Forging

This Forging program begins by outlining forging's function in refining the metallurgical microstructure of wrought mills forms, and it's use in generating parts to near-net shape from these forms. Featured are segments on the various types of forging processes, including: Open-Die Forging, Impression-Die Forging, and Related Forging Processes.

Casting

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.

Breakthrough Kaizen Events

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.

Deburring Processes Introduction

Deburring processes are used to finish sharp, undesirable part edges that are produced during cutting and stamping operations. This Deburring Processes 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.

Painting and Powder Coating

This program begins with an introduction to the basic elements of all paint formulations including pigments, additives, solvents, and resins. Viscosity and volatile organic compounds (VOC) are also explained. The two types of resin polymer structures, enamels and lacquers, are explained with an emphasis on the crosslinking aspect of enamels.

Die Casting

Die casting is a high precision, rapid parts-production process involving the high pressure injection of molten metal into a die having a cavity of the desired part shape. This program explores the common die cast metals and their various properties, as well as die casting machines and die cast tooling.

Injection Machine Controls

The Injection Machine Controls segment features the functions of the various controls and the use of computers in mold design and construction.

The Injection Mold

The Injection Mold segment details and defines mold terms as the molten thermoplastic material is formed, cooled, and ejected as a final part. Also featured are the common mold types, including the two-plate cold runner mold, three-plate cold runner mold, the hot runner mold, and the insulated runner mold.

The Injection Molding Machine

The Injection Molding Machine segment covers in detail both the injection system and the clamping system. In step by step progression, thermoplastic material is followed from its raw material state through the melting process and onto it's injection into the mold. Throughout the sequence, various components of the injection machine are explained, including the reciprocating screw, and the various machine platens.
