Plastics Finishing

This Plastics Finishing program includes information on the array of plastics finishing processes, arranging them into four categories: degating, deflashing, cleaning, and decorating. The Degating section includes segments on manual degating and the various automated tooling devices. The Deflashing section covers the cutting and trimming, media blasting and cryogenic deflashing processes. The Cleaning segment features the ways in which contaminants infiltrate the molding process and how parts are cleaned for secondary decorative operations. The Decorating section features lengthy examinations of the following processes: painting, plating, vacuum metallizing, pad printing, hot stamping, silk screening, and fill-and-wipe.

Sheet Metal Shearing and Bending

This program examines two of the oldest manufacturing processes: shearing and bending. Shearing is the cutting of sheet metal by means of two opposing blades. It is used to cut large sheets of material into smaller more manageable sections. Bending is the creation of three-dimensional shapes out of two-dimensional material, and is a fast, economical way to produce an endless variety of parts from sheet metal and plate.

Heat Treating

This Heat Treating program highlights the versatility of heat treating in altering the metallurgical properties of metals and alloys. This versatility is broken down into three groups of processes: through hardening processes, surface hardening processes and softening processes. The Through Hardening Processes segment utilizes animations, phase diagrams and photomicrographs to explain the hardening process and define its many variables. Quenching speed, quenching mediums and temperature control are examined, as well as the tempering, martempering, and austempering of heat treated materials. The Surface Hardening Processes segment offers detailed examples of the processes that produce surface, or case hardened parts. Included are explanations of: flame hardening, induction hardening, carburizing, nitriding and carbonitriding. The Softening Processes segment examines the use of annealing, normalizing and stress relieving within the heat treating process.

Computer Numerical Control

This program explains the basics of Computer Numerical Control, or CNC, by featuring segments on: Computer Numerical Control Principles and Computer Numerical Control Programming. The CNC Principles segment highlights the rectangular coordinate system and its use in generating precision tool paths. Integral elements of the rectangular coordinate system are presented, including: program zero, coordinate points, coordinate polarity, the absolute mode, the incremental mode, quadrants, and the various axes of motion. The CNC Programming segment features the step-by-step examination of CNC part program commands and their various letter addresses and numeric values. Also presented are discussions of point-to-point positioning, contouring, interpolation, compensations, special programming features, manual programming, computer-aided part design, or CAD, and computer-aided manufacturing, or CAM.
