    The 4 Steps of High-Pressure Die Casting0

    Also known as traditional die casting, high-pressure die casting is a metal casting process that involves injecting molten metal — steel, zinc, copper, aluminum, lead, magnesium, etc. — into a three-dimensional mold. The base metal is heated until it achieves a liquid, molten state. It’s then forced into the mold’s cavity, allowing it to take

    Who Invented The Rivet? A “Riveting” Bit Of Aviation History.0

    The Rivet is as critical to airplane construction as the lightweight aluminum from which they are made. It did not take long for engineers to determine that the dome head rivet was causing a lot of drag, leading to the development of the flush rivet. History gives Howard Hughes credit for both the butt joint
