Gas Tungsten Arc Welding (GTAW), also known as TIG (Tungsten Inert Gas) welding, the filler metal is supplied from a filler wire as shown in the figure below. ..
In Water Jet Machining (WJM) process, water jets alone (without abrasives) can be used for cutting. Thin jets of high pressure and high velocity have been ..
Gas Metal Arc Welding (GMAW) is also called metal inert gas (MIG) welding. In the gas metal arc welding process, the weld area is shielded by an inert atmosphere ..
Plasma Arc Welding (PAW) is an arc welding process; an entire plasma arc is produced and directed towards the weld area. The arc is stable and reaches temperatures ..
The die casting process is a manufacturing process for producing accurately dimensioned, sharply defined, smooth or textured surface metal parts. It is accomplished ..
A simple pendulum consists of a concentrated mass known as the ‘bob,’ which is free to swing from side to side at the end of a light cord or rod. When ..
