  • An Introduction to Titanium Alloy

    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.

  • What Is Rubber Pad Forming in Metalworking?

    What Is Rubber Pad Forming in Metalworking?0

    Have you heard of rubber pad forming? Based on the name alone, you may assume that it’s used to produce rubber products. Rubber pad forming, however, is actually a metalworking process that’s used to produce metal products. It’s simply called “rubber pad forming” because it uses rubber pads to deform a metal workpiece. The Basics

  • Hemming vs Seaming in Metalworking: What’s the Difference?

    Hemming vs Seaming in Metalworking: What’s the Difference?0

    Manufacturing companies use a variety of metalworking processes to manipulate sheet metal, two of which include hemming and seaming. In both of these processes, sheet metal is bent and rolled over, resulting in a new shape. Hemming and seaming aren’t the same, however. They each require a different approach, and as a result, they are

    What Is Metal Injection Molding?0

    From wrenches and cutting bits to eyeglass hinges and telephone plugs, metal injection molding is used to create a wide range of products. A form of injection molding, it involves filling a mold cavity with raw material. Metal injection molding is essentially a variation of plastic injection molding. Rather than creating plastic objects, though, it’s

  • 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
