The contour method is a residual stress measurement technique that provides a two-dimensional map of residual stress on a plane. Hill Engineering’s most recent case study explores how we determine the uncertainty in these measurements.Continue reading Case Study: Contour Method Uncertainty
Hill Engineering’s Rapid Forge Design is an automated tool for the fast and reliable design of 2-piece, closed-die impression forgings. The brochure below provides a rundown of the highlights from this powerful software, which can drastically reduce the time needed to design a forging to industry-accepted standards.
In our latest vlog, Camille sits down with John Watton to discuss our new Rapid Forge DesignTM software, as well as give a demonstration of its powerful capabilities. Watch the vlog above and be sure to take a look at the case study for more information.Continue reading Rapid Forge Design vlog demonstration
What do IT bands and bandwagons have in common?
Not much, unless you’re HE team member Caleb. For him, these were both catalysts in kickstarting his newfound hobbies of 2020.Continue reading HE Hobby Spotlight: Caleb
The year 2020 has made some interesting changes to the way we live our lives. For a lot of folks, this has been spending more time at home than ever before. If you didn’t have anything but your thoughts to keep you company during the unrelenting hours, you might yourself going mad. Luckily, some of our Hill Engineering team members have found fun hobbies during the quarantine, for those rare moments when their minds are not occupied by residual stress.Continue reading HE Hobby Spotlight: Camille
Unless you’re a sponge living under the sea, you probably don’t have an aquatic snail as your primary pet. That’s not the case in my household, however, where our only non-human friend is Sir Loin, the freshwater ramshorn snail.Continue reading HE Pet Spotlight: Sir Loin
The world has changed drastically in the past few months. With cases of the Novel Coronavirus on the rise in California and in the United States, Hill Engineering is doing its part to ensure the safety of our employees and our customers.Continue reading Coronavirus response efforts at Hill Engineering
Distortion of parts during the machining process is a significant problem faced by many machining vendors. This phenomenon typically results from the release and redistribution of residual stress in the material once the part is unclamped from the machine table. When not accounted for, machining distortion can lead to out-of-tolerance parts that either require reworking, or have to be scrapped. Continue reading Case Study: Multi-step machining distortion modeling
