Material phase
Solid phase Liquid phase Mixed phase e.g. machining, bending e.g. casting, injection molding e.g. composites molding

Vapor phase -

e.g. chemical vapor deposition

chemical milling. etc. waterjet.1. Subtractive Processes Processes    Machining: Turning. boring. chemical mechanical polishing… . milling. grinding Non-traditional machining: EDM. Micro-electronics processes: Primarily etching type processes using either masks or beam.

Subtractive Processes  machining What is so great about machining? To first approx mat’l properties are independent of process Very flexible Good dimensional control (possible) Good surface finish (possible)    .

Downside? Serial process .long times Large quantities of waste Refixturing for large forces .

How does machining fight back? Horizontal milling Forming tools High speed machining .

fully automated  Advanced Composites Processes  Combination of additive and net shape processes  Microelectronics Processes  Physical and chemical vapor deposition processes and coating methods  Joining & Assembly  Broad category includes welding. slow rates.2. Additive Processes Processes  Rapid Prototyping  Very flexible to part shape. adhesives. usually limited in material choices. and mechanical assembly .

Pros and Cons +Tailored materials + Structural complexity + High degree of automation .Hard to recycle .High waste for some . sequential .Slow.

Parallel processes require tooling. larger fixed costs. but short cycle time .Unit cost: C/N =F/N + V Serial processes take longer. larger variable costs Specialty mat’l add to variable costs QuickTime™ and a decompressor are needed to see this picture.
