  • 5 Benefits of Electropolishing in Metalworking

    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

    3D Microfabrication: An Introduction to Micro-Sized 3D Printing0

    3D printing is an innovative manufacturing process that allows companies to quickly and efficiently build objects from a computer-generated model file. It involves the use of a 3D printer to build the object using raw material. While most 3D printers are capable of producing small objects, some of them are designed specifically for small, micro-sized

    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

    An Introduction to Titanium Alloy0

    Pure titanium is oftentimes mixed with other metals or chemical elements. Known as titanium alloy, the presence of these additional metals and chemical elements changes its physical properties. Pure titanium itself is relatively strong — about the same strength as steel — but it becomes even stronger when mixed with other metals and chemical elements.
