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.

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.

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 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.

Sheet Metal Bending

The Sheet Metal Bending segment concentrates mainly on the terms defining a bend, such as the neutral axis, bend allowance, bend radius, and springback, and focuses on the primary bending machine - the press brake. Various examples of press brake dies, gaging, and bending operations, such as air bending, and bottom bending, are shown, as well as, a segment on folding technology.
