Step by Step stages of sand casting

sand casting steps

Any metal alloy, ferrous or otherwise, can be cast using the common casting method known as sand casting. It is frequently employed in industrial settings for mass manufacturing of components for automobiles made of metal casting, such as engine blocks, cylinder heads, crankshafts, etc. The process of sand casting can be categorized into seven. Step […]

What are the types of casting processes?

What are the types of casting processes

Making items by pouring molten metal into a blank, shaped space is known as metal casting. The metal then hardens and cools into the shape that this shaped mold has provided for it. If an item needs to be machined out of a solid piece of metal, casting is frequently a less expensive option. There […]

Understanding creep in a material

concrete quality test and creep level determined

Creep, sometimes known as cold flow, is the tendency of a solid material to move slowly or undergo irreversible deformation when subjected to ongoing mechanical loads. It can happen as a result of prolonged exposure to high-stress levels that are still below the material’s yield strength. Long-term heat exposure makes creep more severe, and it […]

Understanding extrusion process

Extrusion processes

The extrusion process is one of the most common processes in the production world today. It involves the use of a large variety of materials like metals, plastics, ceramics, etc. The process can be done in either hot or cold when better properties are required. Extrusion processes in metals may increase the strength of the […]

Understanding centrifugal pump

centrifugal pump

In industry today, centrifugal pumps are one of the most commonly used types. It is used to transport fluid by the conversion of rotational kinetic energy to the hydrodynamic energy of the fluid flow. This energy typically comes from an engine or electric motor. Today you’ll get to know the definition, functions, applications, components, classifications, […]

Everything you need to know about cutting fluid

cutting fluid

Due to the advancement of technology, machining processes have brought about the usage of cutting fluid. Cutting fluid is a type of coolant and lubricant used by metalworkers to prolong the working of a cutting tool. the substance also helps to easily cut out hard material without wearing out the tool. There are various types […]

Understanding the processing and fabrication of plastics

The processing and fabrication of plastics involve various stages. Plastics today have become inevitable in our daily life, which has caused the demand for plastic to be drastically high. Plastic industries would prefer to recycle plastic materials and convert them into something different. For example, the conversion of plastic pellets into films or the conversion […]

Different types of metals and their classifications

types of metals

There are various types of metals out there suitable for specific applications. Even though metals are made by mining ore from within the earth. They are extracted from rocks in a large-scale industrial process. Leaving that aside, our purpose here is to discuss the different types of metals and their functions. But before that, different […]

Understanding the various types of residual stress

residual stress of a material

In solid materials, residual stress is stresses that remain in them after their original cause of stress is removed. Residual stress can be useless and useful in a material. that is, it may be desirable or undesirable. Unintended residual stress in a material may cause it to fail prematurely, while it can be used in […]

Everything you need to know about keys and keyways (keyed joints)

diagram of key and keyways

In the mechanical engineering field, keyed joints are made up of keys and keyways. These keys can be machined into different forms depending on the type of key joints required. Keyways are machined surfaces on a shaft in the dimension of the key. They are fixed together to ensure no pulling apart of components and […]
