Dymax Corporation’s new white paper “Dispensing Light-Curable Materials: Process Controls & Troubleshooting” discusses substrate compatibility, temperature and viscosity, and how to set up a dispense system.
Dymax explains that light-curable adhesives rapidly bond glass, metal, and plastic by curing upon exposure to energy of the proper wavelength. It says many factors can affect the controlled dispensing and processing of these materials. Its new White Paper covers syringe dispensing challenges, air bubbles and cavitation in syringes, using cartridges and pressure pots, and preventive maintenance.
In manufacturing, process controls are used to ensure that products are made to the highest standard possible. Dymax explains that, when effective procedures are laid out for each step in the manufacturing process, it's much easier to reduce the risk of damage, failure, and loss. The White Paper can be downloaded from the Dymax website.
Cobra International will showcase a range of composite products at CAMX 2018, including carbon fibre components for the automotive, transportation, marine, water sports and luxury sectors.
UK company Prodrive Composites has developed a process for manufacturing recyclable composite components that can satisfy future end-of-life requirements without any compromise in the performance of the original parts. The company says the P2T (Primary to Tertiary) process not only simplifies recycling, but endows a composite material with the potential to fulfil three or more useful lifetimes.
Designers at Elemental Motor have utilised tailored fibre placement (TPF) to extend the use of carbon composites in its RP1 sports car.
