As a supplier of fuel nozzles for next generation engines and components, you’re aware of the increasing emphasis to decrease fuel consumption and emissions through the increase of injection system pressures. The goal being to achieve a greater atomization of the fuel as it enters the engine. (more…)
There is extreme interest revolving around Additive Manufacturing. Fully functioning cars were produced using Additive Manufacturing techniques during the 2016 IMTS Show in Chicago – demonstrating the process benefits of the AM Technology.
Additive manufacturing (known also under DLMS; SLM; AM, ALM, 3D Printing) is a process of building parts and components layer by layer, connecting powder particles via an energy source. (more…)
New thermal deburring machine. Extrude Hone brings – the T350 and T450 thermal deburring machines to provide quick reliable solution for complete and simultaneous removal of internal and external burrs.
- To have reliable hydraulic manifolds
- Improved quality by 100% removal of lose burrs, attached burrs and other particles
As 3D printers become more ubiquitous, the question manufacturers are trying to answer is not ‘how do we incorporated industrial 3D printing?’ but ‘how do we incorporate industrial 3D printing better than our competitors?’ Whether your application involves additive layer manufacturing (ALM) or laser sintering, the key that can set your
product above the rest is finishing. (more…)
Improving Crankshaft Manufacturing with Electrochemical Machining
Ensuring sufficient and permanent lubrication of crankshaft bearings in automobile engines is critical for avoiding engine failures. As the crankshaft becomes smaller, due to manufacturing trends and consumer expectations, the number of oil intersection holes increases. All burrs and debris left behind in the drilling process must be removed.
EXTRUDE HONE brings all new MICROFLOW HIGHFLOW solution to meet the high precision flow targeting system requirements of the heavy-duty market (Marine, trucks, off-highway, and diesel power generators).
With climate changes posing significant risk to the society, reducing the fuel consumption and emissions is one of the critical steps in slowing the negative effects of climate change. Medium and heavy-duty vehicles represent a significantly smaller fraction of the number of vehicles on the road but still contribute to more than one-fifth of emissions. Figure 1 represents the stringent emission standards OEMs in the heavy-duty vehicles market face leading to the following challenges: (more…)
Drawing on the combined power, foresight, and expertise of politicians, entrepreneurs, investors, and industry leaders, the Make in India movement hopes to turn the largest democracy in the world into a manufacturing and design hub, sparking new growth and international investment and inspiring confidence in India’s capabilities.
At the beginning of the 21st century, India showed great promise as an emerging market, but by 2013, its growth rate had fallen to the lowest in a decade. Recognizing that part of the problem was government bottlenecks, Prime Minister Nerendra Modi set out to overhaul government policies and procedures to allow businesses more room to thrive. The ultimate goal was a mindset of “minimum government, maximum governance.”
High-performance liquid chromatography (HPLC) is one medical area where manufacturing accuracy and surface finishing are critical. The inner surface of chromatography tubes must be smooth or else false readings or inaccurate separation may occur. Tube manufacturers are limited in the inner surface finish they can offer and will only be interested in improving on it if extremely large orders are at stake. (more…)
Precision electrochemical machining (PECM) is a nonconventional machining process that can help deliver complex and precise components quickly and accurately. It uses electrodes and a pulsed direct current to dissolve practically any electrically conductive metal, including highly tempered steel, rolling bearing steel and alloys. This flexible technology allows metals to be machined into highly complex geometrical shapes for myriad applications, some of which would have been difficult or nearly impossible to create just 30 years ago.
