Scientists create titanium parts using additive technologies

Manufacturing products from titanium and its alloys using traditional methods remains a complex technological task that requires a lot of time and money. Scientists at South Ural State University have developed a new universal ...

South Africa is one step closer to processed titanium alloys

William Gregor, an amateur mineralogist and chemist, first discovered ilmenite—some black sand containing one of the world's lightest metals—in the UK in 1791. Four years later, this light metal was isolated and named ...

Robot arms with the flexibility of an elephant's trunk

Unlike conventional robot arms with hinged and swivel joints, new flexible arms being developed by Professor Stefan Seelecke and his research group at Saarland University are constructed using muscles made from shape-memory ...

Greener hydrogen from water

The idea of using hydrogen as the basis of a clean sustainable energy source, often termed a hydrogen economy, has been a topic of conversation for decades. Hydrogen fuel, for example, doesn't emit any carbon dioxide and ...

Aluminum on the way to titanium strength

NUST MISIS scientists have proposed a technology that can double the strength of composites obtained by 3-D printing from aluminum powder, and advance the characteristics of these products to the quality of titanium alloys: ...
