Additive or Subtractive Manufacturing?

Before prototyping or manufacturing a product, it is important to consider all the different manufacturing processes which are available, as well as the strengths and

Engineered blow molding : Basic concepts

Process Advantages Engineered blow molding offers a highly versatile process for fabricating parts. Effective designs for its blow molding take advantage of the inherent advantages

Electro-discharge machining (EDM)

Electro-discharge machining (EDM)

Electro-Discharge Machining (EDM) is machining with sparks. The work-piece is held in a jig submerged in a dielectric fluid such as kerosene. A power supply

Tips on Injection Mold Tooling Design

Injection moulding is one of the most common manufacturing methods to produce thin-wall engineered parts. Development of moulds that produce high quality parts is a

laser beam machining

Laser Beam Machining (LBM)

Laser Beam Machining: A coherent beam of monochromatic light is focused on the workpiece causing material removal by vaporisation. Machines are generally CAD/CAM compatible, with

Ultrasonic machining (USM)

The tool, which is a negative of the workpiece, is vibrated at around 20KHz with and amplitude of between 0.013mm and 0.1mm in abrasive slurry

Plasma Arc Cutting (PAC)

Plasma Arc Cutting (PAC)

Plasma Arc Cutting is a metal cutting process that uses a high temperature stream of ionised gas through a water-cooled nozzle at very high velocity.
