RT Prototyping | Rapid Tooling

An Application of Rapid prototyping is Rapid tooling, this an automatic fabrication of machine tools. Tooling is one of the most costly steps in the manufacturing process. Tools are often complex and need to be wear resistant for production. To meet these requirements, molds and dies are traditionally made by CNC machining, EDM or other methods. All traditional methods are

Plastics | Types Of Plastics | Classification Of Plastics

What are Plastics? Plastics are a material that is made up mainly of macromolecules, that can be made fluid by the action of heating and pressurizing, and that can be processed into end products with any useful shape you want to make. Classification of Plastics Plastics can be classified into: 1. Thermoplastics and Thermo sets 2. Amorphous Thermoplastics and Crystalline
