The SAC 305 + Pd solder joints showed more grain refinements, recrystallization, and especially mechanical twin
deformation during the shock test, which provides a partial explanation for the ability of SAC 305 + Pd to absorb more shock-induced energy through active deformation compared with SAC 305.
It is to compete with the Toyota Camry, Ford Mondeo, Mazda6, Honda Accord Euro, Volkswagen Passat and its mechanical twin
, Hyundai's i45.
Ford's Fusion family sedan is based on the Mazda6 platform and its new Ranger pickup truck is built alongside its mechanical twin
, the Mazda BT-50, at a factory in Thailand.
The euro has fallen 14 percent against the dollar since Ford reached a tentative deal with the UAW in October to build the Kuga in Louisville alongside its mechanical twin
, the Escape.
Contracted through a multi-national packaging machinery supplier, CKF Systems Ltd, automated handling specialist to the food industry, recently supplied a mechanical twin
leg row handling system to Sweet Productions Ltd, a confectionery and nutritional food bar manufacturer in Amityville, New York.
reported  that, in the Fe-0.6C-18Mn-1Al steel, mechanical twins nucleated at the grain boundaries and then propagated across the grain interior, as the degree of deformation increased.
The mechanical twins subdivide the austenite grains and reduce the dislocations mean free path.
The mechanical twins were detected up to ~80[degrees]C.
