INDUSTRY NEWS

Automate a CNC Machine in 2 to 3 Hours with Cobots

The labor shortage is an ongoing concern in manufacturing, as the COVID-19 pandemic triggered employee moves across industries and put in place new guidelines for sick days and isolations at many manufacturing facilities. In short, it’s now more difficult to fill factory positions. For decades, automation has been touted as the solution to labor shortages—to […]

Effects of CNC Machining on Surface Roughness in Fused Deposition Modelling Products

Fused deposition modelling (FDM) is a 3D printing technology that uses melted plastic filament to build up objects layer by layer. FDM parts are typically made from thermoplastic materials such as ABS, PLA, or PC. Once the object is printed, it can be finished using various methods, such as sanding, painting, or machining. CNC machining […]

All About Sand Casting – What it is and How it Works

Metal casting is one of the most basic yet most useful manufacturing methods available to designers. These processes involve pouring molten metal inside of a preformed mold, which becomes a finalized part when cooled. The ability to shape metal without the need for machining has allowed for the mass production of complex parts that are […]

What’s the Difference Between Investment Casting and Sand Casting?

Sand casting and investment casting are methods of creating metal parts by pouring molten metal into three-dimensional molds. Although methods are thousands of years old, both have been refined over the years to minimize the amount of metal used and reduce any extensive machining and finishing required. But significant differences exist between these two methods […]
