used Processes for Production of Metal Parts
Refining and alloying of the metal
– All metals generally begin with ore in its natural state
– Tensile strength, Hardness, Impact resistance, Malleability,
Fatigue resistance, Corrosion resistance
– Alloys are combination of two or more metals to obtain
– Sand casting, die casting, gravity casting, centrifugal
