Look at Alternative Metal Forming Processes, to keep at the forefront of your market.

New technologies are becoming very viable alternatives to traditional manufacturing methods.

There is a massive opportunity for cost reduction, faster throughput, enhanced asthetics and improved performance and functionality by selecting an alternative metal forming methodolgy.

Technology is advancing and new technologies are becoming very viable alternatives to traditional manufacturing methods.

Multipart fabrications can be converted to single piece castings. Low volume complex parts are turning to 3D Laser Sintering and other rapidly advancing Additive Manufacturing technologies. Small complex parts in high volumes are turning away from Investment Casting towards Metal Injection Molding. Less complex small high volume parts are often most effectively made via Convential Powder Metallurgy press-sintering.

In these very competitive times it makes sense to re-evaluate your production methodology and often outsourcing a component of your manufacturing will not only make economic sense but will also keep your organization at the forefront of your market place with your product offer.

Part I. The Metallurgy of: “Alloy Selection for Elevated Temperature Application”

Introduction This is a complex subject in part due to the time dependant mechanical behaviour of metals under load at elevated temperature. At room temperature, we understand that a part is failing once it is past it’s yield point – plastic deformation is occurring. The part is completely destroyed once…

Part II. The Metallurgy of: “Alloy Selection for Elevated Temperature Application”

Malabou cast special alloys that allow for castings to be used at elevated temperature’s, in some cases in excess of 1000°C. These heat resistant casting alloys consist of predominantly of combinations of nickel, chromium and iron together with small percentages of other elements. Castings made of these high temperature alloys…
