Introduction of metal stamping shrapnel

The copper parts in the general household socket can ensure the smooth current and reduce the heat-hazard components. Thick copper sheet, improve current passing ability, reduce the resistance of copper parts; anti-oxidation, no rust, reduce the increase of resistance due to rust and heat generation; less riveting, preferably a whole piece of copper, further reduce…

Correct use of mandrel in processing of bent pipe

Nowadays, bending pipe processing technology has spread to all walks of life, such as the now very hot automobile industry and aerospace industry, etc., all kinds of bending pipe products are often used. For these industries, the quality of bent pipe processing products will directly affect the structural rationality, safety and reliability of the products…

In which industries can bend pipe processing be applied

Elbow processing is very common, and different industries have different uses. Many people know elbows. However, they often do not have a comprehensive understanding of the applications of elbow processing. A variety of elbows are used in some pipelines, such as vessel pipelines, car fuel pipelines and other pipelines. Compared with other types of elbows,…

3D printing of transparent materials: what are your options?

With the recent acceleration of industrial upgrading in various industries, 3D printing technology has made progress, and R & D personnel have gradually become accustomed to using 3D printers in projects that produce transparent objects. The transparency of product materials is pursued in many industry applications: from the production of lenses for optical engineering or…

What are the materials of the transparent 3D printed model ?

If you want an effective transparent 3D printing model, what is the most critical point? Of course, it is the choice of materials. After all, the materials that can be used in the 3D printing model are those. Some are white and some are yellow. If you need a color effect, you can paint later,…

What are the causes of dents in plastic mold processing

As a processing technology, plastic mold processing, after its production or completion, will be somewhat defective. How to solve this situation? 1. Dent. The causes of dents are: 1) Insufficient cooling of the mold, insufficient cooling time will cause serious deformation. 2) This situation also occurs when the internal pressure of the mold is insufficient….
