When working with metal components and products, the limitations to consider are extremely important to keep costs low and production on schedule. Machining technology and processes are evolving, but we’re not yet at a point where every design can be manufactured with minimal operations. Creating a complex design without understanding the limitations of machining metals could be a major setback to bringing your product to fruition.
This guide will explain what to look for when machining metals, including the:
- Most common machines you’re most likely to come across
- Top four misconceptions you need to understand
- Thirteen specific design considerations to incorporate
