  • 1. Materials for Technical Use (II): Metal Department of Technology I.E.S. El Molinillo Guillena © Antonio Jesús Romero
  • 2. Metal Properties
    • Metal is a good conductor of heat and electricity
    • High mechanical endurance
    • High fusion temperature
    • Metal is a heavy material

    • It´s a tough material
    • Some of them have magnetic properties
    • It´s an easily recyclable material
    • It´s a ductile, malleable material
    Metal Properties
  • 4. Classification of Metals World Metal Production
    • Metals are classified in two groups:
    • Ferrous Metals : iron and its alloys.
    • Non-Ferrous Metals : metals that do not contain iron .
    • This is because iron is the most used metal in the world
  • 5. Ferrous Metals
    • Iron is an abundant metal.
    • Iron is fragile and brittle.
    • Iron rusts easily.
    • Iron has very good magnetic properties.
    Pure iron Due to his low endurance, pure iron is not used. So it´s mixed with a little amount of carbon obtaining ferrous alloys. How changes carbon the iron properties? A bigger amount of carbon in the ferrous alloy increases the hardness but decreases the tenacity, so the alloy becomes more fragile.
  • 6.
    • Soft Iron ( C<0,1%)
    It´s like pure iron. At first it was very used because it was easy to obtain. At present time it´s used to make electromagnet nucleus thanks to its very good magnetic property.
    • Soft, due to its low iron content.
    • Silvery colour.
    • Electric and electronic applications.
    Ferrous Metals: Ferrous Alloys
  • 7.
    • Steel ( 0,1%<C<2% )
    • It´s the most used ferrous alloy thanks to its good properties.
    • Ductile and malleable.
    • High mechanical endurance.
    • The amount of carbon increases hardness and fragility.
    Steel mixed with other metal increases endurance (vanadium) and becomes stainless (chrome and nickel). Ferrous Metals: Ferrous Alloys
  • 8.
    • Cast Iron ( 2%<C<5% )
    • Harder and more fragile than steel.
    • It has low ductility but it´s a malleable alloy with magnesium.
    • It melts more easily than steel.
    It´s used to make complicated parts by sand casting and to make hard tools like rasps. Ferrous Metals: Ferrous Alloys

    • Lightness and more endurance than pure aluminum.
    • This alloy is more resistant than each metal.
    • Cheaper than pure titanium parts.
    Non-Ferrous Metals: Alloys
  • 15. Metal Obtaining Most metals are in nature as minerals. Chalcosite: copper rich Pyrite: iron rich Hematite: iron rich Limonite: iron rich Bauxite: aluminum rich Pure gold
  • 16. Obtaining cast iron and steel Coal Iron ore Limestone Blast furnace Torpedo ladle Ladle Furnace Refining Furnace We can obtain cast iron from the melting of coal,iron ore and limestone at the blast furnace , then we carry it to the refining furnace using torpedo furnace and ladle furnace. In the refining furnace the amount of carbon to obtain steel decreases.
  • 17. Obtaining of metals by electolysis We use a high voltage electric current over the melted metal. Pure metal is attracted by the negative electrode (remember that metal atoms are positive). We can use this method to obtain metals like copper and aluminum.

  • 26. Molding and Metal Forming
    • Molding: Sand Casting
    Sand is used to make a mold and fill this with molten metal. It allows you to make complicated parts as the engine block of a car.
  • 27.
    • Lamination
    We use rolls that compress the metal to obtain sheets and metal profiles. Molding and Metal Forming
  • 28.
    • Stamping
    • Die-Cutting
    A metal sheet is compressed by a press to take the form of the mold. It´s cutting pieces of a metal sheet using a press. Molding and Metal Forming
  • 29.
    • Forge
    We use the fire and hammer over the anvil to shape the soft steel and get handmade pieces of metal. Anvil Molding and Metal Forming
