Aluminum Steps Up

Aluminum Steps Up | Industrial subcontracting | Scoop.it

Aluminum is the metallurgical bartender’s all-purpose cocktail ingredient. Combine it in a melting furnace with any of an array of elements and you can change or enhance it dramatically. Make it softer, make it harder. Make it rigid, make it flexible. Make it more weldable, more crack-resistant, lighter, corrosion-proof or any number of other characteristics that manufacturers find desirable.

Bright Ideas in Custom Lighting

Bright Ideas in Custom Lighting | Industrial subcontracting | Scoop.it

LEDs—Light Emitting Diodes—are revolutionizing automotive lighting at the OEM level, and rapidly advancing into the hot rod and restoration aftermarket. And we don’t use the word revolutionizing lightly.

In early October, shortly after we began research for this article, the Nobel Committee for Physics announced that the 2014 Prize for Physics would be shared by Shuji Nakamura, Hiroshi Amano, and Isamu Akasaki—co-inventors of the blue LED. Red and green LEDs had been available for decades. Blue completed the spectrum, making white LED light possible. And white LED lighting is that significant.

Dressed for Success: This Aircraft Wears High-Tech Clothes

Dressed for Success: This Aircraft Wears High-Tech Clothes | Industrial subcontracting | Scoop.it

The new method used by workers at Hamble partially skips the pressure cooker step and allows workers to speed up production. (It’s actually called out-of-autoclave.) They use vacuum to suck out air bubbles between the layers before they toughen the part up with heat.

 The A350 XWB is the first civilian plane with parts made by this new method. John Savage, a principal engineer at GE Aviation, called it  “a major technological breakthrough” . He said that it would help GE meet “the demand for a rapid ramp up and high volume production.”

Complex machining undertaken by university

Complex machining undertaken by university | Industrial subcontracting | Scoop.it

Oxford Brookes Racing (OBR) is a dedicated project run by Oxford Brookes University to take young engineers through the challenge of designing and building a single-seat racing car and competing as a team. 

OBR takes part in the international Formula Student competition, which judges the cars on a number of criteria: design, cost, presentation, technical and safety aspects, tilt test, brake and noise test, skid pan, 1km sprint, 75m acceleration, 22km endurance and fuel economy. Since 1999, it has scored more points and returned faster laps than any other UK Formula Student team — and it has been the top UK team five times.

Machining with Industrial Robots

Machining with Industrial Robots | Industrial subcontracting | Scoop.it

Traditionally machining is done by using a milling or a turning machine. The first one is a tool that turns at a given RPM and removes material from a raw part. A milling machine can have from 3 to 6 axes. A turning machine is the opposite, the raw part is turning around an axis and the tool stands still (most of the time) and removes material from the part. There are other subtleties and details but this is basically how it is done.

CNC Machining: Improving Cosmetic Finishes With a Systematic Method

CNC Machining: Improving Cosmetic Finishes With a Systematic Method | Industrial subcontracting | Scoop.it

While most companies generate a reasonably low scrap level, industries that have highly critical cosmetic part requirements need to put in place special processes to make perfect parts. Simply making a good part is not acceptable. The parts must look “great” in all aspects, from the dimensional to the cosmetic appearance.

Cosmetic issues are in all business segments; consumer, automotive, medical and aerospace. For parts that are molded, techniques have been developed to manufacture molds and handle parts after molding.
