Paper: The Building Material of the Future

With the recent trend of environmentally-friendly building and products, many companies are looking for new ways to create innovative and environmentally friendly products that customers will love and use. One of the most environmentally-friendly products that has been around for ages is paper. Even though paper does consume trees, it is easy to recycle and reuse, and as long as enough new trees are planted, the cycle can continue without end. One recent trend is to incorporate the use of more paper products into non-traditional products, like lighting, clocks, furniture, and now, even entire buildings. Continue reading

Try Magnetic Deburring

A deburring machine can take the rough, unfinished edges of a metal piece and smooth them away to create a finished product that can perform its intended function. When machining metal parts, many machines leave unwanted burrs and slivers of metal on the outside edges of the part. Deburring the parts removes the unwanted pieces and exposes the final piece. Continue reading

Prehistoric Peening and Today

Many industrial manufacturing techniques can be linked with prehistoric methods that were effective in their own way, particularly so considering they were all done manually. Our thriving mechanical and technological modern day has improved upon these early techniques for working with metal and other natural resources, creating more easy and efficient methods to get the same jobs done. One example of this evolution is shot peening equipment, which is a type of sandblast equipment specifically designed to strengthen or toughen up the surface and structure of a material, whether in its raw fabricated form or the shape of its final product. In prehistoric times this method simply involved hammering a metal with another metal, causing an excellent type of stress that strengthened rather than weakened the material. This original form of shot peening was done manually for long periods of time to get the desired effect. Continue reading

Conventional EDM

Conventional EDM is also referred to as Sinker EDM or Ram, and uses an electrically charged electrode to burn shapes and holes into metal components. The removed material is washed away by a continuous flush of dielectric fluid. This process is used for the most part in the tool and die industry. Materials of varying hardness or toughness can be machined in this way as long as they are electrically conductive. Aerospace and electronic applications also use EDM for materials that are difficult to work with, if they have small/odd angles for example or need to be machined with intricate contours and cavities. Continue reading

Sinker EDM and the Automotive Industry

On my drive to work (and anywhere else for that matter) I rarely think about how exactly my car works or all of the different parts that are required for it to function properly. I know there is a lot to it, and parts are manufactured in various places then sent to be assembled, but how do they make the parts? How much work is involved in each individual product? Most parts require quite a bit of work. One of the methods to make parts or the molds for parts is sinker EDM. It is used to make precise, complex parts for a variety of different industries, one of which is the automobile industry. Continue reading

The Easier Way to Cut Tough Metals, EDM Cutting

One of my earliest childhood memories is a small wood model boat my dad would work on every once and a while after work or on a rainy day. I believe he started working on it shortly after I was born. I’m twenty two years old now and the boat is still sitting on the living room floor unfinished. It is comprised of what seems like thousands of tiny little pieces, each need to be hand cut and formed perfectly. When finished it will be an amazing, complete model ship scaled down to three feet, but I most likely will never see it. The problem is the pieces are so small that it is difficult to cut. A piece of the wood could break and he has to start over, a piece could warp or curve wrong if the glue doesn’t hold perfect and it would have to be thrown out. For my dad, every piece must lay exactly as it is meant to, or else it wouldn’t be a real model. Continue reading

The Stainless Steel Tanks and the Modern Microbrewery

Microbreweries are fast becoming a staple of the American city. The area in which I reside boasts close to twenty of these facilities, each one creating a different type of beer. Many of the buildings are now designed or reconstructed to show off the inner workings of the brewery. Walk by one of the newer establishments and chances are there will be large plates of glass where a wall would normally be, and inside you can see giant tanks complete with their own staircases.
