Terms Related to Used Machinery
Machinery is a vital part of life. Virtually everything used, from chair legs to kitchen bowls, has to be crafted. Shops have to create these supplies for commercial distribution. There are many milling devices and methods. Following are some terms related to machinery and machining processes.
Deformable Material – Deformable material can only be shaped through pressure.
Horsepower – Horsepower refers to how quickly a machine can perform a function. A major factor in determining horsepower is the machine’s torque.
Inductance – This is the capability of an electric current to resist fluctuations in energy flows. Machines lacking inductance could easily be damaged by power surges.
Jogging – Jogging is temporarily altering, usually slowing, a machine’s speed.
Lathe – A lathe is a piece of equipment that revolves to perform a task. These tools are used in shops for milling or to otherwise reshape a material. Pottery wheels are an example of a lathe.
Magazine – This is a piece of equipment that can be attached to industrial machinery. Magazines typically hold objects that are to be filled, like plastic containers.
Plugging – Plugging is stopping and reversing a machine’s movement. Plugging can reduce the life of certain equipment.
Potentiometer – This is a tool used to fluctuate the voltage of equipment. While the instrument’s settings can be calibrated, the machine’s voltage will still remain between two preset points.
Rotor – The rotor is the part of a motor that revolves. This instrument includes the core, shaft, and fan.
Thermoformable Material – Thermoformable material can only be shaped through vacuum or pressure after it has been heated.
New machinery can be an expensive investment for business owners, especially if they are only going to be used for a limited amount of time. They can also be used for a variety of businesses, from a construction company, to a factory, to agriculture. More often than not, this type of used equipment is some kind of heavy machinery. Mechanic shops, textile manufacturers and milling are also industries that tap into used equipment.
Surplus machinery is an additional resource for business owners. Heavy duty equipment like milling machines, hydraulic compressors and conveyor belts can be a large investment. They may be sold cheaper used or as surplus tools. Depending on the industry, machinery has a long history. One of the first agricultural tools, for instance, was the plow. The first engine powered tractor was not even invented until 1868. The lathe, on the other hand, dates all the way back to early Egyptian times. Now, there are both automatic and manual lathes that can be used as instruments in constructing the parts for many other machines.
This machinery is used for agricultural, commercial and industrial purposes. Many dealers, besides having a branch dealing in cheap, used or surplus machinery, also have a wholesale branch for larger companies. They specialize in rollers, electronic compressors, pumps, and other supplies. Many dealers also carry replacement parts and even restore used machinery. If you are trying to fix a broken compressor or tractor, look up more information on local dealers. They should have parts like chains, gears, and even plastic wheels.
