Materials: Clariant Masterbatches has developed a range of color masterbatches formulated for use with PEEK materials, and the company is also producing specialty compound pre-colored PEEK materials, which are available in small and large quantities. These fully compounded grades can also incorporate fiber reinforcements, conductive or antistatic fillers, as well as other performance-enhancing additives.
Clariant’s RENOL® color masterbatch series includes more than a dozen standard colors designed specifically for use in PEEK polymers. Standard-color masterbatches can be delivered in five to seven business days, and custom colors are also available. All meet the requirements of high-performance applications in markets like aerospace, automotive, electrical devices, military and medical.
At the Design News webinar on June 27, learn all about aluminum extrusion: designing the right shape so it costs the least, is simplest to manufacture, and best fits the application's structural requirements.
For industrial control applications, or even a simple assembly line, that machine can go almost 24/7 without a break. But what happens when the task is a little more complex? That’s where the “smart” machine would come in. The smart machine is one that has some simple (or complex in some cases) processing capability to be able to adapt to changing conditions. Such machines are suited for a host of applications, including automotive, aerospace, defense, medical, computers and electronics, telecommunications, consumer goods, and so on. This radio show will show what’s possible with smart machines, and what tradeoffs need to be made to implement such a solution.
