Case Study: Optimizing a Press Moulding Process
July 27, 2022 @ 9:00 am - 10:00 am PDT
Many of our previous webinars have introduced knowledge, theories, and background information on composite materials. How do we put these into practice and use them to make engineering decisions to obtain our desired outcome?
In this webinar we will take a thorough look at a case study on the optimization of a thermoset prepreg press moulding process that was optimized to cut the processing time in half by simply adjusting processing parameters. We will explain the theory and practice behind engineering tools used and decisions made throughout the study. The focus will be on material characterization, process simulation, microscopy, mechanical testing, and process verification.
This presentation is part of CKN’s ongoing Application + Impact (AIM) webinar series. Content discussed in the webinar is linked to the Knowledge in Practice Centre, allowing users to access this and other content in a consistent and coherent manner.
