Nitinol Applications

Although many nitinol applications are not well-known to the public, some applications are quite routine and familiar. The spectacle frame made of Nitinol severely deformed and then returned to normal. Similarly, a few years ago, when mobile phone antennas were made of Nitinol, they could bend without breaking or permanently bending. Another superelastic application of […]

Machining processes of tungsten Ⅱ

Tungsten, or wolfram, is a chemical element with the symbol W and atomic number 74. The most important properties of tungsten are high melting point and high density. Meanwhile, the hardness is high and its ductility is poor to other refractory metals. All the properties make tungsten metal hard to be machined, here we will introduce […]

Magnetic characteristics of permanent magnetic materials

Magnetism is the basic property of matter as well as force, heat, electricity and light. Materials with ferromagnetism are usually called magnetic materials. The biggest characteristic of magnetic materials is the hysteresis behavior, that is, the magnetization M changes with the external magnetic field. When H returns from a certain state to zero, M still […]
