The Plastic Extrusion segment explores components of the screw extrusion machine and common feedstock and materials. The two most prevalent plastic extrusion processes, profile extrusion and blown film extrusion, are also extensively detailed.
By using GD&T, a print can explicitly call out necessary tolerances in an unambiguous fashion. Using shop floor footage and animations to illustrate examples, this program introduces the viewer to GD&T rules and concepts. The 14 symbols used in GD&T are highlighted with examples to define their use.
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.
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 Plastics Machining segment highlights the use of sawing, milling, routing, turning, waterjet cutting, laser cutting, drilling and the secondary holemaking operations, such as tapping and reaming. The importance of coolant used while machining plastics is also explored in detail.
This Plastics Finishing program includes information on the array of plastics finishing processes, arranging them into four categories: degating, deflashing, cleaning, and decorating.
Composites Manufacturing Series Sampler
Computer-aided design or CAD involves the use of computers and software to digitally create engineering drawings and models to aid in tooling and product design. This program, part of the Fundamentals of Tool Design Video Series, explores the tools and techniques used within four fundamental computer-aided design categories.
Training Within Industry shows you how the four modules of training within industry (TWI), job relations (JR), job instruction (JI), job methods (JM), and job safety (JS) work together to sustain lean manufacturing.
