Steel for Art: From Design to Installations

Steel is emerging fast as a choice for building design equipment – a garnish for furniture and artworks. It has become a frequent choice among artists, designers and buyers. The limits of technology thus are being pushed to give body to artistic expressions. Fitted interiors too like sinks, curtain rods, art pieces are increasingly becoming

Indian Budget’s Impact on Mining and Metal Companies

Metal and mining companies in India have had it all: with rising costs of raw materials, incessant delays in execution of projects, and controlled demand these companies have seen bad days. However, the new government of India brings in hope with the new budget that was presented some days back. Investment is one area that

Favourable Market Trends for the Steel Industry

There has been a ray of hope, in the steel industry as market forces steer it away from the horrible abyss of recession, gradually. Several factors are contributing—but there are also many constant, major issues that the industry will need to address if it wishes to see constant, long-run growth. In the forthcoming year, the

Steel Sees New Turn: Greater Quality Without Misfortune of Malleability

In steel making, two attractive qualities – quality and flexibility – have a tendency to be conflicting: Stronger steel is less malleable, and more pliable steel is not as solid. Engineers at Brown University, three Chinese colleges, and the Chinese Academy of Sciences have indicated that when chambers of steel are wound, their quality is

Steel for a Better Environment

Let’s Build an Emission Free World and an Eco-Friendly Environment The usual way of making steel gives rise to a tremendous amount of green house gases that trap heat into the atmosphere and prevent it from escaping. However, a new method of steel production that MIT has invented could revolutionize steel-making ending up producing a cheaper and

Demand for Steel to Double by 2020?

Amid signs of a global economic recovery, world steel producers are seeing a growing demand for steel. At their annual industry meeting in Sao Paulo, they predicted stronger markets but also fiercer competition. According to an industry report released at the annual meeting of global steelmakers in Sao Paulo, Brazil, on Monday, global steel consumption

Enhanced Resources in EAF for Steel Making

Electric Arc Furnace (EAF) is a default phase in the process of making steel. Over years EAF has evolved dynamically and adopted efficient, competitive and sustainable methods in the process and the global output of steel from EAF is increasing. Many countries are on the verge of adapting EAF that cannot make iron by the

Cut the Steel

Steel as a sword cuts ‘many’, if not ‘any’ thing. So it means that, Steel is a hardest and toughest material, and only then it can cut anything else. Hence, the device or procedure to cut a hard material should ‘cut the mustard’. Several procedures are already in use, depending on the requirement and type

Heat in Steel

Heat treatment and casting are the salient processes in Steel making. Heat is a part of the process from the point when raw material is washed till the final outcome is moulded to a desired shape. If casting is given a rating of 3 points on a scale of 5, Heat treatment in the entire

Extractive Metallurgy in Steel

Metallurgy is a domain of metallic elements physical and chemical behavior and a whole, it is technology of metals that is applied to practical use. There are various types in this metallurgy process that are applied at various stages or purposes. Extractive metallurgy is the practice of removing or separating valuable metals from an ore
