The other day we were asked to remove a section out of a valve. It’s not a huge valve but milling it would’ve been difficult all the way to the center so we put it on the EDM to blast out the side to make the inside visible. through to the stuff on the inside. Here are the images.
This was all burned at 150 amps which is max for this machine.
Nothing crazy interesting, but I thought it may be neat.
I was a little bored today so I decided to draw a valve. While the dimensions are entirely drawn from my head and the valve itself wouldn’t be very efficient, I like the look of gas compressor valves. It took me a couple of hours to draw but they look OK.
I didn’t tag them or describe them. There is a seat, a guard and a valve plate. I omitted the dowel pin, bolt, center nub and lock nut. I just wanted to see what it looked like in solids. 🙂
