Metal and Wood Manufacturing
Besides plastics or synthetics, metal and wood are the most common building materials used in manufacturing. Not only are household objects made of these substances, but most of the tools used in major manufacturing processes are made out of metal or wood as well.
Compared to the age of the earth, man has only been shaping metal into advanced tools for a short amount of time. Even after the first people to use metal ore began fashioning tools, they were crude and basic. Up until a little over a century ago, man wasn’t even using metal to harness, transfer, or store the power of electricity. Today, mankind is building skyscrapers that pierce the clouds.
Chances are that you won’t be building a skyscraper in your backyard. This site is dedicated to educating readers on some of the more common manufacturing processes that involve metal and examples of said processes that most of us take for granted.
