A substance composed of two or more metals or of a metal and a none metal intimately united usually by being fused together and dissolving in each other when molten
Method of fabrication in which a warm plastic parison (hollow tube) is placed between the two halves of a mold cavity and forced to assume the shape of that mold cavity by use of air pressure.
description of a material which is neither ductile nor malleable and will fail suddenly without warning
a method of sculpture that involves pouring melted down metal or other liquid substance into a mold to harden
proccess of working metal into shape below the melting tempertureby drawing, extruding, rolling or bending
a state of deterioration in metals caused by oxidation or chemical action
pattern or shape in which metal is formed
property of materials that will undergo plastic deformation or elongation of more than 5% before fracture
metal compressed and forced through a die to produce a uniform cross section
Iron based alloy
controlled application of force to shape hot material
controlled heating and cooling of steel to alter its strenght toughness or machinability
The process of forcing a heated soft plastic into a mold cavity where it is cooled and hardens.
machine for turning operation to create cylindrical parts
of or relating to a magnet or to magnetism; magnetic material is attracted to magnets
the porperty of a material which enables it to endergo considerable plastic deformation under compression before fracture
moves the workpiece radially against the rotating cutter, which cuts on its sides as well as its tip. proccess such as slotting, facing, pocketing occurs
designation of any chemical compound containing carbon with the exception of some of the simple compounds of carbon, such as carbon dioxide, which are frequently classified as inorganic
parts are produced directly from sorfware applications. mostly resin, can be used to create a mold
the ratio of potential difference across and electrical component to the current passing through it. It is thus a measure of the component's opposition to the flow of electrical charge
The Rockwell Superficial hardness test method consists of indenting the test material with a diamond cone or hardened steel ball indenter. The Rockwell hardness number is a comparative indicator of a material's hardness.
a process in which a heated or cold metal is passed between rollers. squeezing it into various shapes and thickness. Some applications include rods, bars, sheet, plates and foils
having the property of softening or fusing when heated and of hardening and becoming rigid again when cooled repeatedly
A material, such as an epoxy or polyester resin, which has the property of undergoing a chemical reaction by the action of heat, catalyst, ultraviolet light, etc., to become a relatively insoluble and infusible substance. They develop a well-bonded three-dimensional structure upon curing. Once hardened or cross-linked, they will decompose rather than melt.
Term applied to sound frequencies above 20,000 hertz, the normal upper limit for human hearing.
