The letters CAD stand for computer-aided design. Architects, drafters, engineers, and artists use CAD software to create plans and construct drawings. Before the age of computers, drawings and blueprints were drafted by hand. CAD is more efficient because the software records lines as vectors based on mathematical equations. Portions of a drawing can be twisted, stretched, or moved. The picture as a whole will automatically adjust.
CAD systems allow an engineer to view a design from any angle with the push of a button and to zoom in or out for close-ups and long-distance views. In addition, the computer keeps track of design dependencies so that when the engineer changes one value, all other values that depend on it are automatically changed accordingly. CAD Software allows manufactures to save money, handle any engineering issues, and achieve the desired conceptual design before the actual prototype or product is developed and built.
CNC (Computer Numerical Control) is a modern machining method use to perform a wide range of machining tasks on a variety of metal and plastic materials. The primary advantage of CNC machining is that it allows for greatly improved accuracy, efficiency, productivity and safety over other forms of metalworking equipment. Virtually every piece of metalworking equipment is available in the CNC – lathes, drills, milling machines, routers, turret punches, grinders and other high-powered cutting devices.
Also known as spark erosion, Electro Discharge Machining (EDM) is the method of removing material by a series of rapidly recurring electric arcing discharges between an electrode (the cutting tool) and the work piece, in the presence of an energetic electric field. Consecutive sparks produced a series of micro-craters on the work piece and remove material along the cutting path by melting and vaporization. Dimensional tolerances are as close as +/- 0.001″.
In brazing, a filler metal or alloy is heated to melting temperature and distributed between two or more close-fitting parts then cooled rapidly to form a sealed joint. The melting temperature of the braze alloy is lower (sometimes substantially) than the melting temperature of the materials being joined. Gun sights that are made using this type of construction will eventually break under certain conditions. At Kensight from idea conception to product delivery we are centered on quality and detail. Our parts are constructed of one solid piece of heat treated steel and will never break – period.
Tungsten Inert Gas (TIG) welding joins reactive metals using a non-consumable Tungsten electrode. Inert gas, commonly Argon, is released at the same time as the electrodes to produce a weld without air contaminants. Tungsten is not the filler, it just creates the arc between the electrode and metal, but a filler may be used if needed. Versa-Pod Bipods use a total of 18 TIG welds on every bipod. This ensures the welded joints will last for years of service and abuse. Visit the TIG vs MIG page to learn more.
Metal Inert Gas (MIG) welding combines two metals by using a filler wire with a current to produce the electrode. Inert gas is also used simultaneously to protect the weld from any air contaminants. This type of welding tends to be less reliable, dirtier and requires a filler metal. This is why we choose to use TIG welding on our VersaPod Bipod. Visit the TIG vs MIG page to learn more.
