblies, and some of the adhesives have extended service temperature ranges and cure at room temperature.
As governments, associations, and NGOs around the world seek to protect consumers, national and regional standards are becoming mandatory, challenging manufacturers and making testing and certification necessary for any product developed and brought to market.
