    Press brake forming-The fundamental advantage of a press brake as a forming tool is its flexibility. By using standard vee-dies, cost savings can be realized through economical set-ups and run times on small lots and prototypes. In addition to these considerations, using the following guidelines
  • Powder-metal parts earn top honors
    for atypical PM components. The winning parts in this competition represent advances in conventional press and sinter PM processing, metal injection molding (MIM), and hot-isostatic pressing (HIP). The superconducting dipole cryomagnets in the LHC operate at cryogenic temperatures (–456°F). The complex
  • Split-Pinion Ensures Precise Positioning on Material Feed Axis
    A punch press manufacturer needed to precisely position a sheet of metal in order to accurately punch parts. The material feed axis had to have high repeatability and no lost motion.

    , and fully automatic assembly, as well as subassembly. Stamped, cast, machined, and fabricated sheet-metal parts and injection-molded, extruded, cast, and fabricated sheet-plastic parts are assembled into prototypes, sample devices for clinical testing, or final devices by a variety of techniques. Hot-melt
  • Fastening in a clinch
    Self-clinching fasteners permanently join thin metal panels. Self-clinching panel fasteners join thin metal sheets with minimal hardware, and keep screws from falling into other components. Right-angle fasteners clinch into a rectangular hole in one sheet and attach to a second sheet at a right

    . Two brothers and a brother-in-law started the company in 1989, says John West, president of Fox Valley. "They saw there was a lot of potential to specialize in sheet metal work, focusing on stainless steel and aluminum. " The founders created a niche doing this type of work and have continued to reap

    photolithography to create a mask and replicate that pattern on a sheet of material that already has metal deposited on it through a variety of techniques," Sablich explains. "Then, a variety of acids are used to etch away the metal that they don't want - leaving them with the metal they do want. Etching yields
