Houses have doors, and parts have indentations, through-holes and other features that don’t point straight up or down and could act as undercuts in a two-part mould. Designers using rapid injection moulding can address these challenges in a variety of ways, including side-action cams, sliding shut-offs, pick-outs and bump-offs, as discussed in this article from Proto Labs.
Surtech Surface Technology Products | Thu, 23 Oct 2014
The ISOJET III weld cleaner, which is available from Surtech, uses a thermo-chemical method to remove oxide layers from stainless steel in a way that is faster, less hazardous and more ecological than grinding, brushing, shot blasting and chemical processes with aggressive pickling pastes.
