Calculation concept shortens the design process of injection molded parts

Using a new calculation process, it is now possible to predict fiber orientation-dependent component behavior in relation to shaped elements at an early stage and thus design the component in accordance with the expected load. This reduces costly iteration cycles and thereby shortens the entire development and manufacturing process. What is more, the concept can Read more about Calculation concept shortens the design process of injection molded parts[…]

More range for electric vehicles: functionalized thermoplastic sandwich components within minutes
