Metallurgical and materials engineering

Metallurgical and materials engineering is an interdisciplinary science and engineering practice that determines the relationship between the changing properties of all materials depending on the production conditions and covers all branches of engineering. Many concepts such as plastic forming, joining technologies such as welding and riveting, surface technologies such as heat treatment and coating, nanomaterials, polymers, ceramics and casting are among the study topics of metallurgical and materials engineering.

As CPS PRESSFORM, we intensively use the power of metallurgical and materials engineering in the industrial field to determine the relevant parameters of feasibility studies carried out during sheet metal forming, welded manufacturing, cataphoresis coating technologies, product designs and mould manufacturing.

Our feasibility studies, which started with the determination of the behaviours of the mechanical values such as yield, tensile, coefficient of hardening, toughness, resilience, etc., which are the main parameters of plastic forming methods after the examination of the metallurgical structures of sheet materials, and completed with the realisation of simulation studies, the creation of processes and designs, continue with the follow-up of the machining and casting processes of the moulds with our engineering infrastructure, as well as the organisation and follow-up of the processes of improving the surface properties of steels with heat treatment and coating and surface treatments.

As a result of these studies, increasing the welded joining capability of the products obtained by shaping from moulds and providing appropriate fixture and robot automation with welding simulations and processes are also processes that are examined and designed under the title of welding metallurgy. The mechanical structures of the intermetallic phases and welded areas are optimised by examining microscopic dimensions and determining the morphological structure of the areas under the influence of heat, and as a result of the process, the strength and geometry qualities demanded by the customer are achieved. After welding, many tests such as liquid penetration, ultrasonic inspection and tensile tests are evaluated within the framework of the principles of material engineering and presented to the end user.

The determination of the corrosion behaviour of materials depends on the determination of their chemical affinity and the chemical understanding of the relationship between medium and material and material and material. Corrosion behaviour and corrosion prevention are among the main fields of study of chemistry and metallurgical and materials engineering, and cataphoresis coating technology has reached an intensive research and development area in the automotive industry. In cataphoresis coating technology, it is aimed to increase the corrosion resistance of assembled or individual materials by means of anodic and cathodic reactions and to provide aesthetic appearance. The reactions in these processes enable the creation of suitable coating baths as a result of determining the mechanical and chemical properties of the materials. The close working principle of materials engineering with chemistry helps us to understand the reactions and create optimum conditions, and the parts completed in the manufacturing process are ready to be delivered to the customer after having an aesthetic resistance against corrosion.
