... based on how the grains are applied to the workpiece ... within a matrix, and their combined shape determines the geometry of the finished workpiece ... into the part, its shape is transferred onto the workpiece ...
Tailstock
... is usually used to apply support to the longitudinal rotary axis of a workpiece being machined ... and inserted against the sides of a hole in the center of the workpiece ... A tailstock is particularly useful when the workpiece is relatively long and slender ...
Shear Forming - Flow Forming
... The roller deforms the workpiece, forcing it against the mandrel, both axially lengthening and radially thinning it ... Flow forming subjects the workpiece to a great deal of friction and deformation ... These two factors may heat the workpiece to several hundred degrees if proper cooling fluid is not utilized ...
Centerless Grinding - Process
... In centerless grinding, the workpiece is held between two grinding wheels, rotating in the same direction at different speeds, and a workholding platform ... such that the force applied to the workpiece is directed downward, against the workholding platform ... action by having a higher linear speed than the workpiece at the point of contact ...
Shearing (manufacturing) - Principle
... A punch (or moving blade) is used to push the workpiece against the die (or fixed blade), which is fixed ... Two distinct sections can be seen on a sheared workpiece, the first part being plastic deformation and the second being fractured ... point and progress to the next weakest point until the entire workpiece has been sheared this is what causes the rough edge ...
