1960’s Low Alloy Casting Weld Repair with Microstructure Replication

High pressure, low-alloy steel casings produced with 1960’s casting technology proved to be difficult to weld repair, with the first two attempts failing. Microstructural evaluation through replication and chemical analysis over the whole casting, enabled engineers to design a successful weld repair to refurbish the castings and return them to service. This case study presents the difficulties identified, the investigations done and the solutions implemented to achieve a successful weld repair

Fundamentals of Metallurgy and Additive Manufacturing

Metals and alloys are used in the greatest variety of applications of all engineering materials. As such it is essential for those involved in manufacturing, engineering, and construction to have an understanding of what metals (ferrous and non-ferrous) are, how they behave, and why they behave differently than ceramics, glass, and plastics. It is also important to understand how they can be made stronger, how they can be shaped by casting, forging, forming, and how these processes along with heat treatment can alter properties. This course provides important basic knowledge to those who are not metallurgists.

VIC | TAS Branch - 24th Annual Technologists' Picnic

Whilst product categories over time show the “tug” of fashion and, these days, “influencers”, the design of bicycles intended to be used for travel should respect the 130+ years of work that has gone before. There are product innovations but, in this tiny category, it is historical knowledge and practical experience that come way ahead of fashion and marketing.
