involves producing custom work, such as a one-off product for a specific customer or a small batch
one off production
is a technique used in manufacturing, in which the object in question is created stage by stage over a series of workstations, and different batches of products are made.
is the manufacture of large quantities of standardized products, frequently utilizing assembly line technology. Mass production refers to the process of creating large numbers of similar products efficiently.
the materials, either dry bulk or fluids that are being processed are continuously in motion, undergoing chemical reactions or subject to mechanical or heat treatment. Continuous processing is contrasted with batch production.
A colourless, odourless, nontoxic, transparent, thermoplastic, water-insoluble resin used as an adhesive in certain paints and as an intermediate in the synthesis of polyvinyl acetyl and polyvinyl alcohol. Expand.
which joins plastics such as Perspex together permanently. The glue is applied to the surfaces to be glued and they are pressed together. They should be clamped for 24 hours and this gives a permanent joint.
Polystyrene (poly) cement is only suitable for rigid polystyrene plastic which is the type used for injection moulded kits. It works by dissolving the surface of the plastic which then re-hardens.
For joining metals and plastics. It is waterproof but must be mixed up immediately before use.
is a device that fuses two pieces of plastic together with paper in between. The primary reason for laminating things is to preserve the quality of the material being laminated. It provides a protective barrier against moisture, stains and fingerprints
are forms of protective eyewear that usually enclose or protect the area surrounding the eye in order to prevent particulates, water or chemicals from striking the eyes. They are used in chemistry laboratories and in woodworking.
is a fixed style of drill that may be mounted on a stand or bolted to the floor or workbench. Portable models with a magnetic base grip the steel work pieces they drill.
is an object used in engineering and technical drawing, with the aim of providing a straightedge at right angle other particular planar to baseline 45 degree also has 90.
the shaping of rubber or plastic articles by injecting heated material into a mould
is a simplified version of thermoforming, where a sheet of plastic is heated to a forming temperature, stretched onto a single-surface mould, and forced against the mould by a vacuum. This process can be used to form plastic into permanent objects such as turnpike signs and protective covers.
is when you force ink or metal on to (a surface) through a prepared screen of fine material so as to create a picture or pattern.
is the process of using a die to shear webs of low-strength materials, such as rubber, fibre, foil, cloth, paper, corrugated fibreboard, paperboard, plastics, pressure-sensitive adhesive tapes, foam and sheet metal.
is a technology that uses a laser to cut materials, and is typically used for industrial manufacturing applications, but is also starting to be used by schools, small businesses, and hobbyists. Laser cutting works by directing the output of a high-power laser most commonly through optics.
is a type of computer controlled machine. Small vinyl cutters look like computer printers. The computer controls the movement of a sharp blade. This blade is used to cut out shapes and letters from sheets of thin self-adhesive plastic (vinyl).
is a commonly used printing technique in which the inked image is transferred from a plate to a rubber blanket, then to the printing surface.
which involves engraving the image onto an image carrier.
a rotary relief printing method using rubber or plastic plates and fluid inks or dyes for printing on fabrics and impervious materials such as plastics, as well as on paper.
printing from a hard raised image under pressure, using viscous ink
a material consisting of thin, strong crystalline filaments of carbon, used as a strengthening material, especially in resins and ceramics.
an organism or inorganic object or material which takes various forms.
re display devices that mimic the appearance of ordinary ink on paper.
ID system that uses small radio frequency identification devices for identification and tracking purposes.
as for a notebook or booklet, in which the pages are fastened together by a spiral of wire or plastic that coils through a series of holes punched along one side of each page and the front and back covers.
method uses wire staples to secure folded sheets of paper.
a form of bookbinding in which the leaves are bound by gluing rather than sewing.
(of a book) bound with a stiff cover, usually of cloth or leather; casebound. Compare paperback.
a kind of expanded polystyrene used especially for making food containers.
is a form of 3D printing technology used for creating models, prototypes, patterns, and production of parts in a layer by layer fashion using photopolymerization
A product must pass ....................... to be sold in this country. These are safety standards If a product passes the tests it can display the 'kite' mark
To be sold in Europe a product must pass ........................... Safe products can display the CE mark
is a manufacturing process by which hollow plastic parts are formed: It is also used for forming glass bottles.
is a group of techniques used to quickly fabricate a scale model of a physical part or assembly using three-dimensional computer aided design (CAD) data.
the production of printed matter by means of a printer linked to a desktop computer, with special software. The system enables reports, advertising matter, etc., to be produced cheaply with a layout and print quality similar to that of typeset books
