This chapter presents some industrial applications and associated equipments of the Xu-Tec process. Some application examples in industrial products, such as high-speed steel (HSS) saw blade, HSS colloid mill, and Ni–Cr alloy corrosion resistance steel plate, are introduced. Many possible applications in carbon steel, titanium and its alloy, intermetallic compound and other metallic materials are also discussed briefly in this chapter. The technical specifications and design principles of the industrial processing equipment scaling-up are presented.
