This course focuses on resilient products manufactured from rubber and/or rubber like materials, as well as plastics and thermoplastic elastomer products. Resilient product manufacturing processes vary significantly across a wide spectrum of applications and methods. Because of the unique nature of any given resilient product, it is almost impossible to develop a uniform set of design models. There are "rules-of-thumb", exceptions to rules, generalizations, and assumptions, all of which are applied (and often misapplied) to product design. This seminar updates you with current best methods of resilient product design. A higher probability of success can be achieved by integrating a thorough understanding of interactions between material selections and the manufacturing processes and their respective impacts on product performance requirements. A successful resilient product design results in a robust high quality product that is manufactured cost effectively.
Resilient product display
The instructors will bring nearly 1,000 samples of resilient products to use as display and hands-on workshop examples
