Cutting Tool Geometries
This program begins with an introduction to the core concepts regarding measurement. These concepts include precision, resolution, accuracy, repeatability, and reproducibility. Standards are addressed featuring sections on gage blocks and surface plates.
Deburring processes are used to finish sharp, undesirable part edges that are produced during cutting and stamping operations. This program includes information on an array of deburring processes including cutting processes, power brushing, bonded abrasive finishing, mass finishing, abrasive blasting, abrasive-flow deburring, thermal deburring, and electro-chemical deburring.
As every new product is being designed, most manufacturing companies are developing FMEA documents to reduce the risk of product failures. In addition, quality standards like ISO9000 and QS9000 require an FMEA on all new products. To shorten development cycles, many different experts are involved in the design and testing phases of new products.
Continuous Improvement-Sustaining the Effort
This program demonstrates how predictive and preventive maintenance techniques can bring an end to crisis maintenance. You'll see how total productive maintenance (TPM) keeps equipment operating at design specs and gets more output from smaller facilities.
Extrusion is the deformation of either metal or plastic forced under pressure through a die to create a shape. Part of the Fundamental Manufacturing Processes Video Series, this unique program is an introduction to both plastic extrusion and metal extrusion processes.
This Filament Winding program examines both the wet winding and dry winding processes.
While lean is a popular term on the shop floor, this program will show you a company that didn't stop there. A global leader in particle separation equipment, SWECO applied lean from the office to the loading dock. Part of the award-winning Manufacturing Insights Video Series, this program shows how applying lean techniques, such as kanban, visual boards, 5S, and pre-staged kits helped SWECO increase profits. At the same time, the company improved quality, reduced costs and better served its customers.
