Inconel

Inconel is an austenitic nickel-chromium-based super alloy that is usually utilized in high temperature applications. It can resist corrosion and oxidation, and it is also able to retain and maintain its structural integrity in high temperature environments. Inconel is commonly used in chemical processing, nuclear power, and petrochemical facilities. Because of its toughness, Inconel is an excellent choice for sea and aerospace applications. Inconel is also a material that continues to be a great challenge in the fabricating and metal cutting industries due to its toughness. So, what makes Inconel tough to work? The answer is rapid work hardening. Inconel is …

Titanium

Titanium has excellent properties that set it apart from other metals. Its durability and strength make it viable for a variety of applications. Titanium can be alloyed with aluminum, molybdenum, iron, manganese, and other metals. It also possesses exceptional corrosion resistance and a high melting point. Titanium has a relatively low density and the highest strength to weight ratio of any metal. This is why it is a widely used metal in a variety of engineering applications. These unique properties allow for titanium use in aircraft engines and their parts, spacecraft, missiles, ships, automobiles, prosthetics, architectural elements, and even in oil and chemical industries. Medical, aircraft, …

Bandsaws and Cold Saws

Bandsaws and cold saws are both made in order to help lessen the burden of machine shops tasked with cutting a variety of materials for industrial use. Both types of machine may be excellent at proving purpose, but these two machines are also quite different. Both the bandsaw and the cold saw differ in the type of blade used during a cutting operation. A cold saw uses a blade with circular teeth made of high speed steel or tungsten-tipped jaws. The cold saw is usually supported by an electric motor and gear reduction unit to control speed. A bandsaw uses a flat, continuous band of metal with …

The Table Saw

The table saw is one of the most traditional of all cutting tools. They are used primarily in the home and in some woodworking shops. A type of woodworking tool that consists of a circular saw blade mounted on an arbor. The electric motor is directed by gears or belt. Its blade extends above the surface of the table in order to provide support for the materials that are to be cut. The first circular saw was created around the 16th or 17th century, and in 1777, the first patent for a table saw was given to Samuel Miller. Table …
