Types of metalworking processes
There are many ways to work with metal. Because of the wide range of metalworking possibilities, you can also realise a lot with metalworking. You can divide the metalworking processes into two groups, namely the machining metalworking:
- The basic material is brought into the right shape by machining. This group includes: drilling, turning, milling, grinding, sawing, threading, engraving, tapping, filing, boring, broaching, drawing milling, honing, lapping, planing and stabbing. The other group is
- Non-machining metalworking. Within this group, a variety of metalworking processes are present. These can be sheet-metal working techniques such as rolling, setting and cutting. But also welding, forging, casting, cutting, deep drawing, pressing, punching, laser processing, soldering, spark-eroding, blotting, bending and 3D printing are part of non-machining metal processing.
When working with metal, it is important to use the right tools. There are a lot of tools that are used when working with metal.
Commonly used tools are: a scriber, a centre point, a pair of compasses, sheet metal shears, a cutter, a bench hammer, an anvil and so on. When working with metal, always check whether the tools are still in good condition. Tools in bad condition increase the risk of accidents.
