The ten (11) key principles of extrusion are the distillation of my many years working with this process. They are presented in a practical, non-academic way, with no prerequisites other than an open mind and desire to learn. They are intended to be useful to plant engineers, production supervisors, technicians and operators in extrusion factories, as well as people who sell or buy extruded products or sell to those who make them. Mechanical and thermal principles are covered, as well as manufacturing costs and measurement of critical variables, all related to production needs and product...
No matter how large or small of a molding operation, three are numerous production solutions utilizing recycled dry ice. This webinar discusses those various uses from in-machine mold cleaning (or on the bench) that can mean the difference between mediocre performance and high-profit productivity, automated surface preparation of plastic parts prior to painting or coatings , automated deflashing or deburring systems of plastic parts, and cleaning injection screws.
Companies are under pressure to deliver products to market faster. Empowering professional designers, shrinking lead times and unleashing creativity—those are the demands of a professional rapid prototyping 3D printing solution. Join this seminar to find out how to implement a more efficient and streamlined workflow from design to 3D print; deliver optimal results at every prototyping stage; produce more accurate, detailed and repeatable prototypes at lower cost; and maximize your overall solution effectiveness by optimizing available run time, workflow performance and yield.
This webinar enables designers to learn how to create prototypes that look, feel and operate like finished products, without the need for painting or assembly. Attend this webinar and learn ow OtterBox uses Stratasys 3D printing, how 3D printing helps with speed and accuracy of design and product development, different capabilities of the Stratasys J750™ 3D Printer and more.
The future of flow control is an automated system, integrated into the molding machine, running in the background of your mold set up. The flows and temperatures are set when the mold is qualified, and now those settings follow the mold wherever its program goes. That future is here now with the Flowcon Plus automatic flow regulator.
Manufacturing relies on tools and aids, including jigs, fixtures, templates and gauges to maintain quality and production efficiency. With 3D printing technology, you can put more complex and custom jigs and fixtures on the production floor, in less time. In this webinar you'll see how manufacturing companies are using 3D printed jigs and fixtures for increased productivity.
Purging compounds cannot hold a bubble when purging extrusion blown film lines...or can they? Surely, there aren't purges that can be used on super engineering resins above 750°F.... but, are you sure about that? Are you struggling with cleaning inorganic pigments or UV stabilizers off your tooling? Is hot runner cleaning the longest part of your changeover? If you answer yes to any of these questions, maybe we can help with this advanced purging webinar geared toward more complex purging problems.
In today’s challenging plastics market, you need to improve efficiency and reduce overall production costs in order to stay competitive. Along with enhancing your operation, there’s also the added pressure to meet your customer’s expectations while you provide them with quality service. Join us for this webinar to learn what you can do to stay competitive. We’ll discuss the impact of manufacturing performance control and how a focus on quality in every aspect of the operation can improve efficiencies and reduce costs. You’ll also discover how a modern ERP built for purpose can enable...
Making hollow composite parts poses numerous challenges. Some shapes are impractical, if not impossible, to make with consistent, acceptable results using conventional tooling. FDM soluble cores offer a better alternative because they're easily removed from inside the composite shape, regardless of complexity. Watch the webinar to see how FDM soluble cores make the production of hollow composites easier, with greater design freedom.
