Stainless Steel World magazine is a leading international magazine on stainless steels and corrosion resistant alloys (CRAs), published ten times per year. The editorial content strongly focuses on end user experiences and practical applications. In addition to technical articles every issue contains reports from major end users and features projects in a variety of industries such as oil & gas, chemical and petrochemical. Throughout the year the editorial programme has special issues featuring tubes & pipes, cladding, offshore, chemical process industry, welding & fabrication, 13Cr stainless steels, titanium, nickel alloys, pulp & paper and duplex stainless steels.
Keep up to date with the latest news in the special news section. Every day, the news department mobilises its world wide network and searches the web to find out the latest developments in the field of business, management, contracts, materials, products, etc.
This section offers an insight into future international projects where corrosion resistant alloys will be much in use, offering plenty of business opportunity.
Interviews with materials specialists around the world. We ask them about their CRA problems and what solutions have worked best in their processes. Sharing information in this way with colleagues can be a very effective way of disseminating knowledge to the benefit of all.
In-depth technical papers written or co-written by operating companies describing commercially viable new technologies and/or case histories of successful applications, backed by data. Topics include tubes & pipes, cladding, offshore, chemical process industry, welding & fabrication, 13Cr stainless steels, titanium, nickel alloys, pulp & paper and duplex stainless steels.
Ever wondered who your peers are? In this series of articles we introduce to you some of the material experts and corrosion specialists and reveal who is doing what in the corrosion community.
- Mannesmann Stainless Tubes: Investing in partners & innovation to further growth
With a global presence and brand recognition in almost every market demanding high-quality tubes, Mannesmann Stainless Tubes follows a strategy of continual re-investment to achieve ongoing growth and innovation. Not content to simply enjoy its success in the international marketplace, the company is boldly expanding by embracing partnerships and joint ventures, in addition to strategic acquisitions that allow it to venture into new, high-value markets.
- REGIONAL REPORT: Africa: growth is fast, but lopsided
“Africa rising” became something of a buzz phrase a few years ago. It is true the continent is hanging and growing dramatically, but the process is uneven and chronic problems such as draught, disease, rural poverty, poor infrastructure, wealth inequality and local conflicts persist. Nevertheless, from agriculture to mining, infrastructure, transport and – last but not least – oil/gas and petrochemicals, the continent provides many opportunities for stainless steel suppliers.
- DIGITALIZATION: Worlds’ biggest virtual materials warehouse
thyssenkrupp Materials Services is making rapid advances with its digital transformation: the Group’s materials experts are digitizing their entire range and consolidating it in the world’s biggest virtual warehouse. With more than 3.5 million square meters of storage space at 271 operating sites around the world, Materials Services now offers round-the-clock access to more than 150,000 products and services through its new omnichannel structure, enabled by a powerful, self-developed AI (Artificial Intelligence) solution.
- POWER GENERATION: Power generation to undergo radical change by 2050
A report released by Bloomberg New Energy Finance (BNEF) in June claims that about half the world’s power will be generated by wind and solar resources by 2050. Meanwhile power generation from coal will drop more than 70% from today’s levels, according to research from energy analysts in the New Energy Outlook 2018 report.
- QUALITY CONTROL: Predicting periodic defects – avoiding dips in quality
Periodic surface defects caused by defective rolls have a significant impact on the quality of strip steel. New technology offers a way to detect defects with 100% reliability.
- MATERIALS: Economical alternative for engineering firms
The development of VDM Alloy 31Plus® has resulted in a material that is easier to process than its predecessor, offering advantages for apparatus engineering firms and final users.
- WELDING: Clarification over tungsten electrodes for TIG/GTAW welding
The tungsten arc welding concept, originally introduced as a practical tool in 1950, is now established as the most versatile technique for producing fusion welds to the highest quality standards.
- MEETING POINT: Duplex World Seminar & Summit sneak preview
This year Duplex World take place in Düsseldorf, Germany at the centrally located Van der Valk Airport Hotel. Read the advance conference program and learn how this event can boost your business network.
- WELDING: Orbital TIG welding – when quality is the primary concern
When high-quality welds are required, orbital TIG welding is the ideal technology for tubeto-tube or tube-to-tube sheet welding applications. With or without filler wire, this is a stable, reliable process that can be used on a wide range of materials such as carbon steel, stainless steel, titanium and nickel and aluminium alloys.
- MEETING POINT: Strong CRA programme at NACE Italia
From 27 to 29 May, over 500 corrosion engineers gathered in Genoa, Italy, for the second corrosion event organised by NACE Milano Italia Section and NACE European Area.
- INNOVATION: Hard, corrosion-resistant, optimized for machining
Hardness, corrosion resistance and impact strength are determinate factors in the lifecycle costs of wearing parts made of steel bar such as valve seats, bending guides and nozzles for abrasive liquids. The material’s machinability, however, is just as relevant for quality and cost effectiveness.
- INNOVATION: ISSF award winners
During its annual conference held in Shanghai in May this year, the International Stainless Steel Forum (ISSF) announced the winners of Awards in the categories Best New Technology and Best New Development.
- COMMUNITY: Celebrating 40 years in special steels
Hearing about an anniversary, SSW’s Mrs. Vera Solís and Mr. Erik Schoppema travelled to Bilbao, Spain, to talk to Tecnymat’s Mr. José Miguel Arranz about his company’s past, present and future.
