Turning & Milling
- Turning and milling are two mutual machining processes that remove physical products, from a workpiece with the assistance of a cutting tool. While similar, though, they use different methods to achieve this goal. Turning forces, the workpiece to rotate, whereas milling forces the cutting tool to rotate. With different mechanism, they each offer unique advantages when used in the manufacturing industry.
Fabrication of hoppers, frameworks and conveyors
- The property of particles of bulk materials to wear away the surface they come in contact with when in motion is called abrasively. The abrasiveness of the material affects the wear of belt and other components of conveyor / material handling equipment (like hoppers, chutes, skirtboards, buckets, chain links, etc.) coming in contact with the material. At loading point, the incoming material’s velocity is different than the belt velocity. Material takes some time to acquire belt velocity resulting in momentary sliding of the material on belt and causes belt wear. Due to this, for lesser wear, the conveyor handling more abrasive material should have lesser belt speed whereas less abrasive material can be conveyed at higher speed. The agitated condition of material on a belt also causes wear on the belt surface continuously from loading point to discharge point.
- With all forks and attachments, the correct selection is crucial. All factors such as type of product, weight, application, dimensions, size of forklift, the position of load (Load Centre), etc have to be considered when fitting the correct forks or attachment. The forks or attachments are on the ‘business end’ of the forklift, and therefore play a major role in safety. If you have any doubt on what is best for, please don’t hesitate to contact us at TC Eng & fab.
- As pressurized fluid is pumped into the cylinder it exerts a pressure on the bore, which pushes or pulls the rod. The rod is the most worked component and is exposed to high stresses, meaning it must be hardened and resilient to outside environments. This set up forms an impressively strong linear actuator that is powered directly through changes in pressure to and from the cylinder. They are commonly used in heavy lifting equipment, heavy machinery, presses, trailers, railroad equipment, material handling tools, agriculture, and many more applications that require no-spark, high output power.
