  • Pros and Cons of Cold-Forming Metalworking

    Pros and Cons of Cold-Forming Metalworking0

    Not all metalworking processes involve welding or otherwise melting metal workpieces at high temperatures. There are cold-forming metalworking processes as well. Also known as cold-working, cold-forming is a group of metalworking processes that involve manipulating a metal workpiece’s shape at a temperature that’s below the metal’s recrystalization point. Cold-forming metalworking processes consist of rolling, angle

    An Introduction to Metal Fabrication0

    Metals have unique properties that aren’t found in other types of raw materials. Most metals, for instance, are hard and strong. They can also be either malleable or ductile, depending on the specific type. For a manufacturing company to build something out of metal, however, it must perform fabrication. This post offers an introduction to

    Comparing 300, 400 and 500 Series Steel0

    Steel is an invaluable material that’s used in the production of countless products. Defined as an alloy of iron and carbon, it’s stronger and more durable than most other materials. These physical characteristics make it ideal for automotive engines, machines, handheld tools, bridges, buildings and more. With that said, steel is often graded according to

    5 Benefits of Electropolishing in Metalworking0

    Also known as electrochemical polishing, electropolishing is a metalworking process that’s used to remove excess or unwanted material from the surface of a metal workpiece. It involves bathing a metal workpiece in a tub of electrolytes that’s connected to a direct current (DC) power supply. The surface of the metal workpiece is then oxidized, which

  • What Is Cold Welding?

    What Is Cold Welding?0

    Welding is a common fabrication process that involves the use of heat to fuse two or more metal parts. When melted is heated, it turns to liquid. The opposite surfaces of the metal parts will then mix together, resulting in a strong and secure connection once cooled. Not all metal fabrication processes, however, require the

  • 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
