  • Forging vs Forming in Metalworking: What’s the Difference?

    Forging vs Forming in Metalworking: What’s the Difference?0

    Forging and forming are two common types of metalworking processes. They both involve the manipulation of metal to achieve a different size and/or shape. From iron and steel to aluminum, bronze and more, countless metals and alloys support these two metalworking processes. Forging and forming aren’t the same, however. They each use a different method

  • What Is Superfinishing in Metalworking?

    What Is Superfinishing in Metalworking?0

    Also known as micromachining and short-stroke honing, superfinishing is an advanced metalworking process that’s designed to create a more refined finish on metal workpieces. Like other finishing processes, it involves the removal of material. Superfinishing removes the top layer of material on a workpiece’s surface to create a more refined finish that’s characterized by a

    What Is Phosphatizing in Metalworking?0

    It’s not uncommon for metal products to contain a protective outer layer that discourages rust and corrosion. Steel products, for instance, almost always feature some type of protective finish. Otherwise, moisture and oxygen will cause them to rust. While there are several methods used to create a protective finish over metal workpieces, one of the

  • What Is a Metalworking Lathe?

    What Is a Metalworking Lathe?0

    Not to be confused with a milling machine, a lathe is a machining tool that’s used to cut, sand, knurl, drill and turn workpieces by exposing them to a stationary cutting tool. The workpiece is clamped in place, after which it rotates while pressing against a stationary cutting tool. Lathes have been around for thousands

    Top 5 Benefits of Induction Welding0

    Have you heard of induction welding? It’s a high-frequency welding process that involves the use of an electromagnet to generate heat. With induction welding, radio-frequency electricity powers an induction coil. As the induction coil receives the electrical current, it heats up. The induction welding apparatus can then be used to weld two or more objects
