How Does FEA Save You Money?

How Does FEA Save You Money?

Right now, we’re all keeping an eye on our bottom lines.  With the economy still in flux due to the shakeup brought on by COVID-19, we’re all doing what we can to keep ourselves in the black.

One step you could consider is Finite Element Analysis (FEA).

Those who invest in application generally save time and money in the long run.

Friction Stir Welding: A Short Overview & Current Applications

Friction Stir Welding: A Short Overview & Current Applications

In one form or another, welding has been around for hundreds of years. 

According to the book Friction Stir Welding: From Basics to Applications, “Although joining pieces together can be traced back more than 2,000 years, welding emerged as a viable manufacturing process only in the late 1800s.” It was not until the 1990s, however, that the method we know as friction stir welding emerged. 

In that sense, it’s a “newer” technology. 

Friction Stir Welding meets the Auto Industry’s High-Volume Standard

Friction Stir Welding meets the Auto Industry’s High-Volume Standard

It’s one thing to join pieces of metal together; it’s another to do so without changing their microstructure. The solid state joining process that uses frictional heat generated by a rotating tool has been used for a variety of applications across such industries as aerospace, automotive, shipbuilding and rail.  Today, FSW meets the auto industry’s high volume standard and does so in five ways.

What Makes The Deep Draw Hydroforming Process Work?

What Makes The Deep Draw Hydroforming Process Work?

One of the most important processes in manufacturing is metal forming. The metal forming process is available for the effective production of a variety of products and components. One of the methodologies that can be found in the metal forming category is deep draw hydroforming. The deep draw hydroforming methodology is one that will offer a significant amount of value and efficiency, as well as cost-effectiveness.
