The Science of Diffusion Bonding or Joining together Dissimilar Metals

Metal diffusion bonding is an essential joining method for achieving a high-purity interface when two similar metals require superior structural integrity. The process involves applying high temperature, and pressure to metals mated together in a hot press causes the atoms on solid metallic surfaces to intersperse and bond.

Welding Automation ROI and Part Quality

From automotive production lines to shipbuilding, robotic arms, and the software that runs them, welding automation has played an important role in producing increasingly complex parts in shorter periods of time.

Reducing Complexity in Assembly Equipment

In this podcast, John Derry, senior application engineer at Promess, talks to SME Media contributing editor Michael Anderson about reducing complexity in assembly equipment. Derry discusses how assembly systems may become unnecessarily complex--and how that complexity can reduce quality and increase costs. Derry goes on to describe effective ways of addressing these issues and to reduce and even eliminate unnecessary complexity.

Focusing on the Workforce

As the 2022 SME president, I hope to build on the successes of my predecessors with a particular emphasis on workforce development and especially the workforce itself.
