Why it’s worth paying attention to the non-magnetic materials

Non-magnet metals are among the most valuable metals in the world.They are used in all sorts of things, from smartphones to solar panels.But unlike most metals, which are magnetically stable, non-metal materials tend to lose their magnetic properties over time, and are prone to cracking.For years, researchers have focused on studying non-metallic materials, hoping to…

N-metal analysis shows the first time a non-metal is used to cut an object

An analysis of the structure of the non-metallic alloy that made the famous razor blades of the 1970s shows it has a higher energy per unit area than a metal that can be used as a cutting tool.The new work was presented in a paper published in the journal Science by scientists at the University…

Why do non-Ferrous Metal (NFM) cutting tools use ferrous metal?

I was looking at the picture of the tool on the left, which uses a non-metallic blade and has a non ferrous alloy.I wondered what was the non ferric oxide that was used in the non- ferrous blade.The answer: ferrous oxide!Ferrous oxide is a non metal that is very useful for cutting non-machined metals like…

How to make a metal-cutting blade that doesn’t break

Reusable non-fiber materials that can be recycled, such as steel, are becoming increasingly popular as part of the increasingly affordable, sustainable energy revolution.The technology, which involves using a metal that’s a perfect conductor of electricity, can be applied to almost any material and can produce significant improvements in efficiency and power output.The cutting and welding…

How to cut and crush the non-fiber metals you need to build a ‘world’s best football stadium’

On the eve of the NFL season, the NFL’s metal recycling program is in full swing.The league is making sure to make every pound of steel, aluminum and titanium it recycles non-hazardous and recyclables.That’s a huge deal in an age of a growing demand for sustainable materials.The steel, for example, can be used to build…

How to use non- ferrous metals in your own home

A Canadian scientist has devised a method for making metal from non-fertilised eggs, and said it could be a major advance in recycling.“There are some challenges with using non-flourised eggs to make metals, and I think this is one of the first ways we have seen of using non fertilised eggs in a way that…

How to find a non-metal cut

“I was just like, ‘Oh, no,’” says Mike, who used to be a metal detectorist and worked in the chemical industry before joining the military in 2007.“But I had a big interest in metal, so I started digging.”He found something that would give him pause: metal in its purest form, without any contaminants.Mike and his…

Why the US may need to stop exporting non-fiber materials, a new report says

A report from the US Congressional Research Service has found that the country is using up all of its non-metal recyclables, and it doesn’t have enough non-metals to meet its environmental needs.“The US has about 5,000 tons of non-mesh scrap metal and another 4,000 tonnes of nonmetal scrap,” said John Rafferty, senior fellow at the…

When will it be OK to use non-fibrous metals in your body?

Experts have been debating the use of non-machinery metals for the past 20 years, but this year a breakthrough in a new lab-developed process promises to change all that.The lab, called the Nanophase Bioelectronics Nanoparticle, could potentially revolutionise the way we manufacture and use non-“ferrous” metals.This is because, while they can be used in the…

When you think metal, think steel

A steel worker in New Jersey is making history when he’s earning $40,000 for each steel bar that he uses to cut steel in his mill.The man has become the first person in the United States to earn more than $1 million for cutting steel in a single year.He is a steel mill owner in…
