CNC Turning and Milling - Advantages and Applications
In the Computer Numerical Control (CNC) machining process, production equipment and tools are moved according to pre-programmed computer software. The procedure can be used to operate a variety of complicated machinery, including mills, CNC routers, lathes, and grinders.
What are the advantages and applications of CNC Turning and Milling?
PTFE uses, advantages and limitations
Polytetrafluoroethylene, PTFE, or Teflon® as it is often referred to, is a tough, ductile material with excellent thermal properties and outstanding resistance to chemicals and the passage of electric current. PTFE has an exceptionally low coefficient of friction, believed to be lower than any other solid.
Fluoropolymers and PFAS
The current ongoing focus of researchers and regulators into PFAS, which have been used in industry and consumer products since the 1940s because of their useful properties, has prompted concerns about the use and future of Fluoropolymers.
Polymers reducing CO2 in the Aerospace industry
If the weight of a single aircraft is reduced by just one kilogram it will produce 25 tons less carbon dioxide throughout its lifetime!
The potential to reduce CO2 emissions means that manufacturers are constantly looking for lighter and more durable materials.
PTFE Myths Busted
We bust some myths around PTFE
The benefits and applications of PFA
PFA was invented in 1938 by DuPont as a melt processable version of PTFE and is sold under the Teflon brand name.
PFA is a co-polymer product of PTFE. The co-monomer perfluoroalkyl vinyl ether interferes in the crystallinity and molecular weight to achieve good mechanical properties and melt processability without sacrificing thermal performance and chemical resistance...
Why use PEEK as a bearing cage material?
PEEK has been successfully used as a replacement material for bearing cages for many years. In addition to its high performance characteristics it offers weight reduction along with cost savings compared to traditional bearing cage materials such as brass and aluminium.
High Performance Plastics in the Chemical Industry
Because of their superior properties, fluoropolymers have been rapidly replacing metal alloys for corrosion inhibition in chemical processing equipment...
Rotary Shaft Seals in the mining industry
The objective of a rotary shaft seal is to prevent the leakage of oil, grease, and other fluids while also keeping environmental contaminants out. Nowhere is this more important than in the mining industry where vehicles and equipment are generally sealing oil but exposed to the environment.
