  • Zinc-Plated vs Galvanized Steel: What’s the Difference?

    Zinc-Plated vs Galvanized Steel: What’s the Difference?0

    Moisture can wreak havoc on many steel products. Products made of carbon steel, for instance, are susceptible to oxidation when exposed to moisture. As moisture settles on the surface of a carbon steel product, it can trigger a chemical reaction known as oxidation that eats through the material from which it’s made. To protect against

    5 Things to Consider When Choosing Industrial Shears0

    You don’t have to use a lathe or any other heavy-duty manufacturing machine to cut sheet metal. There are handheld tools available for this purpose. Known as industrial shears, they offer a quick and easy way to cut sheet metal. Industrial shears feature a scissor-like design consisting of two blades. Using them, you can easily

    What Is Electrical Discharge Machining (EDM) Cutting?0

    There are a variety of cutting processes used in the manufacturing industry. While you might be familiar with laser, plasma and water jet, a lesser-known cutting process is electrical discharge machining (EDM). It’s a metal fabrication technique that allows manufacturing companies to easily cut through metal workpieces. EDM cutting, however, is a highly advanced process

    How Metal Stamping Works0

    Metal stamping is a common manufacturing process. Also known simply as metal pressing, it involves the use of a stamping press to deform and shape a metal workpiece. Metal workpieces typically consist of sheet metal. To alter the shape of a piece of sheet metal, manufacturing companies can stamp it. How does metal stamping work

    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
