Advanced high-strength steel, the newest, lightest steel invented, is aiming to hold off aluminum’s rise as the metal of choice for an auto industry in the midst of major changes. Lightweight aluminum has chipped away at steel’s use in vehicles as fuel efficiency standards have risen. Now steelmakers are fighting back.
In August 2018, The National Association of Manufacturers’ (NAM) Manufacturing Institute found that 80 percent of manufacturers were having trouble finding enough employees to fill open jobs. By using training programs already in place, the association was able to solve that problem, and another problem simultaneously.

High-Speed Axis Synchronization Technology – The Newest Innovation Redefining Gear Manufacturing
High-speed synchronization technology has reshaped standard gear manufacturing by producing parts with more accuracy, less time, and less cost. Built into Toyoda's Gear Skiving Machining Centers, this innovative technology takes five processes, traditionally spread across five separate machines, and integrates them into one compact machining center.

The Iron-Carbon phase diagram allows us to estimate the microstructure under non-equilibrium conditions. In this column, we build on those concepts and discuss the Isothermal Transformation or Time-Temperature-Transformation curves. These curves are very important to start predicting the microstructure for a given alloy.
