Introduction to Lean Tooling

This Introduction to Lean Tooling program examines how manufacturing companies are using lean tooling as an integral part of lean manufacturing to immediately cut costs, drastically reduce production lead time, and ensure quality. It will help you organize your tooling so you can find every tool you need in less than 30 seconds and  it will help you get tooling ready faster so that setup time is minimized.

Forging

This Forging program begins by outlining forging's function in refining the metallurgical microstructure of wrought mills forms, and it's use in generating parts to near-net shape from these forms. Featured are segments on the various types of forging processes, including: Open-Die Forging, Impression-Die Forging, and Related Forging Processes.

Managing Teams in Manufacturing

This Managing Teams in Manufacturing program transforms hard-to-define organizational concepts into a practical management agenda to help you focus on avoiding the pervasive pitfalls that often limit team performance. You'll see why team-based organizations almost always out-perform traditional top-down organizations. At Hewlett-Packard, teams have boosted responsiveness to frequent changes in technology and the production processes of their laser printers. See how team-based organization also helps break down adversarial relationships between departments, between production stages, or between unions and management.

Threading

The screw form as used in manufacturing has two primary functions - to transmit power and motion, as with a lead screw on a machine tool, and as threaded fasteners such as nuts, screws, and bolts. This Threading program examines the many dimensions that make up all threads, as well as segments on eternal threads, internal threads, and thread quality & verification. The Threading Introduction segment examines the various thread dimensions, such as the major diameter, minor diameter, thread pitch, thread pitch diameter, percent of thread, thread angle, screw lead, thread shape, and thread tolerances & allowances. The External Threads segment explores the methods in which external thread are produced, including: hand threading using solid or adjustable dies, thread turning using various infeeds, thread chasing, thread milling using helical interpolation, thread grinding, and thread rolling using flat plate rolling, radial/cylindrical thread rolling, or thread rolling attachments. The Internal Threads segment details the taps and tapping operations, including: manual tapping, the use of flexible arms, tapping machines, drill & tap centers, and multi-spindle tapping. Segments on floating tap heads, rigid/synchronous tapping, special tapping heads, and tap nomenclature is also featured. The Thread Quality & Verification segment covers the various levels of inspections, the gages used, and the mechanical and non-destructive testing processes used to verify threaded parts.

Extrusion Processes

Extrusion is the deformation of either metal or plastic forced under pressure through a die to create a shape. This unique Extrusion Processes program is an introduction to both plastic extrusion and metal extrusion processes. The Metal Extrusion segment looks at hot extrusion, press components, lubrication, force capacity, and the metals that are typically hot extruded. Both warm and cold extrusion processes are featured too, including indirect extrusion, combination extrusion, and impact extrusion. The Plastic Extrusion segment explores components of the screw extrusion machine and common feedstock and materials. The two most prevalent plastic extrusion processes, profile extrusion and blown film extrusion, are also extensively detailed.

Rapid ToolingRapid Parts

learn how CAD/CAM advancements in rapid prototyping (RP) let you move quickly from CAD/CAM concepts to hard tooling, via rapid prototyping methods, to make "ready-to-test" parts. You'll witness RP's acceleration beyond fragile plastic constructions that show form and only mimic function, to actual metal or engineered plastic parts from RP tooling. This best selling program shows you step-by-step techniques and actual benefits.
