Affiliations and Expertise

Edward Moor Trent was born in England and was the first to describe the diffusion wear mechanisms in tungsten-carbide-cobalt cutting tools. This work was the foundation for new grades of carbide for cutting steels, and subsequently for the development of coated cutting tools. Trent was a prominent lecturer in the Industrial Metallurgy Dept. at Birmingham University and was awarded the "Hadfield Medal" by the Iron and Steel Institute in recognition of his contributions to metallurgy. His accomplishments are highly regarded among professionals in the field today.
