Introduction to Total Materia Integrator 16th May 2017
New Developments in Total Materia 6th June 2017
Total Materia has allowed us to solve in a definite way all problems we had for the search of alternate materials in foreign countries. Thanks to Total Materia we have issued real "international" specs for purchase of steels in foreign countries.
Total Materia remains the only tool which will be used for this purpose.

Sheet metal forming is one of the most significant manufacturing processes in industry today and is of particular importance in the automotive industry to drive advances in material technology and weight saving.
In typical EAF systems around 45% of input energy is lost through slag or off gas, the latter representing 70% of the complete loss of input energy.
Grain refinement is an established technique which basically reduces the grain size of the material with the direct intention to improve its finished properties or characteristics.
Hot tearing occurs primarily in the casting mold and can be attributed to thermally induced tensile stresses which occur as the molten metal cools and begins to contract.
