Steel provides life to the designs of humanity. It has remained an invincible metal through the centuries, but how is it refined, and recycled? What is the difference between cast iron and stainless, and what are the primary alloys of steel?
The history of automation in the manufacturing industry can be traced back to the early use of basic pneumatic and hydraulic systems, up to the modern robots used by industry today. Many operations in the manufacturing industry have become automated, increasing production at the expense of labor.
Toolmaking and precision machining are the need of the day, but recent advances in technology demand ever higher precision and accuracy in order to reach the desired limit. This article will serve as a guide for toolmaking and precision machining articles at Bright Hub.
Materials play a vital role in the construction and manufacturing of equipment and tools. Choosing the right kind of materials add to the economy and life of machinery. In this guide to engineered materials we look at the need for and importance of studying topics in materials science.
This guide will help you learn about the various methods of heat treatment and measurement aspects of the mechanical properties of metals. Topics involved include the hardening, softening (annealing), and tempering processes carried out on critical components.
Mechanical workshop safety rules are important to follow because workshop rules and regulations not only ensure worker safety but also bring efficiency to the work process. Safety guidelines, fire precautions, and general work rules ensure that a symmetrical work process is observed in workshops.
The word “plastic” means soft or flexible, but modern plastics include a large range of synthetic polymers that are hard and rigid. We use various plastic products in our daily lives such as shopping bags, casings for electrical plugs and sockets, electronic gadgets, and many more.
The ready-made market for finished metal products in all forms meets huge demand for a number of different applications. However, before they can reach the customer, these products must go through many complex procedures and treatments.
This article deals with the dye penetrant non-destructive testing method, its advantages and disadvantages.
