Taxonomy: Mass Conserving

Taxonomy Path

Sub Processes



Mass-conserving shaping processes are those that shape a workpiece without removing mass/material from it.


Overview of Process

Mass-conserving processes are those that are designed to shape the workpiece in various manners, but result in the workpiece having essentially the same mass and amount of material that it had before the process.


Additional Notes

This is a classification process, not a end-node process. Specifying the detailed end-node process required will produce a better RfD search result.
