CIM Material Processes

 

HWMT BrochureYour students really need to know how things are made in industry, so below are some resources to help you get started with the learning process. My students became an “expert” in one particular field, picked a topic, and made a brochure about a specific manufacturing process. Part of their research was to find a great video that explains the process. The links to all of the videos, as well as some of their brochures as well.

Prototyping

Fused Deposition Modeling (FDM): is an additive manufacturing technology commonly used for modeling, prototyping, and production applications. It is one of the techniques used for 3D printing.

 .
 Selective Laser Sintering (SLS):  is an additive manufacturing (AM) technique that uses a laser as the power source to sinter powdered material (typically metal), aiming the laser automatically at points in space defined by a 3D model, binding the material together to create a solid structure.

 .
 Stereolithography (SL):  is a form of 3-D printing technology used for creating models, prototypes, patterns, and production parts in a layer by layer fashion using photopolymerization, a process by which light causes chains of molecules to link together, forming polymers.

.
 Laminated Object Manufacturing (LOM): is a rapid prototyping system. In it, layers of adhesive-coated paper, plastic, or metal laminates are successively glued together and cut to shape with a knife or laser cutter.

 Separating

.
CNC Milling is  the most common form of computer numerical control (CNC) machining, performs the functions of both drilling and turning machines. CNC mills are categorized according to their number of axis and are traditionally programmed using a set of codes that represent specific functions.

 .
 CNC Turning refers to the automated machining process of shaping material, such as metal, wood or plastic, using a computer numeric control (CNC) machine. Turning is usually done when making round parts.

 .
Waterjet Cutting:  is a form capable of cutting a wide variety of materials using a very high-pressure jet of water, or a mixture of water and an abrasive substance.

.
Laser Cutting  is a technology that uses a laser to cut materials, and is typically used for industrial manufacturing applications, but is also starting to be used by schools, small businesses, and hobbyists. Laser cutting works by directing the output of a high-power laser most commonly through optics.

 Casting

 .
Drop Forging  is the process of heating metal and hammering it in to a special die (cast die) to produce a final product. Manufacturers use the drop forging process to produce hardware products which need to be strong and durable.

.
Die Casting  is a metal casting process that is characterized by forcing molten metal under high pressure into a mould cavity. The mould cavity is created using two hardened tool steel dies which have been machined into shape and work similarly to an injection mould during the process. Most die castings are made from non-ferrous metals, specifically zinc, copper, aluminium, magnesium, lead, pewter and tin-based alloys. Depending on the type of metal being cast, a hot- or cold-chamber machine is used.

.
Investment Casting is an industrial process based on lost-wax casting, one of the oldest known metal-forming techniques.[1] The term “lost-wax casting” can also refer to modern investment casting processes.Investment casting has been used in various forms for the last 5,000 years. In its earliest forms, beeswax was used to form patterns necessary for the casting process. Today, more advanced waxes, refractory materials and specialist alloys are typically used for making patterns. Investment casting is valued for its ability to produce components with accuracy, repeatability, versatility and integrity in a variety of metals and high-performance alloys.
