KETIV - Plastics 101: Part 1 - Webinar Series
In this four part webinar series, we will look at the challenges that engineers find themselves facing in today's climate. We’ll show you how to recognize possible problems and techniques to predict and resolve these issues.
Successfully developing plastics components can be one of the biggest challenges any engineer has to deal with. There are typically many choices, variables and a lot of potential pitfalls. What you design in CAD is never what you get in-hand. Most of the time, the first samples received either do not fit, function or look as expected. Many part design choices that are previously made can impact your likelihood of success.
In this four part webinar series, we will look at the challenges that engineers find themselves facing in today’s climate. We’ll show you how to recognize possible problems and techniques to predict and resolve these issues. This information will allow you to understand what information is required to make good decisions when designing plastics components.
In Part 1, we will focus on:
- Plastics Material Advantages & Disadvantages
- Four Key Pillars of Plastics Design
- Part Design
- Mold Design
- Exploration of the four key pillars
Part 2 (10 AM PST, 03/24/2020): Upfront Part Design
- How early geometry, material and gate location decisions drive product performance and quality for life of the product
Part 3 (10 AM PST, 04/21/2020): Mold & Process Development
- Continuing the efforts with tooling and process optimization
Part 4 (10 AM PST, 05/19/2020): The importance of simulation inputs and results
- Assuring accurate inputs and result interpretation
