Description

For every component in use there are at least three major processes for its creation. The first stage is the conceptual stage when a component is designed to be made of a certain material with a specific tolerance dimension, to undertake certain loads or stresses, and to serve for a designated number of years in a high temperature or a corrosive environment. The second stage is the manufacturing stage in which the component is fabricated. The process can be brazing, casting, forging, machining, molding, shrink fit, welding or any other methods. The last stage is the application of the component in service. Natural wear is expected, but cracks or other defects may grow unexpectedly fast due to severe environmental effects.
