Different types of manufacturing processes are improving rapidly with the pace of technological development. This article will discuss the most popular manufacturing techniques of the industry and their applications.
The laminated object manufacturing or LOM is the manufacturing process of making flat components by laying the thin layers or glued raw materials and subsequently applying pressure over the assembly. The construction of the produced component is much similar to … Read the rest
The powder metallurgy process starts with manufacturing the powder by which the component to be produced, then the powder is blended and pressed into the desired shape mould. The compressed material is then heated so that the powders get fused … Read the rest
Abrasive jet machining (AJM) or micro-abrasive blasting or abrasive micro-blasting or pencil blasting is the process of removing or local eroding of the material by jet of abrasive particles and gas mixtures.
Rapid prototyping or 3D printing is the manufacturing process for creating the components by layer wise deposition. The process starts with creating a 3D CAD model of the component to be produced. The CAD file is then converted to .stl … Read the rest
EDM is the material removal process by means of electrical discharge. Typically, the tool (either a wire or a probe) consists of one electrode and the work piece is another electrode. The work piece is sometimes immersed into the non-conducting … Read the rest
Normally the Carbon dioxide (CO2 laser is used here for precision cutting of materials. CO2 laser is typically produced by passing a current into the DC –excited gas mix. The laser beam is then directed and controlled by computer to … Read the rest
The gas cutting or flame cutting or oxygas cutting (or simply gas cutting) equipment typically consists of a cutting torch (or nozzle) connected with two cylinders, one of the cylinders is filled with oxygen and another with acetylene. The acetylene … Read the rest
Brazing process is a kind of fusion welding process where very soft filler materials are used and the joining process is performed at lower temperature (above 450 degree C). The joining area is also very small compare to the traditional … Read the rest
