Tool And Die Technology

The word metal comes from the Greek m├ętallon, which means mine. In fact, only a few metals (gold, silver, copper and platinum) are found in nature in their metallic form. All the others are mixed together with other elements and are found in the form of minerals, from which they will have to be extracted. For example: magnetite is an iron ore, aluminum bauxite.

Mines are reservoirs from which it is possible to extract metal rocks (or solid fuels): they can be underground or open-air deposits. Metallurgy is the set of techniques and procedures necessary for extracting metals from their minerals and their processing to obtain semi-finished products (ingots, sheets) as part of Tool and Die Technology.

Iron metallurgy is called iron metallurgy. Iron is a metal that has played a very important role in the industrial and economic development of the last two centuries.
