When dispensing form-in-place gaskets—for example, on the die-cast housing of an automotive control unit—it’s important to apply the material precisely along the contour of the part. On the housing, the contour runs partly in a straight groove, partly around corners and screw locations and partly along various radiuses. In the area where the plug housing will be installed, the material often must be applied on a ramped surface. All this makes consistent, gap-free dispensing difficult.
The new DC803 Dispensing Cell from Scheugenpflug GmbH promises to make the process faster, easier and more reliable.
Impossible Objects, a 3D printer and materials company, has developed a composite-based additive manufacturing technology called (CBAM). CBAM is a new process that is fundamentally different from conventional additive manufacturing technologies.
The innovative medical devices that improve patients’ quality of life require robust materials that meet specific manufacturing and end-use demands.
