Why Do We Prefer Grade 420 Stainless Steel?

We come to the final chapter of our stainless steel saga. We have already talked about the properties of this material, how to use industrial tools made with it, and what selection criteria should be followed. Today we talk about why we have selected Grade 420 stainless steel for the manufacture of our industrial tools. You want to know why? Keep reading!

Stainless-Steel (INOX) Tools: How to use them safely

Stainless steel is stainless, because it has such an amount of chromium in the alloy that, when oxidized, it generates an outer layer allowing to cover the entire tool. However, this has its limits. Read on to find out!

How to choose the best stainless steel?

There are various types of stainless steel, and they vary in resistance to corrosion. In principle, one might think that the more important aspect is that the more stainless the better. But in the world of industrial tools, when choosing which type of stainless steel is best, there are other factors to consider. Find out which ones.

Synchronous and asynchronous motors, how are they different?

A couple of weeks ago, we were talking about titanium tools as a safe means of working safely in environments where high magnetic fields exist. Among the places we mentioned in the previous post was synchronous motors. But what are synchronous motors? And how are they different from asynchronous? Read on:

What are the risks of working in mines?

Probably, the mining industry is experiencing a golden age thanks to the fact that, on the one hand, the skyrocketing price of raw materials is making some projects profitable, and on the other hand, the demand that the electrification of the car. However, there are risks that can have a direct impact on the health of workers. Read on to meet them!

Titanium tool: a safe means in environments with high magnetic fields

From an industrial tooling point of view, titanium has a number of properties that make it preferable for some industries, and which, in the case of using other steel alloys, may involve a high physical risk and economic cost

Trinity Spirit explosion: An example of the importance of maintenance

The Trinity Spirit exploded on February 2. The explosion was such that the ship ended up split in two, partly submerged in the water.

What is torque tightening and what are its advantages and disadvantages?

Torque tightening is an indirect method of approaching the voltage limit, and therefore optimal fixation is not ensured. However, its ease, speed and reduced cost make it the most used method of controlling bolted joints.

Tightening Methods and Its Physics

The optimum strength for each joint is determined by the function that it must perform, so the sizing, hardness and strength of the screws will depend on it.

What is the screw tightening? Why is its control important?

To ensure proper fixation of the elements during the service time required by each application, the threaded joining elements must be carefully sized, as they must withstand high clamping forces and static and dynamic stress.
