Deburring (fr: Ébavurage): The process of removing with a deburring tool the raised edges (also called – metal burr) or a piece of unwanted metal remaining attached to a metal workpiece after a modification process.
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 (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) (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.
