Knurling is a mechanical process of rolling patterns on the knobs of metal products or other working surfaces, mainly for anti-skid purposes. And used in many hardware, mold, and mechanical components.
Regardless of traditional machinery manufacturing, or high-tech semiconductors, electric vehicles, and drones, most key components require heat treatment.
Direct Energy Deposition (DED), also known as metal laser cladding, is one of the methods used to fabricate metal workpieces by additive manufacturing technology.
Metal spraying is the process of spraying molten corrosion-resistant metal onto the metal surface with compressed air or inert gas to form a protective coating.
Polishing refers to the use of mechanical, chemical, or electrochemical action to reduce the surface roughness of the workpiece to obtain a bright and smooth surface. The modification of the surface of a workpiece using polishing tools and abrasive particles or other polishing media.
Casting is most commonly used to create complex shapes that would otherwise be difficult or uneconomical to make using other methods. Metal casting processes have been known for thousands of years, and have been widely used for creating sculptures, jewelry, transportation, weapons, and tools.
Spot welding is a type of welding used to weld sheets of metal together by clamping the sheets together at a single point and passing an electric current through the point to melt the sheets together.
Titanium alloys are widely used in aerospace, chemical, marine, and automotive industries due to their excellent strength-to-weight ratio, corrosion resistance, and ability to maintain strength at high temperatures. However, the disadvantages of titanium alloys are poor thermal conductivity and strong reactivity with tool materials. Their high strength, and low elastic modulus make them difficult to cut materials.
In-mold manufacturing, casting and forging are often used for processing. What is the difference between these two manufacturing processes?
The principle of grinding precision machining: Grinding is an abrasive precision machining method that uses a lapping tool and abrasive to grind off a thin layer of metal from the surface of the workpiece based on fine machining.
Etching is a technique to process the surface of the object by using chemical strong acid corrosion, mechanical polishing, or electrochemical electrolysis. In addition to enhancing aesthetics, it furthermore increases the added value of the object. Procedures from traditional metal processing to high-tech semiconductor manufacturing are all within the scope of applications of etching technique.
Metal fabricators looking to take on finishing should know about two of the most common finishing alternatives—liquid and powder coating—and the requirements involved for a company hoping to apply one or both.
Metal stamping refers to the use of the power of punching machinery and the use of molds as metal plate forming tools to produce punching separation or plastic deformation effects to achieve the production technology of parts in terms of size, shape, and performance requirements.
In the cutting of hardware components, a comprehensive analysis of factors is required, and through strict process flow, a suitable cutting process can be planned to manufacture hardware components of stable quality.
Tool reconditioning is witnessed to be gaining in popularity as companies try to balance cost savings with high worker productivity and project completion rates. Processes like machine tool reconditioning, tool regrinding, and end mill regrinding are all viable options for both large and medium-sized facilities to consider.
The thread is usually the last feature added to the part. There are other challenges besides the exact parameters required and standard threading issues.
Welding is a process that uses "heat" and "electricity" to connect two pieces of metal, and the type of welding metal will also affect the welding results and technical requirements; like many professional skills, welding technology also has different levels of difficulty. First understand the most common types of welding introduction, principle teaching, and skill analysis.
Welding is a method to make two metal blocks belong together. Metal weldability is the ability of metal materials to adapt to the welding process. Under certain welding process conditions, whether it can obtain high-quality welded joints and whether the welded joints can operate safely under use conditions is an evaluation standard.
Although the recent impact of the COVID-19 (New Coronary Pneumonia) epidemic caused a short-term loss in the aviation industry, for the overall aviation market, the demand is still constant.
Quenching is a heat treatment process for metals and glass. Heating alloy products or glass to a certain temperature, then rapidly cooling in water, oil, or air containing minerals, generally used to increase the hardness and strength of the alloy.
