Traditional metal processing methods

※The traditional method is simply understood as using objects with greater hardness than the material to cut/engrave on the surface of the material. These include the following methods:

+ Milling: is a fairly popular processing method and accounts for 20% of the total number of metal processing tools.

+ Turning: is the most common cutting and machining method in factories today.

+ Drilling – reaming – reaming – tapping

・Drilling: is a method of creating holes from solid workpieces and is quite commonly used because drilling equipment is easy to use and easy to move.
・Boring: is used after drilling or turning.
・Boring is an extended machining method of machines such as drilling, turning, milling, boring, etc.
・Taping is known as a thread processing method, often used to process standard hole threads.
・Broaching is used  to machine round holes, shaped holes, key holes or spiral grooves or flat surfaces…..
・Grinding: includes types such as inside/outside circular grinding, center/centerless grinding, flat grinding, curved grinding…
・Final processing: Grinding, grinding, polishing,…
・Machining without blanks: rolling, pressing….

※To process metal using modern methods, it is divided into 4 groups of methods as follows:

+ Mechanical processing method:

This method only applies to materials that are difficult to process using traditional processing methods such as glass, ceramic, organic materials or composite… These materials are suitable for mechanical processing because they do not conduct electricity and are easily destroyed by fire, charring, and cracking when processed with high heat. With this method, it can also act as a mini fabric cutting machine.

Mechanical processing includes: abrasive jet machining, abrasive flow machining, water jet machining, ultrasonic machining, etc.

+ Electrochemical processing method

Normally, the electrochemical method will cause less tool corrosion when machining complex parts while walking. The majority of materials that are difficult to use with traditional methods will use this method. Among them, we must mention the methods: electrochemical machining, electrochemical pulse grinding, cavitation with electrolyte flow, shaped tube electrolysis…

+ Methodology:

When using the chemical method, it is only used to process cheap materials such as springs, electric motor leaves, radio-shaped tube surfaces, etc. The removed materials will not have chemical reactions because there is no force acting on the details. Therefore, the details will not be deformed or destroyed during the processing process. More specifically, this method has low initial investment costs. Including methods: photochemical processing, chemical milling…

+ Thermoelectric method:

In general, in modern industries, machining using the thermoelectric method is quite commonly used. Because they can be processed on all materials of varying difficulty. On the other hand, it does not affect the materials when working. Including processing methods such as: electric pulse, electric pulse wire cutting, electric pulse grinding, electronic current machining, plasma machining, laser cutting technology…

Currently, laser engraving machines are at the forefront of machining equipment in many industries today.

However, if your financial conditions are limited, you can also choose a mini laser engraving machine that can also meet your needs because it only has a limited number of sizes that are too large compared to this type. this machine.

So above we have helped you synthesize traditional and modern metal processing methods. To choose the most suitable processing method, you should balance usage needs and operating costs.
