  • What Is Magnetic Abrasive Finishing?

    What Is Magnetic Abrasive Finishing?0

    Also known as magnetic field-assisted finishing, magnetic abrasive finishing is a finishing process that involves the use of a magnetic field to apply particulate matter onto the surface of a workpiece or object. The purpose of magnetic abrasive finishing is to apply a powder coating. Of course, there are other finishing processes used for this

    Comparing the 5 Primary Extrusion Processes0

    Extrusion is a manufacturing process that involves forcing material, such as heated metal, through a three-dimensional die. As shown in the image to the left, it’s used to create products or objects with a static cross-sectional profile. When the material is forced through the die, it creates a continuous line of the respective product or

  • Overview of Threaded Rods and How They Work0

    Also known simply as a stud, a threaded rod is a metal fastener — typically made of stainless steel — that’s characterized by the presence of threading on both ends. Depending on the specific type of threaded rod, the threading may extend just partially, or it may extend all the way. Regardless, all threaded rods

  • What Is Laser Drilling?

    What Is Laser Drilling?0

    Drilling is a cutting process that requires the use of a rotating cutting tool known as a drill bit to cut a circular hole into a workpiece. When the drill bit is placed against the workpiece and activated, it rotates to scoop out material from the workpiece, thereby creating a circular hole. Used for both

    6 Milling-Related Terms You Need to Know0

    Milling is a common machining process used in the manufacturing industry. It involves the use of a milling machine to remove material from a workpiece with a rotating cutting tool. Unlike lathes, milling machines don’t rotate the secured workpiece. Rather, they hold in the workpiece in place while exposing it to a rotating cutting tool.

  • Why Steel Is Used to Make Permanent Magnets

    Why Steel Is Used to Make Permanent Magnets0

    With a tensile strength that’s roughly 1,000 times stronger than iron, steel has become one of the world’s most important metals. It’s used to make everything from bridges and automobiles to nuts, bolts and even gardening tools. Unbeknownst to many people, however, steel is also a key ingredient in the construction of permanent magnets. Being
