Porous metallic tooling may improve the productivity and quality of injection molded plastic parts
13 February, 2007
Traditional methods of dealing with the venting problem have had limited effect. Trapped gases still cause quality problems such as burning, produced by compressed gases that impede the flow of molten resin in a cavity pocket, and short shots, caused by low injection pressure and /or gases trapped in pocket areas of the tool.
New stainless for fasteners combines corrosion resistance, high hardness and cold formability
12 February, 2007
Hardenable stainless steel alloys are a common choice for manufacturers that cold form high strength stainless steel fasteners. These alloys, however, have limitations. While the hardenable stainless grades have the strength needed for intended applications, they have lacked either the formability or the corrosion resistance of the non-hardenable alloys.

Heading hints: About cold heading
13 May, 2006
Carpenter Technology Corporation, whose Specialty Alloys Operations produces hundreds of stainless steels and specialty alloys, published the booklet 'Heading Hints, A Guide to Cold Forming Specialty Alloys' to suggest proper cold-forming fabrication techniques. Request a free copy of 'Heading Hints.' Although at one time it was felt cold heading techniques were somewhat limited to ductile materials with low work hardening rates, that is no longer the case. With today's more advanced equipment, techniques and tooling, higher strength materials like stainless steels and high temperature alloys are routinely being cold headed. A number of stainless steels are produced with modified compositions to provide lower work hardening rates.
Major producer of aerospace fasteners makes dramatic gains by changing coating for its heading wire
12 May, 2006

This new stainless was developed to provide the fastener industry with an alloy that has an improved combination of properties over alloys commonly used today. It can be considered for a variety of fastener applications including sheet metal screws, self-drilling construction fasteners, and other various bolts and fasteners exposed to atmospheric conditions.
New hope for the machine shop or department that is locked into a stainless steel
08 May, 2006
There's new hope for the machine shop or department that is locked into a stainless steel that is just right for the part it is making except for one shortcoming. It has poor, profit-draining machinability. Valve components machined by G. W. Lisk from Carpenter Micro-Melt Type 431 FM stainless steel and from Carpenter Project 70+ 15Cr-5Ni stainless for high-temperature applications. G. W. Lisk Co., Inc., Clifton Springs, N.Y., for example, found a highly productive solution to that dilemma. Machinability had been a problem with two different alloys specified for two critical parts it had been making for use in high-temperature applications.

World's fastest offshore racing boat back in the water with new high-strength stainless propeller shaft
28 January, 2000
For seventy-eight year old Howard Arneson, slicing through ocean swells in a powerful racing boat at speeds in excess of 100 mph is a piece of cake. He's most likely spent more time driving at those speeds than anyone in boating history. When he throttles up to 130 mph or more, it's still a ho-hum experience for this living legend in boating. Even at that impressive speed, the man who invented the famous Arneson surface drive propulsion system yearns for more thrust. His wish has been granted. Arneson has now reached 175 mph piloting the fastest offshore racing boat in the world. His own 46-ft. Skater is a new generation catamaran powered by a 4500 hp Lycoming gas turbine similar to that giving flight to a U. S. Army Chinook helicopter.

New project 7000 stainless type 416 offers significant machinability improvements
18 January, 2000
A lot of conscientious listening led Carpenter to development of Project 7000 stainless Type 416, the newest alloy in the Project 7000 series introduced to the global metalworking industry in late 1995. Also critical to the process was exhaustive testing both here at Carpenter and in the field to make sure we had created the alloy desired. Project 7000 stainless Type 416 is a hardenable, straight-chrome alloy that meets all the specifications for stainless Type 416... but , in the annealed condition, machines similarly to Carpenter stainless No. 5F. Stainless No. 5F is a variation of Type 416 stainless that is essentially non-hardenable.
