Ural researchers work on new metal rolling techniques

17 Jun '15
Scientists in the Urals have come up with new technology that is believed to pave the way for new methods of plastic deformation to produce much stronger nanostructured metal sheets, the regional news agency Uralinform reported.

The project is led by Konstantin Vdovin, the head of the foundry and material science chair at the Magnitogorsk State Technical University, and his colleague Prof. Alexander Pesin from the universitys Pressure treatment of metals chair. Both are reported to have received government support, each having a $280,000 grant.

According to the source, the new solution is extremely vital for Magnitogorsk Steel, one of the national and global players in metallurgy currently seeking to upgrade its metal rolling division. It is expected to help boost the strength and plasticity of long-sized products considerably.

The grants will be backing the developers for three years; with evident breakthroughs demonstrated, financial support will be extended for two more years, the source said. The funds will reportedly be used to purchase lab equipment and special software.
