This video shows how Epner Technology deposited a 0.5 micron thick laser gold coating on a highly polished beryllium mirror for use on the Mars Orbiter.
This video demonstrates the Innov-X range of handheld x-ray fluorescence (XRF) analyzers and their important application for scrap metal recycling. The portable device can determine chemical composition of metals in just seconds. It also has an in-built database permitting alloy identification.
A video showing hardness testing being performed on a a tungsten ring and compared with hardness testing with platinum, titanium, white gold rings. Please remember not to try this on your wedding rings !!
Introducing the new Phenom benchtop electron microscope from FEI. With today's industry requiring higher quality control and speed, the Phenom can produce high resolution images from submicron to nanoscale in seconds. It as easy as using a digital camera. This video will show you how~~
A video clip from Finmetal showing the essential use of nickel in stainless steel, the diverse applications nickel has on our everyday life and nickel being one of the essential metal for industrial expansion in today's modern countries.
A detailed video demonstrating how artificial diamonds are produced including use of lasers.
This video demonstrates some basic properties of the combustion of magnesium metal.
A video showing a collection of available zirconium rings.
The video clips shows different types of "wedding rings" undergoing jigsaw blade test for their relative hardness. (Gold, vs, Titanium, vs platinum vs tungsten carbide rings)
Ever been asked what materials science is? If so, just send people to this apage for the answer. An interesting compilation put together by the staff and students at the Department of Materials Science at UNSW.
The ASPEX Metal Quality Analyzer (MQA) has for years, been at the forefront of inclusion analysis in investigative work to determine castability issues and improve product quality. The control of inclusions relies on accurate knowledge about the phase changes and compositional relation of them under various chemical and thermal conditions during processing. Given the direct link between the inclusion content and steel production process, manufacturers of steel demand an analyzer that can operate under adverse conditions.
This video from The Great Recovery, shows Dr Hywel Jones from the Materials and Engineering Research Institute at Sheffield Hallam University smashing the mobile phones in order to raise awareness of the internal components of mobile phones and the use of the elements.
The Bruker AXS Tracer Turbo SD, incorporating the silicon drift detector is demonstrated. It can analyze both ferrous alloys and light alloys, with this demomstration including a stainless steel and aluminium aloy. The instrument is suited to metals analysis, such as scrap metal sorting.
This video detail the proper setup for taking Raman measurements using the Ocean Optics Q65000 Spectrometer. Once setup is complete it takes you through the steps of performing a basic Raman measurement using a Ramen spectrometer.
A video showing the process and manufacturing of man made diamonds. The producer emulate the nature process of how diamonds are made in the environment. Extreme heat is used to form the diamond from the carb
The IH15a from Across International is a laboratory sized induction heater suited to melting, welding and surface heating of materials. It features a very compact size and digital controller that can control heating rate, soak time and cooling rate. It can be supplied with crucibles such as graphite or silica crucibles in alumina jackets.
The iPhone app from AZoM.com gives you the world of materials in the palm of your hand. It offers you a totally portable way to locate materials solutions, suppliers and products as well as providing you with the latest materials news, conveniently broken down into categories to suit various industry sectors.
In this video John Kelly and Dan Soisson from Spectro Analytical demonstrate the xSORT handheld x-ray fluorescence (XRF) analyzer. This portable unit is ideally suited to rapid throughput metals sorting and identification such as in scrap yards and stainless steel warehousing.
Have you ever wander how jewellers make 14, 10, 8 carat gold and different exotic colors of gold? This video clip show how jewellers manufacutre gold alloys by mixing pure gold with other metals to give different unique properties and colors of gold. By adding various alloys you can obtain different colors. For example to obtain white gold paladium is added.
This video demonstrate the chemical properties of tungsten and the everyday applications of tungsten in particularly the electrical applications of tungsten.
In this video from The Great Recovery, Maria Hanson an established Designer Maker and Reader in Metalwork and Jewellery at Sheffield Hallam University shows creative jewellery made from the e-Waste.
