  • Steel vs Aluminum vs Brass Sheet Metal: What’s the Difference?

    Steel vs Aluminum vs Brass Sheet Metal: What’s the Difference?0

    Consisting of flat sheets of metal — typically hot or cold rolled — sheet metal is used extensively in the manufacturing industry. Manufacturing companies cut and reshape it to build various products. There are three primary types of sheet metal, however, including steel, aluminum and brass. While they all offer a strong base material for

  • Turning vs Milling: What’s the Difference?

    Turning vs Milling: What’s the Difference?0

    Manufacturing companies use dozens of machining processes to create products out of raw or semi-formed materials, some of the most common of which include turning and milling. Like other machining processes, they both require the use of a machine. With turning and milling, a machine is used to remove material from a workpiece, thereby changing

  • The Heavy Impact on Machining Vibrations

    The Heavy Impact on Machining Vibrations0

    Most types of heavy machines used in the manufacturing industry, including lathes and milling machines, produce vibrations during operation. Also known as chatter, these machining vibrations can often responsible for premature wear and tear. When ignored, the constant vibrations will wear down the machine, which may cause it to fail shortly down the road. But

  • Milling vs Grinding: What’s the Difference?

    Milling vs Grinding: What’s the Difference?0

    Milling and grinding are two common machining processes performed in the manufacturing industry. They both involve the removal of material from a workpiece, and they both support a wide variety of materials. Whether a workpiece is made of iron, aluminum, steel, copper or any other metal or alloy, it can probably be manipulated via milling

  • Lathe vs Milling Facing: What’s the Difference?

    Lathe vs Milling Facing: What’s the Difference?0

    Facing operations are often categories as either lathe or milling, depending on the type of machine used. They involve the use of a machine to selectively remove material from the end or shoulder of a workpiece. The workpiece is secured to either a lathe or milling machine, after which it’s exposed to a cutting tool.

  • How Does a Lathe Work?

    How Does a Lathe Work?0

    Lathes are an essential machining tool used in the manufacturing industry. Among other things, they support cutting, knurling, facing and turning operations. With origins dating back to Ancient Egypt, they are regarded as one of the oldest machining tools. So, how does a lathe work exactly? The Basics of Lathes and How They Work Although
