In electrical engineering, a disconnector, disconnect switch or isolator switch is used to ensure that an electrical circuit is completely de-energized for service or maintenance.
Filing is a material removal process in manufacturing. Similar, depending on use, to both sawing and grinding in effect, it is functionally versatile, but used mostly for finishing operations, namely in deburring operations.
Decambering is the metalworking process of removing camber, or horizontal bend, from strip shaped materials.
A circuit breaker is an automatically operated electrical switch designed to protect an electrical circuit from damage caused by excess current from an overload or short circuit.
Centrifugal casting or rotocasting is a casting technique that is typically used to cast thin-walled cylinders. It is used to cast such materials as metal, glass, and concrete.
In mathematics, a manifold is a topological space that locally resembles Euclidean space near each point.
