Have you ever seen a plastic ball bearing with races made of two different materials? This two-component ball bearing is intended for applications where high speeds and low noise are required. But what is the advantage?
The design possibilities of 3D printing are endless. Civil engineers and architects take advantage of this. Most recently, a house in Beckum was 3D printed. Read more about the many uses of 3D printers in architecture in this article.
An increasing number of companies are advertising food-safe materials and offering more and more materials for processing and packaging in the food industry. But the public eye is also increasingly focused on the plastics that come into contact with food and how they can potentially affect consumers’ health. What exactly does food grade mean? On […]
SmartSlice is a plug-in from Teton Simulation for the Cura 3D printed slicer. With SmartSlice, users can assess the components before the actual printing. It is a finite element simulation plug-in that uses material parameters and simulation technology to calculate the durability and deformation of printed parts before they are even printed. All inputs to […]
The automotive industry requirement profile for materials used in vehicle interiors is continusously becoming more stringent. These requirements can be found in the OEMs specifications and are based on the legal requirements.
