Engineering Materials

Every issue of Engineering Materials includes a mix of regular sections and feature articles covering composites, polymers and plastics, metals and alloys. Bringing its readers the latest in material developments and innovation, the editorial approach starts with the process of materials selection, moves through design implications and benefits to potential new applications and products. It then considers manufacturing and process considerations before looking at the recycling and end of life issues.

Engineering Materials’ circulation is derived from MA Business’s market leading database. This database has coverage of all manufacturing and design sites within the UK and is updated continuously by our specialist data research team.

If you are trying to influence design or production engineers responsible for purchasing and specifying materials and materials process, then Engineering Materials is your ‘must have’ partner. If your plans incorporate display advertising, more complicated projects such as gatefold covers or bellybands, or if you require assistance in design, writing and layout of advertorial, Engineering Materials has the options to suit your marketing strategy and your budget.

With Engineering Materials’ editorial experience, creative routes to market and a circulation of 15,000 key decision makers, no one understands materials better or is in a better position to help you fulfil your company’s marketing aims.

Processing glass like a polymer

Published: 22 May 2018

Pure quartz glass is highly transparent and resistant to thermal, physical, and chemical impacts. These are optimum prerequisites for use in optics, data technology or medical engineering. For efficient, high-quality machining, however, adequate processes are lacking. Scientists from Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT) say they have developed a forming technology to structure quartz glass like a polymer.

Controlling the properties of graphene transistors with pressure

Published: 21 May 2018

An international team of researchers claims to have developed a technique to manipulate the electrical conductivity of graphene with compression, bringing the material closer to being a viable semiconductor for use in electronic devices.

Manmade bio-material outperforms steel and spider silk

Published: 18 May 2018

A team, led by Daniel Söderberg from the KTH Royal Institute of Technology in Stockholm, claims to have used DESY’s (Deutsches Elektronen-Synchrotron) X-ray light source PETRA III to produce the strongest bio-material ever made. The artificial and bio-degradable cellulose fibres (CNF) are stronger than steel and even spider silk, which is usually considered the strongest bio-based material.

3D printed metallic glass alloys

Published: 23 March 2018

North Carolina State University researchers have created amorphous metal, or metallic glass, alloys using 3D printing technology. This, the researchers say, opens the door to a variety of applications, such as more efficient electric motors, better wear-resistant materials, higher strength materials, and lighter weight structures.
