Working principle of slow wire processing

 Slow wire walking, also called low-speed wire walking, is a kind of CNC machining machine tool that uses continuously moving fine metal wire as an electrode to pulse spark discharge on the workpiece to generate a high temperature of over 6000 degrees, ablate metal and cut into a workpiece. The principle of wire processing is the phenomenon that there is a gap between the wire electrode and the workpiece, and the metal is removed by continuous discharge. Since the slow-moving wire cutting machine adopts the method of wire electrode continuous feeding, that is, the wire electrode is processed during the movement, so even if the wire electrode is worn out, it can be continuously supplemented, so it can improve the machining accuracy of the parts and slow the wire. The surface roughness of the workpiece processed by the cutting machine can usually reach Ra=0.8μm and above, and the roundness error, linear error and dimensional error of the slow-moving wire cutting machine are much better t

How Do Cnc Swiss Machines Work

How Do Cnc Swiss Machines Work Save 0 What Is Swiss Machine –The full name of the walking CNC lathe, it can also be called the spindle box mobile CNC automatic lathe, the economical turning and milling compound machine tool or the slitting lathe. It belongs to precision machining equipment, which can complete compound  machining such as turning, milling, drilling, boring, tapping, and engraving at one time. It is mainly used for batch  machining of precision hardware and special-shaped shafts. This machine tool first originated in Germany and Switzerland. In the early stage, it was mainly used for precision machining of military equipment. With the continuous development and expansion of industrialization, due to the urgent needs of the market, it was gradually applied to the  machining of civilian products; the development of similar machine tools in Japan and South Korea Earlier than China, it was mainly used in the military industry in the early days. After the war, it was gradually

Spring Design Attention And Roll Forming Method

Spring Design Attention And Roll Forming Method The coiling characteristics and methods of springs are divided into cold coiling method and hot coiling method. Cold winding method: When the diameter of the spring wire is less than 8mm, the cold winding method is adopted. High-quality carbon spring steel wire is usually first cold drawn and then heat treated. After winding, it is generally not quenched, but only tempered at low temperature to eliminate the internal stress during winding. Hot-rolling method: Springs with larger diameter (>8mm) spring wire should use hot-rolling method. Hot rolled springs must be quenched and tempered at medium temperature. The Design Process Of Various Springs ·          Installation space: When designing a  compression spring , it is necessary to have a clear understanding of the space required for the installation of the spring, in order to effectively grasp the basic manufacturing conditions of the compression spring, including the outer diam

Analysis of Stamping Molding Material Application-SUS304, SUS301, Aluminum, Carbon Tool Steel, Chita

1. SUS304 (stainless steel)

The most used stainless steels are more resistant to corrosion and heat than Cr steels because they contain Ni, and have low temperature strength, so they have very good mechanical properties. be. Very large work hardening, heat treatment is uncured, non-magnetic, excellent strength, no more flexible, it is often used between 0.4T and 1.0T thickness. Today, it is widely used in Notebooks to meet the structural strength needs of brackets. You need to specify the number of stages to meet the design requirements. It is generally recommended to take 3/4 H. If you need to draw, it’s best to take 1/2H when using it with an LCD bracket.

Reference price: 98NT $ / Kg –0.5T, 130NT $ / Kg –0.3T, 195NT $ / Kg –0.2T.

2. SUS301 (stainless steel)

The composition of Cr (chromium) is lower than that of SUS304, and the corrosion resistance is inferior, but cold working can obtain extremely high wire drawability and hardness, and its characteristics are widely used. Due to its good elasticity, it is often widely used in EMI for notebooks to make elastic contact parts, but the thickness is usually between 0.4T and 0.07T.
To meet the design requirements (elasticity, strength, etc.), it is necessary to specify the number of stages. Also note that the 301 material has metal crystal orientation. If the molding is not paid attention, the higher the altitude, the harder and the more brittle, the more likely it is to crack the corners and sidewalls.
Reference price: 142NT $ / Kg –0.5T, 183NT $ / Kg –0.3T, 180NT $ / Kg –0.2T. 285NT $ / Kg –0.1T.


Material performance

  • SUS 301: Suitable for stretchy applications, high carbon content and high hardness. Poor ductility and difficult to stretch.
  • SUS 304: Not suitable for stretchy applications, low carbon content, low hardness (soft).
  • SUS430: Hardness is unstable because a lot of impurities (impurities) are contained in the material.


  • 1. When the hardness is close like (SUS 301 3/4 H and SUS 304 H), the hardness is the same, but elastic fatigue is likely to occur in the elastic product.
  • 2. The thickness of the material affects the hardness tolerance (the thicker the tolerance, the larger the tolerance).
  • 3. AL1050 (aluminum alloy):The materials include pure aluminum, light materials, good heat dissipation, materials that are difficult to process, relatively low strength, excellent moldability, weldability and corrosion resistance.

Therefore, it is currently used in notebooks for heat sinks.

  • Reference price: 92-95NT $ / Kg –0.5T.
  • Model Si Fe Cu Mn Mg Cr Zn Ti Al
  • AL1100 (Si + Fe) ≤ 0.95 0.05-0.2 0.05 — 0.10 — 99.0 minutes


4. AL5052 (aluminum alloy)

Good heat dissipation, hard material, strong strength, good moldability, weldability and corrosion resistance, but the material is not easy to process.
Today, it is widely used in laptops instead of tinplate. It is lighter and has better heat dissipation than regular aluminum materials.

It can be applied to the design shield plate, I / O bracket, module drives the bracket.

5. Carbon tool steel SK3, SK5, SK7

A high carbon steel having a carbon content of 0.6% or more has a quenching hardness of SK3, SK5 of HrC50 to 60, and SK7 of rC50 to 55, has good wear resistance, and is an inexpensive tool steel. It is used for sliding parts. Guide pins, guide bushes, ejector pins, resale, etc. that require hardness and wear resistance. It has better strength, rigidity and recovery rate after heat treatment than SUS 301 H. As a result, it is currently used in notebooks for structural parts that need to be reinforced (brackets, etc.) and parts that require high elasticity (clips, debris, spring pins, etc.). However, its drawback is the area after the heat treatment warpage is easily corrected and becomes hard and brittle, and care should be taken during use.
