Machine and Mechanism Design

From wind mills and steam engines and motors and turbines, mechanical engineers have been designing mechanical tools to make life easier since the beginning of time. Learn more about machine design including how mechanical engineers build a product from the design to finished work. We’ll explore combustion engines, common tools engineers use while building, and much more!

Guide to Hardware for Engineering and Industry

This guide to hardware deals with industry-standard items of which, though common, the selection of can make or break the repair, upgrade, or maintenance of essential equipment. How much do you know about the technical standards for the fasteners, bearings, belts, and seals you’re already using?

How to Work With Metal Studs

During some cases, metal units with complicated orientations may become difficult securing or integrating with other metal components. Metal Studs are especially made for such applications for fixing complex metal structures or assemblies firmly over desired positions.

Ceramic Coatings for Metals

Ceramic coatings are very useful procedure used to protect machine parts. We will spend a good deal of time covering the aspects of ceramic coatings for metals including plasma spray, electric arc, and detonation spray methods of application.

Operation of a Rivet Gun

A rivet gun is a very useful tool that fastens metal parts with rivets. Working with a rivet gun can increase productivity without degrading the quality of the finished product. There is more to the operation of a rivet gun is more than just learning the triggering mechanism.

Vibration Eliminator for Piping

Whether installed on a ship, factory, or in the local supermarket, all piping needs to well supported and vibration free. Pipe supports can incorporate springs to reduce vibration, however there are numerous other designs of specific vibration eliminators that can be fitted to the pipework.

What are the Most Used Blacksmith Tools

Advanced automation today might have made metal processing work quick and at huge scales, but it didn’t fully replace a blacksmith’s role in the field. Blacksmiths still occupy an important and irreplaceable position. What tools do the blacksmiths use the most? We’ll learn it here.
