The Role of Chemical Processing in the Manufacturing Industry

There are numerous processes currently used in the manufacturing industry, and each one is done depending on the product being manufactured. For example, chemical textile manufacturing processes include bleaching, mercerization, and dyeing, while steelmaking requires deoxidation and alloying.

 

Overall, there are four types of manufacturing processes: casting and molding, machining, shearing and forming, and joining. There are more subcategories under each kind, and they have different applications. Furthermore, these operations include numerous chemical processes to help manufacturers create specific products.
