According to GlobalData’s company profile on Acerinox, defect detection models was a key innovation area identified from patents. Acerinox's grant share as of June 2023 was 1%. Grant share is based on the ratio of number of grants to total number of patents.

A recently filed patent (Publication Number: US20230173621A1) describes a method for using a welding filler material to weld a base material. The method involves providing a welding filler material that is composed of an alloy with specific weight percentages.

According to the patent claims, the welding filler material must meet certain criteria. Claim 3 states that the alloy must satisfy the condition Ti/N>10. This suggests that the ratio of titanium (Ti) to nitrogen (N) in the alloy must be greater than 10.

Claim 4 specifies that the welding filler material should have a yield strength Rp 0.2>640 MPa in the thermally untreated weld metal. This indicates that the material should have a minimum yield strength of 640 MPa in its original state before any thermal treatment.

The patent also includes additional conditions for the alloy composition. Claim 5 states that the alloy must satisfy the condition Zr/C>10, meaning that the ratio of zirconium (Zr) to carbon (C) in the alloy should be greater than 10. Similarly, claim 6 states that the alloy must satisfy the condition Nb/C>150, indicating that the ratio of niobium (Nb) to carbon (C) in the alloy should be greater than 150.

Overall, this patent describes a method for using a specific welding filler material with certain alloy compositions to weld a base material. The method requires the welding filler material to meet specific weight percentage criteria for titanium, nitrogen, zirconium, carbon, and niobium. Additionally, the welding filler material should have a minimum yield strength of 640 MPa in its original state. This patent may be of interest to professionals in the welding industry looking for improved welding techniques and materials.
