Technical brief for the processing engineer involved in injection molding discusses thermoplastic composites and explores the results of a study designed to determine the surface finish qualities of certain thermoplastics. A section on annealing addresses the reasons why composites should be annealed and describes how annealing should be done. A list of annealing tips and facts are also included.
This slideshow includes several versions of multi-materials machines, two different composites processes including one at microscale, and two vastly different metals processes. Potential game-changers down the line include three microscale processes.
Hosted CAD or PDM systems is an emerging technology that offers many advantages over traditional on premise workstation CAD configurations and is making many companies rethink how to deliver future CAD software solutions.
Focus on Fundamentals consists of 45-minute on-line classes that cover a host of technologies. You learn without leaving the comfort of your desk. All classes are taught by subject-matter experts and all are archived. So if you can't attend live, attend at your convenience.
