Tube Laser Cutting

Tube Laser Cutting Tube Laser cutting is a relatively new manufacturing process when compared with other manufacturing processes which have their origins from the industrial revolution. Laser Cutting uses a focused light and usually an assist gas to burn material (typically metal) into a shape which can then undergo further manufacturing processes such as pressing or countersinking. Tube laser cutting works on a multi-axis basis where the tube is rotated by a large chuck and the laser then cuts the necessary holes, apertures and profiles. This is a highly accurate method of cutting metal tube...

PLC Automated Systems to Home in Aspen

PLC Automated Systems to Home in Aspen   At the top of Red Mountain in Aspen Colorado sits a multimillion dollar custom home featuring the best in high end finishes and modern technology extras. Jobsite was contracted to create innovative solutions for two major engineering and manufacturing projects; a custom sliding pool cover and a custom stairwell access into a private observatory. Both projects required Jobsite’s top engineering ideas to create large scale PLC automated systems that not only had to be robust, but also capable of being hidden among the homes high-end...

CNC Turning and CNC Milling

Computer Numerical Control (or CNC) refers to the automation of machine tools, such as lathes, drill presses and screw machines, which are used in the ‘machining’ process in which such tools cut metal components to desired dimensions. These machine tools are operated by abstractly programmed controls which are encoded on a storage medium, the most commonly used examples in modern CNC production processes being the highly automated CAD (Computer Aided Design) and CAM (Computer Aided Manufacture). Both of these processes play vital roles in CNC turning and CNC milling. CNC...

Difference between Mig and Tig Welding

Difference between Mig and Tig Welding

What’s the difference between Mig and Tig Welding? The major difference between Mig and Tig welding is that one process uses a continuously feeding wire (MIG) and the other you use long welding rods and slowly feed them into the weld puddle (TIG). MIG and TIG welding both use an electric arc to make the weld. MIG welding is a very simple and easy process to learn compared to learning how to TIG weld. The technical names for these are metal inert gas (MIG), and tungsten inert gas (TIG). A MIG welder works by using a continuously feeding spool of welding wire that burns, melts and fuses...

Precision Machining – EDM Principles

What is Precision Machining with Wire EDM? How does it work? ELECTRICAL DISCHARGE MACHINING (EDM) is a precision machining metal technology able cut steel with amazing accuracy. This is accomplished with a system comprising two major components: a machine tool and a power supply. The machine tool holds a shaped electrode which advances into the workpiece and produces a shaped cavity. The power supply produces a high frequency series of electrical spark discharges between the electrode and the workpiece, which removes metal from the workpiece by thermal erosion or vaporization. The basic...
