How does precision machining affect medical devices ?

Precision machining has tremendous advantages and has changed the way in many industries, including manufacturing, automation, robotics and the aerospace industry. But one of the most important industries for precision machining is the medical industry. Without the innovation and advancement of precision machining, many of the medical advances we enjoy today are impossible. Here, we…

Precision mechanical parts in the process of high precision measurement

In our product design process, sample run of precision machined parts is limited by some of the most rigorous inspection procedures. The test method we use proves to the customer that the part meets the specified tolerances and is free from defects. From magnetic particle inspection to laser scanning, we ensure that each new product…

Why is the custom machining market dominated by CNC machining ?

We understand why the custom processing market is dominated by CNC machine tools. The main reason behind this is the versatility and repeatability of CNC machines. Traditional machines require a manual controller that is prone to small errors. However, the CNC machine is controlled by a computer that converts the cad model of the desired…

Surface treatment of aluminum alloy

Because aluminum is widely used because of its easy processing, good visual effect and rich surface treatment methods, how much do you know about the surface processing technology of aluminum and aluminum alloy in daily products? Brushed rivets and lantern rivets are made of aluminum alloy. Aluminum itself has a waterproof and anti-corrosive effect, while…

Some simple methods for surface processing of stainless steel hardware fittings

Nowadays, most of the products in this society are processed by hardware accessories, but the steps of surface processing of hardware accessories may not be clear to everyone. The most common processing technology for hardware accessories processing is through modern technology. Development of the plating of the surface of the hardware accessories, to ensure that…

Advantages of vacuum coating technology

Compared with wet coating technology, vacuum coating technology has the following advantages: (1) The film and the substrate are widely selected, and the film thickness can be controlled to prepare a functional film having various functions. (2) The film is prepared under vacuum conditions, the environment is clean, and the film is not easily contaminated,…

Why is there a big different in CNC quotation

Cnc processing manufacturers have different advantages, small factories are suitable for proofing, large manufacturers are suitable for large quantities, and must find suitable CNC processing plants according to our own requirements, usually calculated according to the length of product processing time. So how do you calculate the cnc processing price? 1. Problems with the processing…

3D printing is a technology that changes The Times

3D printing, which was born about 30 years ago, is also known as additive manufacturing (AM). At first, 3D printing was only a small hobby, and it was soon used in rapid prototyping (RP) and manufacturing workshops. Faster, lower cost production processes. Nowadays, new production-grade printers and materials that can replace metal and glass-reinforced parts…

Aluminum casting applied to the industry

Aluminum castings are used in detail, construction, hardware, equipment, engineering machinery and other large machinery, machine tools, ships, aerospace, cars, locomotives, electronics, computers, electrical appliances, lamps and other occupations, many of them are ordinary people touching all day, but not Understand the metal objects. Common problems with aluminum castings: 1. The shortcomings of cast aluminum…

Hardening process for cast aluminum parts

Quenching process of cast aluminum parts: In order to prevent the elements from precipitating in the supersaturated solution, it is very important to pass the 200 degree temperature range as fast as possible during quenching. The rate of cooling that maintains supersaturation conditions depends on the composition of the solution. The following is a detailed…
