Traditional snap-fit development methods focus on locking feature behavior, primarily by using stress/strain and assembly force calculations. In reality, snap-fits are a complex attachment system and lock behavior is but one element of an application. Important requirements like ease of assembly and product reliability are highly dependent on interacting elements of the attachment interface.
This class introduces a comprehensive approach to understanding and developing snap-fit attachments. Participants learn fundamental concepts of snap-fit attachment technology. Real-life lessons-learned and sample parts are used to reinforce the ideas introduced in the class.
Participants receive a copy of the instructor's book, "The First Snap-Fit Handbook, 2nd edition."
