MATERIALS: Precision fit, aesthetics, strength and numerous stud sizes, styles and receptacles make Southco’s D8 Dzus Panex quarter-turn quick-access fastener line a leading choice for a wide variety of applications. Precision rolling creates a perfect fit, even at low to moderate order volumes. Multiple surface-finish styles complement a variety of applications. Numerous sizes and styles satisfy a variety of mounting configurations and applications. Snap-in and clip-on receptacles minimize assembly time, to reduce installed costs. Spring steel receptacle clips provide a snug, yet grip-tolerant fit. Front-mount press-in receptacle is suitable for soft metals and thermoplastic materials. Mix and match stud headstyles and lengths with appropriate receptacles to accommodate total material thicknesses from 0.7 to 32.4 mm. They are available in 4, 6 and 9 mm stud sizes, in steel and stainless-steel materials and are available in multiple finish options - zinc plate with chromate, zinc plate with black chromate, and bright chrome. Selected receptacle styles accommodate maximum loads up to 65 lb. For use in industry applications including: boiler controls, CCTV camera covers, HVAC access panels, lighting, motorcycle fairings, off-highway vehicles and protective helmets.
Researchers working with additive manufacturing have said multimaterial techniques will allow industry “to fabricate materials with combinations of density, strength, and thermal expansion that do not exist [yet].”
The term "multiphysics" is used to describe the simulation of multiple types of physics and their influence on one another -- for example, the investigation of the behavior of a chemical in liquid form will involve both chemistry and fluid dynamics.
