Lightweighting is a concept in the auto industry about building cars and trucks that are less heavy as a way to achieve better fuel efficiency and handling. The main guiding ideology of automobile weight reduction is to ensure the steady improvement of performance and to design various assembly components in an energy-efficient manner to continuously […]
3D printing technology is also called additive manufacturing, and the metal devices produced by this technology are somewhat similar to the powder gold treatment technology we currently use, all of which are built on metal powder, and the difference is that the material powder is not bonded by sintering, but is formed by “printing” the […]
Titanium was used for bicycles and wheelchair frames in the mid-1980s. Bicycle frames There are now nearly 50 companies producing titanium bicycles. Ninety percent of the world’s titanium frames come from several original equipment manufacturers (OE), and the remaining 10% is produced by the United States itself. The United States is already the largest producer […]
Nickel-titanium alloy, also known as nitinol, is a binary alloy made up of nickel and titanium, these two elements are roughly equal in the atomic percentage (Nitinol 55 and Nitinol 60 are very common). There are two different crystal structures in nickel-titanium alloy due to the change of temperature and mechanical stress, which called austenitic […]
Titanium has the advantages of low density, high specific strength and good corrosion resistance. Titanium used in automobiles can greatly reduce the quality of the body, reduce the fuel consumption, improve the working efficiency of the engine, improve the environment and reduce the noise. However, the expensive price of titanium alloy in the automotive industry […]
