© Learning and Teaching Scotland 2006 Press forming Press forming involves squeezing sheet metal between two matched metal moulds (dies). This gives a very strong shell-like structure. One die is the mirror image of the other, apart from an allowance for the thickness of the material being formed. The machining of these dies is a specialised skill as they are complicated and therefore time-consuming and expensive to produce. Process A blank is cut out to the required size. The blank is placed in a press. The product is formed using immense force. (1 thousand tonnes are required to manipulate 3.5mm thick steel plate.)

© Learning and Teaching Scotland 2006 Sand casting Sand casting in industry A sand cast grate handle Split pattern This is the most frequently used metal casting process. Green foundry sand is a blend of silica grains, clay and water. Oil-bound sand gives good results but is difficult to reconstitute (re-use). The quality of the casting depends on the quality of the pattern, which is normally made of wood. The pattern requires radiused corners, drafted sides and a good surface finish. The sand mould is produced around the pattern, which is removed to leave a cavity. Molten metal is poured into the mould and solidifies. When cold, the mould is broken up to retrieve the casting.
© Learning and Teaching Scotland 2006 Die casting Process A measure of molten metal is poured into the charge chamber. An injection piston then forces the metal into a water-cooled die through a system of sprues and runners. The metal solidifies rapidly and the casting is removed, complete with its sprues and runners. This process is the equivalent of the plastic process of injection moulding, where molten material is forced into a mould (die) to cool and set. The dies used are made of special alloy steel and are very expensive to produce, being made in sections for easy removal of the components. The high operating costs make this process viable for high- volume production or mass production where accuracy of shape, size and surface finish is essential. This pencil sharpener has been die cast. It has ejector pin marks on each corner.
© Learning and Teaching Scotland 2006 Milling This process, which can be computer controlled, uses rotational multi- toothed cutters to shape metals, plastics and composites. Milling machines are robust and powerful. There are two main types – horizontal and vertical, so called because of the milling cutters axis of rotation. Horizontal and vertical milling of vertical flat surfaces – the horizontal machine is using a side-and-face cutter which cuts on its side and on its diameter. This picture shows vertical milling
© Learning and Teaching Scotland 2006 Centre lathe turning Centre lathes are used to make cylindrical components from metals and plastic materials. The process is called turning – never use the term lathing. The principle of turning is straightforward. Work is held firmly and is rotated whilst a single-point cutting tool, located in the tool post, cuts the work using the familiar wedge-cutting action. The shape of the work produced depends upon the path taken by the tool, the two principle shapes being cylindrical and flat, produced by parallel turning and facing. Centre lathes, like the one shown have four main elements: lathe bed – very rigid and usually made from cast iron. The bed keeps the other parts in alignment. headstock – containing the gearbox, controls and the means of holding the work, most commonly a 3-jaw or 4-jaw chuck. tail stock – for location of drills and drill chucks and for supporting long work. saddle – travels along the bed and carries a cross slide upon which is mounted the tool post.
