Just like other types of saws, vertical metal band saws are used to cut materials except that it is used mainly for cutting metal materials. A vertical metal band saw can be used to remove or dissect certain parts from a large metal piece or it can be used to cut a metal piece into desired shapes. Since it is harder to cut through metal pieces than cut through wood or plastic pieces, the blades for the metal band saw should be rigid enough to withstand the heat, pressure, and flexing generated during cutting work.Dec 21, 2020
Boring and milling machines can widen holes in materials that are not ideal for thermal or electric-based methods of hole making as a physical shearing operation (such as laser cutting or electric discharge machining).
For expanding through holes, manual boring machines are ideally suited.
Thermal cutting is a series of processes that the heat produced by an electric arc, radiation energy, or an exothermic reaction is applied to melt or oxidize a metal at an accelerated rate in order to achieve a cut. The plasma machine applies such a principle to cut the workpieces.Dec 21, 2020
The application of resistance projection welding is typically found in the automotive industry in which the screw fastener parts are joined to metal sheet components. Since the nuts and studs are very tiny accessories, the RPW process is the best welding method to be applied to fix the small pieces onto the metal sheets. The RPW is also used on day-to-day products such as shopping carts to which the welding sites are usually as tiny as a spot.Dec 21, 2020
A press brake is workshop machinery used mostly for bending metals and sheets of metal. Where in compliance with the industrial necessity, it may be performed in either V type or U shape. It consists of two C frames mounted on the machine's ends, which are then fastened over a movable upper beam.Dec 21, 2020
Vertical and horizontal milling machines are the two most common types of milling machines on the market. The vertical milling machines refer to the mills that have the spindle head positioned vertically on the mill. On the other hand, a horizontal milling machine has the spindle head positioned horizontally to which the spindle is parallel to the floor.Dec 21, 2020
