Despite promises to cut steel overcapacity, China actually brought more steel production online last year, resulting in a surge in air pollution in northern China, especially around Beijing, according to a report released this week by Greenpeace East Asia. The growth in operating capacity was more than twice the total steel making capacity of Britain, the report said. The increase in steel production, which is powered by the burning of coal, also means that levels of greenhouse gas emissions from that sector almost certainly grew last year, compared withRead more

Taiyuan Steel Cracks the secret of Special Steel Manufacturing for the Ball-Point Pen (US)

Share on FacebookShare on Google+Tweet about this on TwitterShare on LinkedInPin on PinterestEmail this to someonePrint this page

As the world’s biggest ball-point pen maker, China’s more than 3,000 pen manufacturers have been producing more than 40 billion pens annually, according to the Shanxi province-based steelmaker. Taiyuan Steel, one of the country’s largest stainless-steel makers, said after close to 100 experiments, it had made “major breakthroughs” on seven technical challenges. They include the steel’s performance stability, corrosion resistance and “free-cutting” property that allows it to be machined easily. Among other challenges are coming up with the right process for blending different metals in the alloy and harmless treatment of impurities. Taiyuan Steel said its product was subject to 1,000 tests in a laboratory of a major domestic pen producer, and a pen made of the material was demonstrated to be able to write for 800 metres at different angles without a break.

Shanxi-based Taiyuan Iron & SteelCo Ltd, or Tisco, one of China’s major stainless steel producers, has independently developed the special steel needed to make the feedstock for ballpoint pens tips. It is hoped this will replace the annual import of 1,000 metric tons of special steelRead more

As the most important industrial construction material, with more than 2,500 grades, steel is highly specialized for diverse applications. Even the smallest changes of the composition can modify the material structure on an atomic scale and improve material properties on the macroscale. The consortium of the EU-project Z-Ultra, led by the Fraunhofer Institute for Mechanics of Materials IWM, has developed new 12% chromium alloys for high-temperature applications that are up to 30% stronger than traditional 9% chromium steels and withstand higher temperatures and pressures for a longer period of time. Atomistic simulations supported the development of the new steel alloys in a targeted manner.

Higher operating temperatures in gas and coal power plants mean higher efficiencies and, therefore, less CO2 emissions per kilowatt-hour of electricity. However, the temperature capacity of real materials is naturally limited. The materials used in power plants (usually steels) Read more

“The failure of the engine was reportedly traced to illegal replacement of precious heat-resistant alloys within the engine’s components with less expensive but failure-prone materials,”

In recent years, the Russian space program has had a series of problems with its flagship rockets, the heavy-lift Proton booster and the smaller Soyuz rocket used to launch crews and cargo to the International Space Station. The Proton rocket has been grounded since last summer, and the Soyuz has not flown since December, when its third stage engine failed and a Progress cargo spacecraft was lost. Most of these problems have been traced to engines that power the second and third stages of the Proton and Soyuz rockets. The majority of these engines are built at the Voronezh Manufacturing Plant in southwestern Russia, near the Ukrainian border. Russian Space Web reports thatRead more

Czapek’s secret stainless steel (US)

Share on FacebookShare on Google+Tweet about this on TwitterShare on LinkedInPin on PinterestEmail this to someonePrint this page

One of the most versatile forms of stainless steel, which is also used in lower-priced watches, is SAE grade 304 (EN 1.4301), which comprises 18% chromium and 8% nickel. The most common grade used in luxury watches, however, is 316 or 316L, which in addition contains up to 2.5% molybdenum, giving it greater resistance to corrosion. As a notable exception, Rolex uses 904L stainless steel for its cases. This particular alloy also contains copper and has been favoured by Rolex since the 1980s because it takes a higher polish, even though it is more difficult to machine. 

To understand how special the stainless steel used in Czapek watches is, you first need a primer in the different types of stainless steel used in watches in general. First of all, let’s consider just what stainless steel is exactly. The term refers to a group of iron alloys that contain 10.5% chrome or more and 1.2% carbon or less. These alloys have a self-replenishing surface layer that gives a high level of protection Read more
