Hardness, durability and strength are among the top vital mechanical values for industrial steel products, determining

Hardness, durability and strength are among the top vital mechanical values for industrial steel products, determining the physical integrity of a product when subjected to applied forces. The majority of steel alloys are innately strong with good resistance to mechanical deformation, but products that occasionally or routinely experience scuffing or impacts have to be manufactured from alloys with improved hardness values for better abrasion resistance. Increasing the hardness of a material typically minimizes its vulnerability to friction. However, this can then reduce the toughness of the steel and increase its susceptibility to fracture. High hardness steels are additionally usually less ductile and cannot be as easily formed as alternative industrial steel products. This article will look at the effect of toughness and hardness on the abrasion resistance of various steel products. Industrial steel’s hardness is quantified by the Brinell scale (26 – 600), which measures the resistance of a material to impacting forces. Steel alloys at the upper end of the scale are some of the hardest engineered metals globally, offering better resistance to heavy-wearing at the cost of duct...

MacGyver: The 10 Best Things He’s Built From Nothing

For fans of ‘80s TV, there isn’t a more innovative hero than MacGyver. The scientific genius/special forces soldier/all around good guy works as an agent for the Phoenix Foundation. His adventures involve everything from environmental protection to cold war spy missions. Mac doesn’t believe in guns, he uses his wits, his trusty swiss army knife and whatever he finds lying around to escape the dangerous situations he often finds himself in. This means he usually has to build some crazy contraption to save the day. It’s time to return to the ‘80s with the 10 best things MacGyver built from nothing. We didn’t include all the times he made a bomb out of random stuff, because that could have been a whole separate list. During the season one episode “To Be a Man,” Mac travels to Afghanistan to recover classified information from a downed satellite. Unfortunately for him, he runs into Russian soldiers and must make a quick escape. He uses the crashed pieces of the satellite to make a hang glider that gets him away from the enemy for a short time. Later in the episode Mac thwarts an attack by using a butane tank as a torpedo to defend himself and the family helping him. The hang glider...

Matrix 4 growing, making progress by ‘leaps and bounds’ logo-pn-color logo-pn-color

Injection molder Matrix 4 Inc. is prepping for growth, adding machinery and redefining what it means to play in manufacturing as it settles into its fifth year under owner Patricia Miller, the Woodstock, Ill.-based company’s CEO and self-styled visionary. “As we go into five years, we continue to kind of make that leaps and bounds of progress that we’re wanting to do, and at least validating that the strategy we put in place five years ago still seems to make sense, and it still makes it worthwhile to continue to move forward with the business,” Miller said in a phone interview. Miller took over the company in July 2014 from her grandfather, Raymond Wenk Sr., a tool and die maker who founded Matrix 4 — though, he opted for the Roman numeral IV — in 1976. The company molded various parts for the automotive and consumer products industries. Wenk died earlier this year, on April 27. He was 83. But much of his entrepreneurial spirit is now embraced by Miller, who is transitioning the company from old-school plastics manufacturing to what she calls a “design and manufacturing house.” “Five years ago, I said we wanted to be a design and manufa...

Cardi B Bought A $100,000 Necklace For Kulture Inspired By ‘Word Party’

Cardi B is building a jewelry collection for Kulture that will rival Cartier’s entire store, all before her daughter hits one years old. Cardi B bought $100,000 necklace for Kulture inspired by a Netflix show, making the diamond-encrusted chain weirdly child-appropriate. Cardi B and Offset bought the custom-made necklace in preparation of Kulture’s first birthday, which will be on July 10. According to TMZ, Cardi B commissioned celebrity jeweler Eliantte to create the piece. The white gold and diamond pendant was inspired by four characters on Netflix’s children’s TV show, Word Party. The cartoon happens to be Kulture’s favorite show, so it’s a sweet — albeit pricey — tribute to their daughter. The necklace features the four stars of the show in shiny enamel: Bailey, Franny, Kip and Lulu. They’re surrounded by an outline of diamonds, which then branches out into a diamond chain. This isn’t the first time that the “Money” rapper has dropped the price of a house on her daughter’s jewelry collection. In May 2019, Cardi B shared on Instagram that she dropped $80,000 worth of jewelry for Kulture. In a now-deleted Insta...

Networx: Roof types factsheet: Pros and cons of 10 popular materials – Lifestyle – The Independent

Are you looking to install a new roof this year? Jumpstart the project – prepare yourself with the facts on roofing materials before you even hire a contractor. Here’s a guide to pros and cons of 10 popular roof types. ABOUT: Most common of all roof types in the U.S. today, asphalt shingles are the roofing material on almost 80 percent of American homes. Asphalt saturates both sides of their paper or fiberglass base, which is then topped with a layer of mineral granules. Choose between the popular 3-tab asphalt shingle and the longer-lasting architectural shingle (also called “laminate shingles”). CONS: Only suitable for steeply sloping roofs. Don’t hold up well to severe temperature changes or intense, direct sunlight. Relatively short lifespan of about 20 years. PROS: Natural material. Has an attractive orange-brown color or may be dyed. Can be formed into a variety of decorative shapes. Relatively long lifespan of 40-plus years. CONS: Fire–resistant but not totally fireproof. Consider whether your building structure can bear the weight; you may need to have additional framing added. ABOUT: In the form of a single flat panel or shingles. Materials include al...

Slow poison: how Queensland government workers paid the price for fruit fly eradication | Environment

Special investigation: During the 1990s workers were told not to worry about breathing in the poison – but years later they suffer debilitating illnesses Outside the fumigation chambers it hung around, bonded to the tropical north Queensland air, amid the hottest November on record. When Sharman went home, and nursed his baby son to sleep, the odour of the gas was still there. “It would stick around on my clothes when I’d go home at night,” Sharman recalls. “A garlicky sort of smell. A specific smell, I’ve never smelled it before or since [but] it’s a smell you wouldn’t forget.” Sharman was unemployed in October 1995, when he heard about the discovery of the papaya fruit fly (Bactrocera papayae) in north Queensland and offered to help out. Within days he was on the government payroll, working in a makeshift fumigation tent near Innisfail, disinfesting fruit with ethylene dibromide (EDB). The fumigation chambers were converted PVC tents that routinely leaked. They had no exhaust vents. In the corner, sitting on an old milk crate, was an aluminium electric frypan. “You’d be handed the chemical … in a five-litre plastic container, unlabelled, like water. We used to pour … an amoun...

Review: Using the sun to charge your phone is getting easier

If you follow my reviews, you know I’m a geek for backup batteries, flashlights and anything with a solar panel, so when I received a box from Goal Zero with a few of its power products to review, I was in heaven. googletag.cmd.push(function() { googletag.display(‘div-gpt-ad-1449240174198-2′); }); I’ve previously reviewed a few of Goal Zero’s solar panel and rechargeable battery kits, but this time it sent two gadgets with multiple uses. They’re both very cool. Goal Zero is branching out into the flashlight and lantern business. The Torch 250 is a great utility light to have around the house. You may remember this light from my Christmas gift guide. I liked it so much that I decided a longer review was in order. The Torch 250 ($79.99, goalzero.com) also has a 70-lumen floodlight, which makes it great for lighting up a small area, perhaps under the hood of your car. I used it on trips to my attic. Both flashlight and flood have a high and low setting that cuts the light in half but doubles the run time. The Torch 250 can power the flashlight for seven hours at full power and 15 hours in reduced-power mode. The Torch 250′s battery can also...
