Wallwork Heat Treatment has commissioned a new 800-kg-capacity furnace for the processing of aluminum and magnesium products. The furnace provides variable heat treatment for cast, forged, wrought, or fabricated components from single items of up to 2 m3 to batches of components as small as 0.5 mm diameter. The firm’s core business remains the thermal processing and surface coating of high-value components, including those for the aerospace and motorsport industries. The nonferrous furnace is equipped to use a variety of quenchants and can achieve a rapid quench time of less than 10 s. Very small pressed or cast parts can be processed effectively.

Researchers from Purdue University are studying the fundamental mechanisms behind a method that uses electrical fields to enhance ceramics-sintering processing, which could aid R&D of rechargeable lithium-ion batteries and fuel cells. The research also could shed light on a phenomenon called electromigration, which can affect the performance of electronic devices.

Industrial aluminum slabs are typically produced by blending small amounts of copper or manganese in a reservoir of molten aluminum that is rapidly cooled, a process known as direct-chill casting. Variations in the way these elements solidify can yield uneven results that weaken the final product.
