DIE (IN METAL MANUFACTURING)
Die (in metal manufacturing) (fr: Matrice – dans la fabrication de métaux): A specialized manufacturing tool used to cut or shape metal materials mostly using a press. Dies are usually customized to the item they are used to create. Different dies are used in different metal manufacturing processes like: blanking, broaching, bulging, curling, coining, drawing, roll forming and many more.
Die Casting (fr: Moulage sous pression): The process of casting a non-ferrous metal (usually aluminium or zinc) into a closed steel die either by pouring (gravity die casting) or injection under pressure (pressure die casting). Die casting is more accurate and faster than sand casting.
DOM STEEL TUBE
DOM steel tube (fr: Tube en acier DOM): A welded round steel tube with the internal weld seam removed thus creating a smooth internal surface. DOM Round Steel Tube has been drawn over a mandrel to form a tube with more exact dimensional accuracy and resistance, and a very smooth inside and outside finishes. DOM Round Steel Tube is ideal for stressful applications that require a higher quality, increased mechanical properties, strength, uniformity and soundness.
DRILLING (OF METAL)
Drilling (of metal) (fr: Forage – des métaux): The process of cutting holes into metal by using a rotary cutting tool – the drill bit. Unlike punching metal, drilling cuts the material while spinning and thus, the waste ejects up through the hollow shaft and exits through the top.
