Machining - Swiss Screw (3599-SW)
Machining - Swiss Screw
Screw Machining (aka swiss style or swiss type machining) is a production method designed to be extremely proficient for the manufacturing of small parts and also for long, slender parts which would otherwise deflect or vibrate when turning on a lathe. This process is also very fast and extremely ...

Heating Elements & Annealing Components (3567-HT)
Heating Elements & Annealing Components - Annealing, in metallurgy and materials science, is a heat treatment that alters the physical and sometimes chemical properties of a material to increase its ductility and reduce its hardness, making it more workable. It involves heating a material to above its recrystallization temperature, maintaining a suitable temperature, and then cooling. In annealing, atoms migrate in the crystal lattice and the number of dislocations decreases, leading to the change in ductility and hardness. In the cases of copper, steel, silver, and brass, this process is performed by heating the material (generally until glowing) for a while and then slowly letting it cool to room temperature in still air. Copper, silver and brass can be cooled slowly in air, or quickly by quenching in water, unlike ferrous metals, such as steel, which must be cooled slowly to anneal. In this fashion, the metal is softened and prepared for further work - such as shaping, stamping, or forming. Professional Plastics supplies a variety of high-temperature insulating materials used in heating and annealing equipment.
