CNC Milling and Turning: Are There Any Differences?

25 May 2020

Custom machining services provide valuable resource to businesses and industries such as defence, optics, pharmaceutical, machinery, automotive. The skilled craftsmen at machine shops use hand crafting and computer-controlled machines to fabricate replacement parts, customized designs, and perform maintenance and repair on various pieces of equipment from lawn mowers to ice houses to heavy equipment used on farms. CNC Machining is a process used in the manufacturing sector that involves the use of computers to control machine tools. Tools that can be controlled in this manner include lathes, mills, routers and grinders. The CNC in CNC Machining stands for Computer Numerical […]

Understanding What EDM Die Sinking is All About

11 May 2020

Electrical Discharge Machine(EDM) Die-sinking, also called as a cavity type EDM or volume EDM, consists of an electrode and work piece submerged in an insulating liquid such as, more typically, oil or, less frequently, other dielectric fluids. The electrode and work piece are connected to a suitable power supply. The power supply generates an electrical potential between the two parts. As the electrode approaches the work piece, dielectric breakdown occurs in the fluid, forming a plasma channel, and a small spark jumps. Read further below to understand what EDM Die Sinking is all about. EDM Die Sinking Basics The sparks […]

CNC Operators’ Rules and Precautions before Running CNC Machines

28 April 2020

Computer Numerical Control (CNC) is the process by which a computer converts the design produced by Computer Aided Design software (CAD), into numbers. The numbers can be considered to be the coordinates of a graph and they control the movement of the cutter. In this way the computer controls the cutting and shaping of the material. CNC operators are responsible for any CNC machine crash when they are in operation. Crashes happen frequently on the shop floor and are often catastrophic and costly. Accidents are usually due to the lack of skilled CNC Operators or well-trained CNC Operators within the […]

The Difference Between Conventional and Non-Conventional Machining Process

07 April 2020

Most people don’t know that the manufacturing process consist of two groups namely the primary and secondary processes. The primary process creates the basic shape and size of the material while the secondary one – otherwise known as the machining process provides the final shape and size with a tighter control on dimensions, surface characteristics, etc. To further understand the secondary manufacturing process, you must know the difference between the conventional and non-conventional machining process. Tools Used Conventional machining process must always have a physical tool present. For instance, a cutting tool in a Lathe machine. On the other hand, […]

Machining Hard and Exotic Materials: What Is It All About?

20 March 2020

Manufacturers use a variety of materials today to make their products. While some fit into the soft category, many others fit into the hard or exotic category. You may picture exotic as meaning that the material is from far off land, but it is a term used to describe materials that wear durably in conditions of extreme cold, high heat or corrosiveness. The process of forming these materials into products is called hard machining. It is specially designed to cut materials with a hardness range of 45 HRC to 68 HRC efficiently. We will briefly cover these materials and the […]
