Engineering Drawings (Fluid Schematics)

Fluid power includes either gas (such as air) or hydraulic (such as water or oil) motive media. Fluid power systems are divided into five basic components: • Pumps • Reservoirs • Actuators • Valves • Lines Pumps Hydraulic pumps are shown by solid arrow heads. Pneumatic compressors are represented by hollow arrow heads. Reservoirs Reservoirs […]

Engineering Drawings (Quick overview)

Engineering drawing defines requirements for product geometry and manufacturing information. Orthographic Projection – Multi view drawings showing how the object looks from front, right, left, top, bottom and back positioned according to First Angle & Third Angle projection. 1st Angle: Object –> Image  (ISO standard – European) 3rd Angle: Image –> Object  (ANSI – USA) […]

Non-Destructive Testing

Testing that doesn’t destroy the test object or specimen. Widely used on aircraft, engine, frame, pipelines, concrete structures, pressure vessels, wire ropes, castings, forgings, welds and railways. Techniques used commonly for Non-Destructive Testing: 1. Visual Testing Visual checks to know about likely cracks and its orientation in welds and material, surface porosity, weld penetration and […]

Product Printing

Printing of graphics on 3D objects does take into perspective a lot of traditional methods with newer technologies and make accurate prints on walnut seem easy. Screen printing is arguably the most versatile of all printing processes. It can be used to print on a wide variety of substrates, including paper, paperboard, plastics, glass, metals, […]

Rapid Prototyping

Rapid Prototyping is the automatic construction of physical objects using additive manufacturing technology. With its advent in late 1980s and current capabilities in producing production quality parts within quick time, the technology is a testimonial in itself. Also a mentor for rapid manufacturing, it has definitely taken product development a whole notch higher. Based on […]
