Stainless steels are a suitable materials for many applications where both the strength of steel and corrosion resistance are required. It is resistant to corrosion, staining and stainless steel can be rolled into sheets, plates, bars, wire, and tubing for a variety of applications. Below you can find news on the application of stainless steels in a broad variety of industries, such as architecture, oil and gas, shipbuilding and heat exchangers. If you wish to include your newsrelease on Stainless Steel World Americas and email newsletter, please feel free to contact us.

How Stainless Steel Became the Material of Choice For Modern Bridges

In the USA, a ferritic-martensitic dual-phase grade has found favor, but duplex grades are being assessed and more frequently applied.

Corrosion-Inhibiting Coating Can Be Peeled Off After Use

Applications include temporary protection of metal parts during shipment, storage of large metal equipment, masking of parts during large painting jobs, and protection of nonporous surfaces (such as windows and doors) from scratches and nicks on the construction site.

Torch Made for Welding Thin, Conductive Sheet Metal

The torch can weld stainless steel to stainless steel or conductive materials such as copper to nickel or stainless steel, making it suitable for applications such as tack welding for medical devices and battery tab welding.

A Welcome from the Chairman of Heat Exchanger World Americas Conference & Expo 2024

"As we anticipate meeting one another this October, we invite you to join us at the NRG Center, with your ideas and topics focused on heat exchanger costs, design, performance, maintenance and efficiency in the oil and gas industry. I am confident that there is something for every professional from all levels of expertise at the Heat Exchanger World Americas Conference and Expo 2024. I am looking forward to seeing you all there!" 

Heat Exchanger Tubes In Super Austenitic Stainless Steels

In recent months, there have been challenges faced by supply chain to procure these types of materials which have seen wide fluctuations in prices, and long leadtimes.

Compact Weld Camera Monitors TIG, Plasma Processes

With a 17-mm diameter, compact design, and seamless integration options, the camera offers clear monitoring of TIG tips, melt pools, weld beads, seams, parent material, and wire feeding.

3-Axis Servo-Driven Mill Combines Professional-Grade Capabilities

Equipped with a 4HP, 10K RPM BT30 spindle (with a maximum of 6HP), it delivers torque for cutting through various materials and offers enough spindle speed to take advantage of modern carbide tooling. Additionally, the mill is thru-spindle coolant (TSC) ready.

Corrosion with Purpose: Electrochemical Machining Parts, Atom-By-Atom

This unique process is known as electrochemical machining (ECM), as well as its more advanced version called pulsed electrochemical machining (PECM).

Module Delivers Multiple Options for Pipe Welding

The welding module can be used for materials from low-alloy to high-strength plain, stainless, and duplex steels, as well as for aluminum, manganese, copper, brass, and titanium.

SMAW Machine Also Delivers TIG Features

The operator can weld up to 5/32-in. electrodes (6010/7018) with the unit or choose a dedicated 6010 mode for cellulosic stick electrodes.
