Sheet Metal Shearing and Bending DVD
This program examines two of the oldest manufacturing processes: shearing and bending. Shearing is the cutting of sheet metal by means of two opposing blades. It is used to cut large sheets of material into smaller more manageable sections. Bending is the creation of three-dimensional shapes out of two-dimensional material, and is a fast, economical way to produce an endless variety of parts from sheet metal and plate.
Progressive Die Design DVD
Progressive dies perform fundamental cutting and forming operations simultaneously at various stations within a die during each press stroke. This program, part of the Fundamentals of Tool Design Video Series, explores the essential design variables used in part/strip development that contribute to part quality, progressive die tool maintenance, tool life, and tool cost.
Cutting Tool Design DVD
Cutting tools have many shapes, each of which is described by its angles or geometry. This program, part of the Fundamentals of Tool Design Video Series, explores single-point and multi-point cutting tool geometries as well as the machining variables that affect the cutting tool design.
