The U.S. Department of Energy wants new ideas to develop the next generation of manufacturing technologies for industry. Here's how we're helping.
A coating can be applied to a variety of different materials, usually involving an adhesive layer being applied to a finished product. An example of this is plastic drinks bottles; the coating in this case is the label which has one side coated in adhesive, and the other side printed with the product imagery (decorative coatings). When applying a coating a requirement is that the coating is of equal thickness all round, and in cases where the coating doesn’t cover the whole of the object, accuracy in its application. The coating itself may be applied in any state, be it liquid, solid or gas.
Material coating is a skill required in a multitude of industries, and may be applied by hand or by use of machinery. By hand, the use of a correct brush can create an even layer, while industrial methods may proffer the ‘web’ method, or ‘roll to roll’ method. In this case the substrates begin, and end, in a roll. Material coating has its uses in fabric production, cookware, photography, waterproofing and insulation among many others. From non-stick pans to iron-on fabric interfacing, the uses of material coatings are diverse.
Material coatings can add as USP to a product, and ensure its longevity. This allows a brand to build up a good reputation, increase number of repeat customers, and also charge more for their products.Hire Materials Engineers

I need to know what specs I need to make a "stem wall". I am building a Quonset structure (30' wide x 50' long), 18ga steel. There will be a snow load in the area of 70psf. The stem wall will be 5' tall. I would like to know what is required (thickness, rebar, wire mess, etc) if I use concrete for the wall. I would like a comparison for what would be required if I have a e...
Need advice on the best Pig Iron to use for making Cast Iron Cookware. It's a specialist field. I need someone who understands metallurgy and the process of pouring cast iron directly from smelting high grade iron ore.

Project 1: Design a sour water stripping unit to remove ammonia and hydrogen sulfide from sour water streams. You can include two to three sour water streams and assume they are coming from different unit operations at different flow rate. Mix all these three streams using a mixing unit (this is not required, still please add this unit if you can). Store the fluid mixture from the mixing unit in a...
