Resistance-based Sintering: A Breakthrough in Metal Consolidation Technology

Resistance-based sintering is a highly effective method for consolidating metal powders that combines the use of axial pressure with a flowing, high-intensity current without the need for atmospheric chambers. EWI began developing this technique a couple of years ago in an effort to replace spark plasma sintering. Our team made use of its considerable resistanceRead more

Understanding Analytical Modeling of Thermal Excursions for Continuous Joining Processes

Integrated computational materials engineering (ICME) is an ever-growing field of study providing tools that can be directly applied to a range of manufacturing processes. Analytical modeling frameworks for assessing thermal excursions comprise a key element of welding ICME..  A useful subset of these frameworks can be employed to understand thermal excursions in welding and joining.Read more

Predicting Springback in Sheet Metal Forming

Emerging materials such as high-strength aluminum alloys, advanced high-strength steels (AHSS), and GEN3 steel have been increasingly applied in sheet metal forming components. These materials are known to have unique elastic and plastic material behaviors which create new challenges for engineers and designers. One of the behaviors is springback. Springback challenges include difficulties predicting, controlling,Read more

A Streamlined System to Capture High-speed Video and Process Data for Manufacturing Applications

Combining video with data acquisition programs can deliver a highly sophisticated tool for diagnosing potential problems and making adjustments while fabrication is in process. There are existing high-speed camera (HSC) and data acquisition (DAQ) systems that have been custom-built, but to-date these have been cumbersome to operate and commercially unsupported. EWI has developed a new,Read more
