    An Introduction to Titanium Alloy

    • June 22, 2020

    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 Robocasting in 3D Printing?

    • June 19, 2020

    From simple toys to complex automotive components, 3D printing is used to create a diverse range of products. It’s called “3D printing” because it builds three-dimensional objects by printing them. Rather than ink, of course, 3D printers use raw material. Robocasting is a unique form of 3D printing, however, that’s commonly used in the manufacturing

    Selective Heat Sintering vs Laser Melting in 3D Printing

    • June 18, 2020

    Selective heat sintering (SHS) and selective laser melting (SLM) are two common types of 3D printing used in the manufacturing industry. While not as popular as fused deposition modeling (FDM), they offer many advantages for commercial applications. With SHS and SLM, the raw material isn’t deposited. Rather, the raw material is “selectively” joined via heat.

    Manufacturing companies often use die casting produce complex metal products and components with precise dimensions. There are other processes available that can manipulate metal workpieces into a new size and shape. Die casting, however, is more accurate since it allows for close tolerances and precise dimensions. Below are five fun facts about the manufacturing process

    Ghosting: How It Affects 3D Printers

    • June 17, 2020

    3D printing has become increasingly popular in recent years. Statistics show that the global 3D printing market is now valued at over $21 billion, compared to just $4.4 billion in 2012. Manufacturing companies big and small alike use it to build products, as well as prototypes, in their daily operations. Some 3D printers, however, may

    What Is Rubber Pad Forming in Metalworking?

    • June 11, 2020

    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
