Casting is one of the oldest and most popular manufacturing processes for metals, but could eventually be displaced by additive manufacturing (AM). Costs for AM are continuing to decrease while material performance and the number of available materials continue to increase. For small production runs with long lead times, it is possible additive manufacturing is preferred solutionRead more

Copper-nickel alloys are often used in shipbuilding for applications such as tanks, seawater and freshwater piping, and numerous other structures. Copper-nickel pipe joints are typically welded with manual gas tungsten arc welding; however, inherently slow travel speeds and low deposition rates impede productivity. The implementation of pulsed gas metal arc welding (GMAW-P) could yield significantRead more
