What are Non-Ferrous Metals?

Although non-ferrous metal is everywhere in the workplace, most employees do not know much about it. After all, knowing the properties of non-ferrous metal may not be necessary for assembling a workpiece or driving a forklift, but non-ferrous metal is vital in the manufacturing world, and its importance is only growing.

As vehicles get more sophisticated, the amount of non-ferrous metal used in their construction is increasing. Metal is a material that exhibits properties such as heat or electrical conductivity and hardness. A manufactured metal’s ingredients are mostly mined from ore within the earth. Metallurgy is the study of the properties, behavior, and structure of metals. Basically, it is the study of how to get the best use out of this material.

A non-ferrous metal is a metal in which the main element is not iron. Ferrous metals, on the other hand, consist primarily of iron. The non-ferrous metals that dominate the world of industry are aluminum and copper.

Highly-Interactive Multimedia Format Appeals to All Learning Styles
