Uses Of CNC Milling Machine

We are all aware of the devastating effects wars can have, however technology would not have advanced so greatly (or at least not this fast) had it not been for groundbreaking designs during such difficult times. From rotary filling to milling, a lot of persistence and shrewdness was required to invent something that would be better than enemy machinery and outsmart them. It was during WWII that CNC machining was brought to use.

CNC Milling

CNC, which stands for Computerised Numerical Control, is the process of creating a design through CAD (Computer Aided Design) software that a computer converts into numbers. The first CNC machining was used for more precision with creating aircraft. Of course this type of production has gone a long way since the prototype of CNC. The base of CNC milling is comprised of tools required for cutting and shaping metal and other solid materials. While in the past the system of the machine had to be operated manually, a lot of time is saved nowadays thanks to the automated mechanism. Industrial production has undergone considerable changes.

Because of the countless advantages, all sorts of industries make use of this computerised system and there are many CNC milling machines to choose. From aerospace, agriculture, automotive, electronics and military to medical industry, there certainly is not a branch that has not benefited from CNC milling. The specialised design makes it perfect for accurate shaping of aircraft structures, plane and car engine parts, transmission housing, many kinds of TV and mobile phone parts, as well as firearm components. It is especially of crucial importance for medicine because many surgeries that were previously deemed impossible or risky have been simplified significantly. A large number of surgical tools are produced by CNC machines, and most of the orthopaedic implants such as prosthetic knees and hips, even including spinal implants.

Along with fabrication of complex products, these machines can find their way in homes in a like manner since they are also fit for short-run production and any ideas for when your creativity strikes. They differ from the other machines in their size as they are designed compactly to adequately not take up much space and can easily be your next desk accessory. From home use to large scale industry manufacturing, CNC milling probes into endless aspects. Though prices of these machines may be slightly higher than manually operated ones, it is an investment worth considering as it will pay off eventually. Recently there are many new models emerging which results in a drop of the price range.


How To Prepare For Residential Relocation

There is no bigger pleasure than moving into a new home; the decorating, the new furniture elements, the new colour schemes and practically everything that goes along with this exciting adventure. I don’t know whether it is because I’m a woman and into interior design way more than I should be, but when I had to move from my single-girl apartment on the highest floor in my building, which by the way has a very small elevator, into a new large house with my family, I was literally obsessed with the move. I had everything organized to the tiniest detail, so when I heard from my dear friend who also went through a residential relocation of her own, that she was fatigued after it, I was stunned! Did that process go smoothly only for me?! Continue reading

Facts To Master on Socket Testers

When you talk about socket testers you are talking about plug-in devices designed to give you a quick and easy indication of what kind of condition the outlet is in. Although most devices will tell you the basic information you want, no device can tell you absolutely everything you need to know about the socket. No socket tester is designed to give you full assurance that a socket outlet is safe to use, but it is still safer than not using one.

It is also important to know how to use socket testers as many people carry them around in their tool bags but don’t understand how to properly use them. A lot of people also don’t know the difference between a simple socket tester, an advanced socket tester and a professional socket tester. Below we’ll go over the differences between each three so you know which one is the best fit for your needs. Continue reading

Digital Humidity Meter – What You Need To Know About Measuring Humidity

What exactly is humidity? Humidity is the amount of water vapour or moisture that is present in the air around you. When you talk about relative humidity, you are referring to the ratio of moisture in a given volume of air at a certain temperature. This also means the most vapour that particular amount of air can hold converted into a percentage. For example, if the reading states 40% relative humidity it means that there is 40% saturation present in that current air. This can easily be measured with a digital humidity meter.

What You Need To Know About Whey Isolate Protein Powder

Whey protein is a dietary supplement either isolated from whey (the by-product of cheese) or separated from the casein. If taken regularly and properly, whey protein can make the difference in your bodybuilding – it is critical for muscle growth, plus it can significantly boost your energy. But this does not apply to all whey protein products; they are not created equal, so how do you choose the right one?! Will the taste be the deciding factor, or maybe the brand name or maybe you’ll go with what’s on sale? None of these. You should base your decision on your goals and protein content.

Whey protein comes in three forms: whey isolate protein (WPI), whey protein concentrate (WPC) and whey protein hydrolysate (WPH). The main difference between the three is their protein content – WPC contains around 55-89% proteins, WPI contains 95% of proteins while WPH has the highest concentration of proteins but is not favoured by athletes and bodybuilders because of its strong smell and bad taste.

What Does Portable Appliance Testing Involve?

One would expect that just like in many other areas, the US would be a leader in electrical safety, but it seems like that’s not the case when it comes to setting the regulations and procedures for this area.

What Gear Do I Need To Play Roller Derby

I’ve always loved my roller skates; there’s something in the way how these small wheels make you fly on the streets without having to move your feet that much. As a little girl, a few falls now and then gave me a number of bruises, but I learned how to skate like a pro, so it was definitely worth it. Today, I still skate during weekends in the park, and the thing that makes me most happy is that there are a lot of older people ( like in their 40’s and 50’s even) that skate! And why wouldn’t they, skating is such a great exercise for balance and endurance, plus it is an excellent stress reliever. Continue reading
