Benefits of Wire Erosion
Wire erosion which is also known as Electronic Discharge Machining (EDM) is a highly accurate process where a strand of wire is used to cut through the workpiece. During the process, electrical sparks between the workpiece and the wire are used to cut the workpiece.
Spark Erosion Explained
When dealing with difficult materials or complex shapes and sizes, spark erosion is one of the most successful forms of machining. There are no cutting forces so the integrity of the material is always maintained. The process is highly controlled and allows for proper removal of material even on delicate materials.
What Exactly Does an Aerospace Engineer Do?
An aerospace engineer does whatever his current job requires him to do. During his undergraduate training, an aerospace engineer is trained and given all the fundamentals of all subsystems that are related to rockets, aircraft, spacecraft and rotorcraft. You also receive training on design, testing and some aspects of manufacture.

Engineering growth: Coventry manufacturer invests half a million pounds in new machinery and calls for more skilled workers
A Coventry engineering firm based at Charter Avenue Industrial Estate has embarked on a growth program that will see its turnover double to £20 million within five years.
In order to meet this target MNB Precision Ltd has invested over £500,000 in four new machines and taken on nearly 30 staff over the last 12 months. It hopes to fill a further 15 skilled positions by the end of year, bringing the total workforce to 80.
What is Nuclear Engineering?
Many people will automatically think of power plants when they hear the word nuclear. However, nuclear engineering is much more than that.
Difference between Sandblasting and Shot Peening
Here at MNB Precision, we have teams of precision engineers specialising in many different engineering services including shot peening. One of the many questions we see is what is the difference between shot peening and sandblasting? So we have listed the advantages and disadvantages of both services.
How important is Precision Engineering
With the modern manufacturing industry, we wouldn’t be where we are without precision engineering.
Only precision engineering can handle the demand of technology with the finer requirements and mass production. Many people don’t think about the precision that goes into making parts, whether they are large or small, precision engineering takes place in different industries such as nuclear and aerospace. Precision engineering ensures a longer running life along with less wear or fatigue, giving a better lifespan compared to manually manufactured parts.
Coordinate Measuring Machines Inspections
What are CMM inspections?
A CMM (coordinate measuring machine) inspection is where objects for products can be inspected for quality and measured. A Coordinate Measuring Machine is used to measure the dimensions and characteristics of an object. It can measure a single point in a 3D shape or the whole shape. CMM is made up of three axes X, Y and Z and each axis helps to measure the product as well as be able to position accurately in other precision machines.
Everything you need to know about CNC Machines
CNC Machining Explained
CNC (Computer Numerical Control) Milling Machines are controlled by software allowing you to create designs easily and the machine to create the product, simple. However, digging deeper into the world of CNC it can get more complex. For example, a CNC machine can host a wide variety of different functions including routeing, milling, drilling and cutting which means they are incredibly versatile machines.
