Business and industrial systems depend on armies of technological components. To perform their jobs correctly, everything from healthcare tools to fuel distribution devices must incorporate high-quality parts that are engineered to withstand routine wear and abnormal abuse.
To meet the demand, many parts are designed to exceed usage and quality standards. Such practices place increased responsibility on the metal fabrication enterprises that create the components in the first place. Continue reading
While you might not need the metal components you’re making to be shiny, a lapping machine can be used to create a flat, uniform surface, improving manufacturing precision and aiding in the creation of complex shapes. The main factor in getting good results from a lapping machine comes down to the design of the lapping carrier.
How a Lapping Machine Works
The lapping carrier, sometimes called a “work holder,” holds parts inside the lapping machine, maintaining a parallel orientation between the part and the polishing surface. This carrier spins while a polishing plate passes underneath it, moving abrasives against the part surface in an orbital pattern. To keep the parts in place, a large weight or jig pushes down on the both the parts and the carrier. In double-sided lapping machines, the positioning tool has its own polishing surface. As the abrasive rubs against the part, the surface is milled, removing scratches, trash and minor manufacturing imperfections. Continue reading
Laser cutting has been popular since the 1970s. Today, new fabrication methods continue to advance product designs in diverse industries from automotive manufacturing to health care. Here are five reasons why designers and engineers choose lasers over other metal cutting systems.
1. Shorter Lead Times
Lasers create prototypes rapidly and at lower costs. Rapid prototyping shortens a critical part of the design process that reduces the time to market. The equipment is suitable for small or large production runs that are needed on short schedules. Lasers deliver optimal results when production time is critical for on-time project completion.

People have used insect traps and repellents for years, but many effective practices for ridding pests aren’t as well known. Create your own “No Fly Zone“. An example of this is the Big Stinky Fly Trap which incorporates tube bending to create small traps for common pests. This device is very effective in capturing and killing insects that are known to breed quickly and cause damage to local ecosystems and habitats.
What is it?
The shape of the Big Stinky Fly Trap is comparable to that of a light bulb. A bent glass or plastic “bulb” is fixed to a component that can hang from trees, plant hooks, or gets attached to different areas outside of the home. The upper plastic housing has holes that allow insects to enter. Continue reading
How do you define the quality of your fabricated metal products? Do you track factors like manufacturing speed or cost? Perhaps you rely on end users to let you know when you’re doing a good job. Regardless whether you’re primarily concerned with economic feasibility, timetables or public opinion, tolerance is the underlying metric that makes superior metal fabrication possible.
What Is Tolerance?
In the world of precise engineering, tolerance is a measurement that gauges how much of a deviation from the target is acceptable. For instance, suppose you’re creating a part that’s meant to be 50 mm long. A tolerance of ±1 mm would mean that it could still function adequately if it were actually between 49 and 51 mm long.

Handsome golf and tennis shirts and shorts for women are sure to attract plenty of attention in a store, but a retail display can help shoppers focus on them. To create an impression, it must have something special to make a customer want to buy a new outfit. Customers who walk past a counter do not make the cash register ring, but a glass top on an aluminum frame can draw the attention that the fashions deserve. Our aluminum fabrication reflects the quality of the stylish outfits that the finest shops offer. Continue reading
