Tandem-MAG welding is a process of joining of metal by keeping the two welding arcs or wires within close distance and to work in the same weld pool without undercut.
Ever wondered how certain objects are made? Mechanical Engineering is responsible for designing and producing manufacturing equipment. Learn how Manufacturing Technology makes even the most common products and tools available to you. They use a vast range of materials to get the job done. From metal and glass to plast and nano-materials, learn the basics of these elements. Read articles on the safety and use of materials to build the machines and mechanisms that power our every day world.
This is the first in series of articles dealing with heat treatment of steels. The basics for the requirement of heat treatment in steels, the advantages derived from doing so are discussed in this article.
This article deals with the final stage in the selection of a rolling element bearing. Based on the required parameters for the selection of rolling element bearing certain calculations have to be carried out to determine the capacity of the bearing.
This article is about bearings – how they are to be defined and what are the various classifications best known to us. This series of article will enlighten you more about bearings.
This article is written to give a basic insight on what Finite Element Analysis (FEA) or Finite Element Method (FEM) means. There is a lot of hype about the areas of application for which FEA can be applied. This article should throw some light on what exactly FEA means.
Gears play a prominent role in mechanical power transmission. Manufacturing of gears is a very interesting area involving various methodologies and varies with the type of gears to be produced. This article describes the various methods of manufacturing methodologies followed for each type.
The advanced CNC machines are commonly used in present day manufacturing companies. The maximum use of the CNC machines is found in auto-industry. In CNC machines In many machines the computer also help in designing the product, and based on the concept of CAM (Computer aided manufacturing)
We all used to learn and enjoy this favorite poem during our school days, but did you ever realize that the very clothes you are wearing might have something in common with this jingle? Read here to learn about the journey of wool from the skin of animals, to your skin.
Most of us usually associate the concept of manufacturing with that of engineering materials and structures associated with them, for example machines, buildings, roads and so on. But there is something else without which we cannot do without, clothes. Find out how they are manufactured below.
Water occupies nearly three-fourths of the Earth’s surface in various forms such as oceans, seas, and lakes. Man has been adventurous right from the word “go” and hence always sought to devise ways and means to overcome this bountiful element of nature and literally take it for a ride.
Whenever I mention the word “welding” mostly you must be reminded of a person wearing thick gloves, a dark shield and holding some rod in his/her hand and rays, sparks and smoke flying all over. Well this picture has changed a lot over the years so learn how robots fit into this scenario!!
Arc welding is an extremely useful process for joining metals as we learned in a couple of previous articles but since high current and substantial voltages are involved in the process, safety of the worker must be ensured at all costs. Below are some of the safety issues related to arc welding.
What do you do when you want to stick stamps on a letter you are posting, or when the fascias of your mobile breaks? I for one do not use my saliva or buy new fascias in such situations. Rather I use some sort of glue for the job. Learn how engineers use the process of welding metals to do the same.
Welding, as we learned in a previous article, deals with joining together materials with the combination of heat and/or pressure. There are several techniques to achieve this and one of the most commonly used is the electric arc method. In this article you will see the basic principles of the same.
