Titan Aircraft Keeps History Alive with P-51 Mustang
More than seventy years after its maiden flight, the appeal of the P-51 Mustang fighter airplane continues to hold strong. A key fighter-bomber airplane for American forces in World War II, the P-51 Mustang was originally designed and manufactured by North American Aviation (NAA). P-51 models served in WWII in both the Royal Air Force and the U.S. Air Force and later as a United Nations war plane during the Korean War. Following those two wars, these planes became a popular model for air race conversion.
The P-51 is often praised for its historical value and sleek visual appeal, meaning many of today's aircraft enthusiasts wish to add one to their personal fleet. Titan Aircraft, an aircraft kit manufacturer in Austinburg, Ohio, offers a scaled version of the legendary airplane that customers can purchase and help build.

Wired: Indalco Brings Single-Minded Focus to Aluminum Welding-Wire Production
If you provide a unique product that demands high quality and uninterrupted supply, control is everything. The manufacturing process of aluminum welding wire is a perfect example. The wire must remain free of impurities to produce quality welds and timely procurement of raw material to create finished aluminum products can be risky business.
In 1998, Lincoln Electric Co. purchased Indalco Alloys, a Mississauga, Ontario, producer of aluminum rod and wire products. The acquisition of this Canadian firm brought greater control for Lincoln Electric in its supply of aluminum welding wire. Indalco owns and operates its own aluminum-rod mill, which is unique among welding-wire suppliers. Together, the two companies have developed SuperGlaze® MIG and TIG aluminum welding wire.
