Prototyping Materials. How do you decide what metal to use?

Prototyping materials like aluminum, stainless steel, beryllium copper, cold-rolled steel, phosphor bronze, titanium, 17-7 Ph, inconel, and monel are just some of the common choices stocked at metal service centers. So which is best for the application ? Now you have to decide what temper you need. Soft, 1/4 hard, half hard, hard, spring temper …

Wire EDM Machines & Electrical Discharge Machining

Electrical Discharge Machining means cutting conductive materials under water with a continually moving brass wire of different diameters that NEVER touches the work piece.  The spark moves through the water across the tiny gap and vaporizes the metal. This means any conductive material and without concern about hardness which is a formidable variable for machining. …

Why Precision Parts Should be Measured by a Keyence Handheld Probe Coordinate Measuring Machine

The challenge of making precision parts these days can be truly formidable. Tolerances that would have almost defied your imagination years ago are now taken for granted every single day. Holding hole diameters to plus or minus .002″ and true positions to almost perfection are demanded these days by engineers to insure that their precision …

Precision Prototyping for the Aerospace Industry

Like those in any industry, aerospace manufacturing projects often run on tight budgets and strict schedules. Additionally, the nature of the industry leaves no room for error in the final product, and parts and materials must meet exacting standards. Prototyping plays an important role in meeting these requirements, allowing engineers to test their component designs …
