Enhance machinability of steel using Annealing procedure

Annealing: Annealing is the process of heating a metal to change its hardness and strength. When this procedure is done properly, metal reduces its cold working properties and becomes more flexible, stress-free. To obtain these properties, it is heated to temperature that is less than its melting point and then slowly frozen. Generally, Ferrite sub-critical

Glass Stronger and Tougher than Steel

A new damage-tolerant metallic glass, demonstrating a strength and toughness beyond that of any known material developed and tested by a collaboration of researchers with the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE)’s Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (Berkeley Lab) and the California Institute of Technology. In the world of materials, strength (the amount of force a substance
