Everything You Need To Know About Tube Bending

Back in time, technicians at metal manufacturing plants have to bend small-diameter tubes manually. Such work often yielded bad angles, inaccurate dimensions, and cosmetic imperfections. Fortunately, we’ve come a long way since these days. Now, we can bend to exact measurements with machines designed to

What is Shore Hardness? What does it signify?

Shore Hardness Hardness may be defined as a material’s resistance to indentation. The durometer scale was defined by Albert Ferdinand Shore. The instrument as well as the unit of measurement is called as a Durometer. Durometer is used to measure the hardness of polymers, elastomers and rubbers. Today,
