VersaDamp(TM) 2000 Series vibration- and shock-isolation thermoplastic rubber (TPR) materials feature formulations that can be adjusted to optimize damping performance or durometer or both. Durometers range from 35 to 75 Shore A, and the TPRs feature widely varying energy control capabilities. The materials can be injection-molded into isolators and other equipment components, and can be used as anti-shock and vibration mounts for compactly designed devices with limited isolator sway space such as pagers and cellular phones.
Design collaboration now includes the entire value chain. From suppliers to customers, purchasing to outside experts, the collaborative design team includes internal and external groups. The design process now stretches across the globe in multiple software formats.
A new high-pressure injection-molding technology produces near-net shape parts with 2-inch-thick walls from high-performance materials like PEEK, PAI, and carbon-filled polymers. Parts show no voids, sinks, or porosity, have more consistent mechanical properties, and are stronger.
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.
