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.
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.
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.
We learned about the basics of an electric arc in the previous article. In this part we would go a bit deeper and learn about the electric circuit which forms the arc. Apart from that we would also take a look at the welding electrodes, their functions and usefulness in the arc welding process.
Manufacturing cycle is the complete cycle of processes which are involved from the very beginning of placing an order to the other extreme of the manufactured product going into the hands of the end consumer. Read on to find out more about these intermediate processes and a brief description thereof
As we know mechanical engineering is mainly related to the science of machines in the broad sense of the word. Machines are mainly used for production of other products and this is where the concept of manufacturing technology comes in the picture. Find out more about this interesting technology!
Manufacturing of different products is a very interesting and equally challenging subject and one certainly needs to know the basics of different types of prominent manufacturing processes which are in use in the industry today. This article tells you about the main types manufacturing processes.
Manufacturing of various products is carried out with the help of different kinds of machines. Lathe machine is one of the oldest, yet most useful and versatile of such kind of manufacturing machines, and can be used for numerous manufacturing operations on a wide range of materials.
