Introduction to wire cutting

Introduction to wire cutting

Wire cutting or Electrical discharge machining (EDM) is a manufacturing process that implements electrical sparks to form a metal shape. Because of these sparks, EDM is also sometimes referred to as spark machining. In this process, the desired shape is cut from the metal when current discharges, or sparks, occur between two electrodes; where the sparking occurs, cuts are made into the metal, creating the desired shape and detaching it from the metal sheet. So this is why it is sometimes referred to as wire cutting.

The aerospace component and precision aircraft components market

The aerospace component and precision aircraft components market

Forty years ago, aluminum dominated the aerospace industry. As a new kid on the block, it was considered light, inexpensive, and state-of-the-art aircraft components. In fact, as much as 70% of airplanes were once made of aluminum. Other new materials were also used, such as composites and alloys, including titanium, graphite and fiberglass, but only in very small amounts - here 3%, there 7%. Readily available aluminum was used everywhere, from the fuselage to the main engine components.

Read this to understand Resistance Spot Welding!

Resistance spot welding is a technology that uses heat generated by resistance to weld two pieces of metal together. The welding material is fixed together from above and below by copper electrodes connected to the welding power source for energization. When current passes through the part to be welded, the heat generated by the resistance melts and is incorporated into the material. In factory automation automatic resistance spot welding machines have been widely used in the connection process of production lines.

The Reliable Vertical Metal Cutting Band Saws

The Reliable Vertical Metal Cutting Band Saws

If you need a reliable tool for cutting wood, sawn timber and metal, as well as for making curved cuts, a band saw can be for you. When it comes to power tools, the band saw is probably not the best known. When you think about power tools, you probably think about things like drills, table saws, circular saws, etc. Many people probably don't even know what a band saw is. In this full guide, I will tell you everything you need to know about band saws.

Introduction to Vertical Machining Centers

Introduction to Vertical Machining Centers

Vertical machining centers have appeared in its most basic form for more than 150 years. However, it is still one of the latest forms of machining technology (turning/locking is the oldest). The "milling" process requires a rotating tool or drill and a movable worktable to fix the workpiece on the worktable.

CNC Grinders - Trends and Developments

CNC Grinders - Trends and Developments

With the technological development of today's metal casting industry new heights, it is important to apply technology to the complex process of metal casting to make full use of this. Due to the nature of the process, the grinding and finishing process has always been one of the most difficult processes in the metal casting industry to show high-efficiencyvalues. CNC grinders have been used in the machining process for several years and have developed greatly in a short time. Today's CNC grinder machines are strong and flexible and can be used as a machine tool for steel parts while grinding and cutting tools can be used to remove excess material from castings. In this article, we will take an in-depth look at CNC grinders in all of its variations with a focus on the most recent technological trends and developments.
