Annealing Heat Treatment

Annealing: A Heat Treatment Process for Improved Strength and Ductility

Annealing is a heat treatment process that alters the microstructure of a material and thereby changes its mechanical properties. It is often used to improve the material’s strength and hardness or to make it more malleable and easier to work with. Annealing is common in various industries where metals must be worked into complex structures …

Tolerances in CNC Machining

Basic Guide of Tolerances in CNC Machining

In CNC machining, high-precision CNC equipment can achieve very high levels of accuracy. Still, the CNC machined part’s dimensions cannot fully meet the theoretical values because of the different materials, designs, and machining processes. So the dimensions that meet the manufacturing standards should have a reasonable range of variation. That’s the tolerances in CNC machining.  …

Different Aluminum Anodizing Color

Anodized Aluminum Colors: Knowing Anodizing Color Matching

An appropriate surface finish to the product is essential after the manufacturing process. Many manufacturers choose anodizing as one of the ideal surface finish processes. Anodizing is an electrochemical technique that imparts a decorative, durable, and corrosion-resistant finish to a metal surface. Anodizing provides a micro-thin aluminum oxide layer completely bonded to the aluminum substrate. …
