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.
This program includes information on pattern and core production methods, and covers an array of casting processes, arranging them into three major categories: Expendable Mold/Reusable Pattern Processes, Expendable Mold/Expendable Pattern Processes, and Permanent Mold/No Pattern Processes.
This Fastening and Assembly program focuses on the primary fasteners and assembly processes used and includes sections on mechanical fastening, adhesive bonding, and automated assembly.

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.
This video highlights the seven deadly wastes found in both administrative offices and in manufacturing processes. In this enjoyable but effective training tool, the simple process of making toast is used to represent the before condition and the target condition of a manufacturing or transaction-based process.
