Welding Pictures

Welding is a fabrication or sculptural process that joins materials, usually metals or thermoplastics, by causing coalescence. This is often done by melting the workpieces and adding a filler material to form a pool of molten material (the weld pool) that cools to become a strong joint, with pressure sometimes used in conjunction with heat, or by itself, to produce the weld.  

Arc welding

Arc welding and oxyfuel welding were among the first processes to develop late in the century, and electric resistance welding followed soon after. Following the wars, several modern welding techniques were developed, including manual methods like shielded metal arc welding, now one of the most popular welding methods, as well as semi-automatic and automatic processes such as gas metal arc welding, submerged arc welding, flux-cored arc welding and electroslag welding.

What is Ultrasonic Welding ?

Ultrasonic Welding

Ultrasonic Welding is the fastest and most cost effective method used today to join and assemble plastic parts and non-ferrous metals. Ultrasonic welding is cost effective and a green technology. Ultrasonic welding eliminates the need to use fasteners, glues and/or solvents.

Ultrasonic Welding Machine

Ultrasonic Welding can be used to join all rigid thermoplastics, synthetic fabrics and films. Ultrasonic welding uses an acoustic tool called an ultrasonic horn made to match your parts design. Ultrasonic Welding is converted to heat through friction that melts the plastic or metal.

Anti Corrosion

What is Rust Inhibitor ?

Anti-corrosion refers to the protection of metal surfaces from corroding in aggressive (corroding) environments. When the metal material put into the corrosive environment, itself would have chemical reaction with the air. It brings corrosive phenomenon on its surface. For example, after putting the iron into the corrosive atmosphere for a long time, the iron starts rusting due to oxygen interacting with water on the iron’s surface.

Therefore, when normal electronic equipments which aren’t doing any preventive measurement, they may become rusted inside and outside of the metal housings for long time exposure. In order to prevent the corrosion, there are some ways for electronic equipments especially for marine application. For those electronic equipments where installed in salty and misty cabins are especially needed anti-corrosion measurements.

Magnetic ink

What is Magnetic Ink Character Recognition ?

Magnetic ink is very useful because it is readable both by humans and by specialized equipment. It is one of the components that makes it possible to process personal checks securely, quickly and accurately.

Magnetic Ink

Magnetic Ink Character Recognition, or MICR, is a character recognition technology used primarily by the banking industry to facilitate the processing of cheques and makes up the routing number and account number at the bottom of a check. The technology allows computers to read information (such as account numbers) off printed documents. Unlike barcodes or similar technologies, however, MICR codes can be easily read by humans.
