    Breaking Down the Anatomy of a Screw

    • August 3, 2020

    Screws are one of the world’s most common types of fasteners. Not to be confused with bolts, they are used to secure two or more surfaces together. As the screw drives through the surfaces, it “digs” out material via its external threading. Even if you’ve used screws, though, you may be unfamiliar with their various

    What Is Ringing in 3D Printing?

    • July 31, 2020

    Have you heard of the 3D printing phenomenon known as “ringing.” If so, you might be wondering what it is exactly. 3D printers, of course, build objects by depositing material onto a print bed. They generally add the material layer by layer, starting from the bottom and working their way up. In some cases, though,

    5 Fast Facts About Turning in Manufacturing

    • July 30, 2020

    Manufacturing companies use a variety of machining processes to deform and shape metal workpieces, one of which is turning. Not to be confused with milling, turning is a machining process that involves the use of a stationary cutting tool to remove material from a rotating workpiece. As the cutting tool presses against the workpiece, it

    Why Steel Corrodes (and Solutions to Prevent It)

    • July 30, 2020

    An alloy of iron and carbon, steel is one of the most common materials used in the manufacturing industry. It’s used to make everything from screws and nails to bridges, railroads and more. Like many metals and alloys, though, steel is susceptible to corrosion. Over time, it may develop a layer of corrosion that gradually

    What Is Impact Extrusion?

    • July 28, 2020

    When researching the different extrusion processes, you may come across impact extrusion. Like all extrusion processes, it involves forcing material through a die. Impact extrusion is unique, however, because it uses an excessive amount of force when compared to other extrusion processes. What is impact extrusion exactly, and how does it differ from other extrusion

    The Role of Extrusion in 3D Printing Applications

    • July 25, 2020

    Extrusion is an underlying concept used in many 3D printing applications. Although there are different types of 3D printers, many of them are designed to extrude material. The raw material is forced through a nozzle before being released onto a print bed. While extrusion is used in a myriad of manufacturing-related applications, it’s a key
