Cost-effective Metal replacement for Automotive Applications
Progress evolves at an exponential rate, penetrating new frontiers and exceeding unprecedented results. Metal Replacement in the automotive sector is undergoing an era of strong evolution that Roboze has taken under its wing with its development of Carbon PA: 3D printing and carbon fiber combined to create customized parts with co-benefits of emission and cost reductions.
The accurate term can be used when a 3D print object respects the size of the CAD project.
The precise term, however, can be used when more printed objects are very similar to each other.
One can easily deduce the subtle boundary between the two words which, in everyday use, are synonymous, but in the technical jargon, and therefore in the world of 3D printing, they are words that are related but have different meanings.
Scientific and research labs, from mechanics to robotics to chemistry, often need to create customized tools for the realization of experimental set-ups and laboratory equipment.
A lab’s efficiency revolves around workflow; what should be a free flowing transition from idea to realization is often slowed down due to the lack of personalized tools, third party implementation, add-on costs for part uniqueness and excessive wait times.
Nylon 6 is one of the most widely used techno-polymers among all commercially available nylons due to its good performance-cost ratio. Often used in the mechanical industry for the manufacturing of gears, bushings, cams, pulleys, wear-resistant guides, and in applications where good fluidity and wear resistance is required. Nylon 6 possesses a number of unique mechanical properties, such as good tensile strength, compression and fatigue, combined with low friction coefficient that make it...
Manual lamination or hand lay-up technique is a basic technique, widely used in various sectors, where the laminate is progressively composed through the sequential positioning of pre-impregnated carbon fibre sheets that characterize the final lay-up.
Choosing the right material for the mold is of great importance as it determines the number of parts to be produced, final dimensions of produced parts, as well as the cost of the mold.
PEEK (polyetheretherketone), the highest performing thermoplastic semi-crystalline polymer, today widely used in the aerospace industry as a suitable metal alloy replacement in numerous structural applications.
The advantages that underlie PEEK are its mechanical resistance properties, thermal and chemical lightness, fundamental features in areas such as aerospace, where weight reduction reduces consumption and emissions, increasing aircraft efficiency.
