"Our Practical Data for Metallurgists guide has served as an industry standard since its introduction in 1953," said Ray Fryan, vice president of quality and technology. "We know the guide gets a lot of use in the field, so now, we've created a user-friendly experience that makes referencing the guide quick, convenient and easy, in the palm of your hand, from your mobile device."

The new application allows users to pull up the guide on their mobile phones or tablets and navigate to any section immediately, without flipping through pages of a book.

Downloading the app involves only a few steps for Apple or Android users, and is accessible by visiting from the mobile device's browser. The app takes up no space, and updates are automatic and happen in real-time.

The app features:

  • A calculations tab featuring an interactive theoretical foot weight calculator;
  • A listing of standard steels from the guide including their chemical compositions, hardening abilities and tolerances;
  • Other tabs from the guide including Steel Chemistries, Steel Properties, Tubing, Bar and Miscellaneous Information;
  • A Glossary tab with a listing of terms and definitions; and
  • A Contact Us tab with phone numbers for company facilities and email buttons for key contacts.

"We developed the app because we thought it was an important way to bring the knowledge and expertise that's in this 18th edition of the guide, literally to the hands of every audience," Fryan said.
