Metallurgy & Materials Handling
Metallurgy is the science and technology applied to the production of metals and the engineering of metal components for the manufacturing industries. This involves the processing of ores to extract the metal and the mixture of metals and other elements to produce alloys. Metallurgical processes invariably require extremely rugged material handling systems to facilitate everyday operational activities. Automated material handling systems therefore need to be able to withstand the hostile environments associated with the industry and have the ability to withstand extreme heat, sparks, conductive dust and metal splatter.
Reliability is also essential in metallurgical engineering because any unscheduled downtime can lead to wastage and lost productivity expense. Typical material handling systems for metallurgy include sampling, storage, weighing, feeding and transportation equipment. High-tech sampling and control systems are critical to the application of controlled metallurgical reactions. At Process Industry Forum, we keep our finger on the pulse to bring you the latest technological advancements in metallurgy and materials handling. We make it our goal to keep you fully informed about the latest product fabrication, machining, assembly and casting products on the market.
