  • What Is Cold-Worked Metal?

    What Is Cold-Worked Metal?0

    Metal is oftentimes manipulated after being smelted from raw ore to improve its strength, durability, ductility or other physical properties. While most of these metalworking processes involve the use of heat, others do not. Cold working, for example, is a group of metalworking processes that’s designed to improve the physical properties of metal at or

    What Is an Alligator Shear?0

    Shearing machines are used by manufacturing companies to cut sheet metal, as well as other materials and workpieces, with a straight blade. The sheet metal is secured below the cutting blade, after which the cutting blade drops down to cut through it. There are many different types of shearing machines, however, one of which is

  • 5 Fun Facts About Rapid Prototyping

    5 Fun Facts About Rapid Prototyping0

    Manufacturers often use 3D printers to build prototypes of new products from a computer-aided design (CAD) file. Known as rapid prototyping, it’s become an increasingly popular alternative to traditional prototyping methods in recent years. As its name suggests, rapid prototyping emphasizes speed to allow for blazing-fast production times. Here are fun facts about rapid prototyping

  • Comparing the Different Types of Milling Machines

    Comparing the Different Types of Milling Machines0

    Featuring a rotating cutting tool, milling machines are able to quickly and efficiently remove material from otherwise hard workpieces. The workpiece is secured in place, after which it’s exposed to a cutting tool. Milling machines differ from lathes in the sense that they use a rotating cutting tool. Lathes have stationary cutting tool, whereas milling
