Description

Mass-reducing shaping processes shape a workpiece by removing mass/material from it.

 

Overview of Process

Mass-reducing shaping processes are those that shape a workpiece, and in the process cause it to have a lower mass, most often by removing material.

 

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.
