Lapping and honing are super-fining processes performed to attain tight tolerance. Read full to understand the basic difference between the two applications.
The basic principle behind all welding processes is to produce a molten pool in the locality of the joint being formed and to add a filler material (if required) as the materials from either side of the joint run into one another forming a re-enforced joint.
A welding generator can create power in addition to a current for use in welding equipment. What makes welder generators valuable, and what factors determine their value?
UHT (Ultra High Temperature) processing of milk in an aseptic plant can be broken down into specific unit operations. I'll review the physical processes as a general overview - with a little math.
The extrusion process applies to a variety of processes that involve confining a material in a container and applying a force to push the material through an orifice to produce a required shape.
