Thermoforming Materials | Vacuum Forming Materials | Pressure Forming Materials

Thermoforming Materials: Thermoforming is a manufacturing process where a plastic sheet is heated to a pliable forming temperature, formed to a specific shape in a mold, and trimmed to create a usable product. There is a wide range of thermoforming materials that provide just the right properties for your plastic formed product, and each material has physical…

Pressure Forming | Pressure Thermoforming | Blow Forming

Pressure Forming process: The pressure Forming is the process used to produce injection mold quality, high definition plastic component parts, housings and containers without the huge expense of tooling. It involves positive pressure to force the heated plastic into the mold cavity. This is called pressure thermoforming or blow forming. Pressure Forming Working Operation: The…

Two types of programming modes, the incremental system and the absolute system, are used for CNC. Both systems have applications in CNC programming, and no system is either right or wrong all the time. Most controls on machine tools today are capable of handling either incremental or absolute programming.   Incremental program locations are always…

Brazing Technology | How To Brazing | Brazing Joints | Brazing Filler and Flux

Brazing Technology is a joining process in which a filler metal is melted and dispersed by capillary action between the faying surfaces of the metal parts being joined. No melting of the base metals occurs in brazing; only the filler metals are melted. In brazing, the filler metal (also called as brazing metal), has a melting point is above 840° F (450° C) but below the melting point of the base metal to be joined. Tensile strength of the joint is about 40000 psi.
