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…

Interpolation The method by which contouring machine tools move from one programmed point to the next is called interpolation. This ability to merge individual axis points into a predefined tool path is built into most of today’s MCUs. There are five methods of interpolation: linear circular helical parabolic cubic All contouring controls provide linear interpolation,…

Programming Systems | CNC programming Basics | G-Code | M-Code | Incremental and Absolute Programming System

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…

Computer Numerical Control | CNC | What Is CNC | How CNC Works | Programming Basics

The term numerical control is a widely accepted and commonly used term in the machine tool industry. Numerical control (NC) enables an operator to communicate with machine tools through a series of numbers and symbols. NC which quickly became Computer Numerical Control (CNC) has brought tremendous changes to the metalworking industry. New machine tools in…

Heat Treatment | Purpose of Heat Treatment

HEAT TREATMENT The strength toughness of the base material are determined by its chemical composition and the heat treatment it undergoes. Low carbon steel is easily available and cheap having all material properties that are acceptable for many applications. Low carbon steel contains carbon contain of 0.15% to 0.45%. Heat treatment on low carbon steel…

Aerogel | World’s Lightest Material | Aerogel Lighter Than Air | Aerogel Insulation

Aerogel is a very special type of foam which is 99.8% air. Aerogel is a low-density solid-state material derived from gel in which the liquid component of the gel has been replaced with gas. The result is an extremely low density solid with several remarkable properties, most notably its effectiveness as a thermal insulator. Aerogels…
