Unique service: determine service life of 3D printed polymer components

igu-blog-adm | 5. February 2021

Unplanned machine downtime is a horror for any engineer, especially as a failed component can, with a bit of bad luck, lead to serious damage of the machine. The associated costs and effort cause considerable trouble for many companies. Very few manufacturers are in a position to state the expected service life of their components. […]

How to optimise every component for injection moulding

Lars Butenschön | 29. January 2021

It is a designer’s worst-case scenario: days and weeks go by to design and manufacture an injection mould. When production finally begins and the first component falls out of the mould, one gets a nasty surprise. The surface of the moulding has dents that not only look unsightly but also impair the function. Why is […]
