Powder metallurgy is a metalworking technology used for producing parts from metal powder. Advantages include part design flexibility and the ability to produce net or near-net shaped parts. This Powder Metallurgy program illustrates the metal powder production process, and the part production processes using those powders.
This Hydroforming program examines the basic materials, tools, and techniques of tubular hydroforming and sheet metal hydroforming.
This Breakthrough Kaizen Events program shows an actual kaizen event at the Lantech Corp. where a total of more than 100 improvements were completed. Several new devices are demonstrated so the viewer can understand how the changes improved the process. See how they use a kaizen newspaper to keep everyone informed of any changes that are being made.
A review of the Plastic Injection Mold program content.
The use of compression molding in high volume, high quality composite parts production is featured prominently in this Compression Molding program. The various sheet, thick and bulk molding compounds are detailed as well as mold types used. The transfer molding process, which is a technological extension of compression molding is also highlighted. This program is part of an eight program Composites Manufacturing series.
Manual composite layup and spray up are the most common methods of producing composite parts. This Manual Composite Layup & Spray Up program follows each process thoroughly, detailing each step from molds preparation through to the curing of finished layups and spray ups. The use of vacuum bag molding and autoclave molding to further consolidate layups and spray ups is also presented. This program is part of an eight program Composites Manufacturing series.
This Liquid Molding program encompasses several process variations of typically low-viscosity resin systems which are used in the production of detailed, high quality composite parts. Just a few of the liquid molding processes featured includes: resin transfer molding and vacuum Infusion.
Quality tooling is a fundamental requirement for the manufacture of composite parts. This is due to the fact that every step in the composite part manufacturing process must be tightly controlled to ensure superior material properties and predictable performance in the final product. This Composite Tooling Design program explores the composite materials used for tooling, and tooling design.
Datums are reference measurement surfaces, planes, or points from which other part features are measured. By using the 14 geometric characteristic symbols along with datum references the functional requirement of a part or assembly can be effectively communicated. The proper identification and usage of datums in GD&T is explored.
