Aluminum alloy cnc processing operation principle and use method

Aluminum alloy CNC machining has great advantages over manual machining. For example, the aluminum alloy parts produced by CNC machining are very accurate and repeatable; aluminum alloy CNC machining can produce parts with complex shapes that cannot be manually processed. So how much do you know about the operating principles of aluminum alloy CNC machining?…

Introduction to Polyether Ether Ketone (PEEK)

Poly-ether-ether-ketone (PEEK) is a thermoplastic special engineering plastic with excellent performance in abrasion resistance, temperature resistance, corrosion resistance, etc., which can meet various complex Material requirements of parts and components under working conditions and harsh environments. In recent years, with the introduction of domestic PEEK raw materials, the price of raw materials has been reduced,…

The automation of sheet metal processing is the general trend

Sheet metal processing has always been an important part of the metal manufacturing industry. With the rapid development of China’s economy in recent years, China’s sheet metal processing industry is also booming. However, compared with foreign sheet metal processing models, due to the late start of sheet metal processing in China, there are still certain…

Classification of sheet metal processing cabinets

Sheet metal processing cabinets are classified into equipment cabinets and wiring cabinets by function. In the design of sheet metal cabinet processing, we must not only consider the use of sheet metal cabinets, but also adjust the space design and adjustment of sheet metal according to the equipment assembly of sheet metal cabinets. Load capacity….

Causes and solutions of pores in aluminum alloy castings

In the production process of aluminum alloy castings, stomata defects often occur due to improper operation or unskilled processes. Once the blowhole appears, it will often cause the casting to be scrapped due to quality problems and increase production costs. However, there are many reasons for the blowhole defects in aluminum alloy castings. Many companies…

What is the difference between aluminum alloy casting and die-casting aluminum alloy?

Aluminum casting is divided into aluminum alloy casting and high-pressure casting in general. It is often said that die casting refers to high-pressure die casting, which uses a die-casting machine to compact the molten aluminum alloy profile in a high-speed mold and rapidly cool it under high pressure. And usually casting is divided into sand…

Aluminum alloy gravity casting process structure and performance advantages

In the process of aluminum alloy gravity casting, as the shape of its castings is different, the casting molds of its products are also different. Even if it is the same part, the mold form is often different with different casting processes, but in any case Aluminum alloy gravity casting molds still have their commonalities….

Aluminum alloy processing method classification

Aluminum alloy processing methods can be divided into two categories: deformed aluminum alloys and cast aluminum alloys: Deformed aluminum alloy can withstand pressure processing. It can be processed into various shapes and specifications of aluminum alloy materials. Mainly used for manufacturing aviation equipment, doors and windows for construction, etc. Deformable aluminum alloys are divided into…

The main types and characteristics of gear transmission

The main types and characteristics of gear transmission Gear transmission: Gear transmission is achieved by driving the driven gear in turn to drive the driven gear. One of its basic requirements is that the ratio of its instantaneous angular velocity must remain unchanged. Classification of gear transmission: There are many types of gear transmission. According…
