  • The Benefits of Custom-Molded Parts

    The Benefits of Custom-Molded Parts0

    When shopping for seals, gaskets, hoses, tubing and other machine parts, you can’t ignore the benefits of custom molding. Custom-molded parts are manufactured using a molding process. Injection molding, for instance, is often used to make custom-molded parts. With injection molding, heated material is injected into a mold cavity. As it cools, the material will

    What Is Impact Extrusion?0

    When researching the different extrusion processes, you may come across impact extrusion. Like all extrusion processes, it involves forcing material through a die. Impact extrusion is unique, however, because it uses an excessive amount of force when compared to other extrusion processes. What is impact extrusion exactly, and how does it differ from other extrusion

    The 4 Primary Approaches to Permanent Mold Casting0

    Permanent mold casting is a casting process that, as the name suggests, involves the use of a permanent mold. Unlike with casting processes, the mold can be reused for multiple casting applications. During permanent mold casting, molten metal is forced into a mold cavity. As it fills the mold cavity, it creates a new object

    Rotocasting vs Rotational Molding: What’s the Difference?0

    Molding processes are used in the manufacturing industry to create products and components by filling a mold cavity with material. The material is typically heated, and as it fills the mold cavity, it takes the shape of the mold. Once cooled, the casting can be removed from the mold cavity. There are many different types

  • What Is Permanent Mold Casting?

    What Is Permanent Mold Casting?0

    Molding processes are used to create objects with the assistance of a die. The material — which is typically heated or molten — is poured or otherwise injected into the cavity of a die. As the material fills the surrounding space, it creates a casting in the same shape as the die. Not all molding
