The challenge of metal replacement - Quadrant Engineering Plastics in "Engineering Materials"
There are three main drivers for changing materials in the current engineering and industrial climate. The first, and most obvious, is cost. The second is to lightweight. And the third is to increase performance.
Justing Cunningham - Editor Engineering Materials - discussing the subject of metal replacement, in particular engineering plastics as a replacement material.
As a design engineer, machinist or simple user; have you ever experienced a failure when using plastic components?
Machinable engineering plastics have been used in aerospace applications for over 40 years.
Many designers and machinists have questions about fabricating critical tolerance parts for cutting edge industries like medical and life science equipment manufacturers.
