Metallurgy has come a long way from its beginnings millennia ago. Whereas in the past, only pure metals were processed, today we are aware of the many benefits of mixing metals. The properties of the individual metals combine to yield the improved characteristics of the alloy. A specialist in both pure metals and alloys is G.M.G. S.p.A. in Cartura, Italy. G.M.G. produces highly precise stamped and cast parts in a variety of metallic materials.
