Most manufacturers rely on laser cutting as a highly efficient process for achieving precision cuts in many different materials. The manufacturing industry produces many different types of products, ranging from plastics to glass and steel. Laser cutting allows for each of these materials (and many more) to be subjected to laser energy. The energy provides small focal diameters that allow for utmost precision cutting during various manufacturing processes.
If you're wondering which materials are good candidates for laser cutting, this piece will explore some of the most commonly used items.
When fabricating metal, you have to not only think about the usability of the resulting metals, but also the many aesthetic benefits which you are likely to get from the process. For instance, a process such as powder coating makes it possible to have a fabricated metal part available in a number of colours depending on your needs. However, there is more to the process of powder coating than just getting great colours.
If you are a subdivision contractor and developer, you may know about soil thermal resistivity testing. You may know that this process needs to happen in order for cabling to be placed underground throughout the subdivision. What you may not know is what the process entails and what each step may mean for your subdivision plans. Here are three main points you should know about the soil thermal resistivity testing.
When you need a fast, easy way of joining together two metal sheets spot welding is a fast and simple solution. Spot welding works by pressing together the two pieces of metal and placing an electrode on each side of where the joint will be. Passing an electrical current between the electrodes will result in a joint being formed in the metal.
Why choose spot welding?
There are lots of reasons why spot welding is often the preferred method of joining pieces of metal.
An engineering discipline, mechatronics is the branch of the profession which handles the convergence between mechanical and electrical manufacturing systems. As such, it is often thought of by the industry as going hand-in-hand with related fields, such as robotics. A multi-disciplinary field of engineering, mechatronics requires an engineer to be well-versed in control processes, telecommunications systems, electronics, computer engineering and mechanical principles. As such, it tends to attract academically gifted engineers and those who have a grasp of processes across several industry sectors.
