Geometric Dimensioning and Tolerancing Fundamentals: Form Controls & Datums DVD

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.

Composite Materials and Manufacturing DVD

This program explains the basics of composite materials and manufacturing by featuring segments on: composite matrix and reinforcement materials, composite manufacturing processes, and composite fabrication and joining methods. The first segment features the primary types of matrix and reinforcement materials, as well as the various forms in which they are available.

Brazing and Soldering DVD

Both brazing and soldering are common methods of joining metals, with uses in various industrial applications. This program covers the array of common brazing and soldering methods, including torch brazing, batch furnace brazing, continuous furnace brazing, dip brazing, induction brazing, iron soldering, and wave soldering.

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.

Heat Treating DVD

This program highlights the versatility of heat treating in altering the metallurgical properties of metals and alloys. This versatility is broken down into three groups of processes: through hardening processes, surface hardening processes, and softening processes.

Gears and Gear Manufacturing DVD

This program introduces many primary gear terms and definitions, including involute curve, base circle, pitch circle, pitch point, line of action, outside circle, root circle, and many others. Also featured are the various gear forms, functions, axis positions, and gear machining and finishing processes.

Visual Controls DVD

This program explains how visual controls are developed and used in a factory environment to help identify production problems quickly. In the program examples, you will see visual controls used to manage inventory, schedule maintenance, and clearly mark machine and tool locations. Other examples show the benefits of posting key goals and the motivational effects of successful communication.
