Everything You Need to Know About the Coordinate Measuring Machine (CMM) Process and How it Improves Manufacturing Reliability featured image
Thursday July 5, 2018

When it comes to manufacturing use-end parts and functional prototypes, it’s extremely important that the physical dimensions and geometric characteristics of the object match that of the 3D model. Even if a measurement is just slightly off, it can jeopardize the entire production process and set you back to square one. That’s why Aajogo offers […]

Everything You Need to Know About Anodizing Aluminum featured image
Friday June 29, 2018

When you’re in need of metal prototypes or parts with superior mechanical properties and specialized aesthetic design, anodizing aluminum is an excellent option. The anodizing process forms a layer of oxide on a metal part, effectively increasing corrosion resistance, and also enhancing visual qualities and keeping the surface from being scratched. Anodizing aluminum is an […]

5 ways 3D Printing is Changing The Automotive Industry featured image
Saturday June 23, 2018

Additive manufacturing, otherwise known as 3D printing, is beginning to make its mark on a wide range of industries, from medical device manufacturing to aerospace. One of the biggest beneficiaries of additive, however, is the automotive industry, in which car manufacturers are using 3D printing to prototype components, create libraries of spare and customized parts […]

How Anodizing Can Improve Your Electronic Products featured image
Wednesday June 20, 2018

Seeing rust on an iron or steel surface can be cause for alarm. Needless to say, if parts of your car start to turn that distinct shade of reddy brown — a transformation that occurs when iron undergoes the process of oxidation — you might be due a trip to the mechanic… if not the […]

How and When to Manufacture Plastic Prototypes featured image
Tuesday June 12, 2018

In nearly every single instance of product development, no matter what industry it’s for, prototyping is a necessary stage that will ultimately determine whether your production efforts will be successful or not. The rise of rapid prototyping has made it both easy and affordable to quickly iterate a plastic prototype. However, there are a range […]

The Advantages of Rapid Manufacturing Over Traditional Manufacturing Methods featured image
Tuesday June 5, 2018

When it comes to mass production, traditional manufacturing methods still reign supreme over other production techniques. However, rapid manufacturing and prototyping has become an integral piece of the design and production process, helping businesses actualize their concepts in a quick and cost-efficient manner. Rapid manufacturing is usually centered around additive manufacturing (more popularly known as […]

What is 5-Axis CNC Machining and How Does it Work? featured image
Wednesday May 30, 2018

With the rise of intricate, small-scale parts, manufacturing evolves daily, now heavily relying on advanced techniques like 5-axis CNC machining. Traditional methods often fail to meet these complex demands, leading industry professionals to adopt these sophisticated processes. Any multi-axis CNC method, such as the 5-axis machining, brings in a whole new dimension of capabilities and […]

7 Ways to Avoid Part Deformation in Aluminum CNC Machining featured image
Friday May 25, 2018

Aluminum is an important industrial raw material. However, because of its relatively low hardness and large thermal expansion coefficient, it can easily deform when being machined into thin-walled and thin plate parts. In addition to improving tool performance and eliminating the internal stress of the material in advance, there are several steps that can be […]
