On Thursday July 6th, a group of 7 recent graduates from the Zhongshan Polytechnic University came to visit Star Rapid to understand more about manufacturing in a high-tech environment.
3D printing continues to evolve as one potential solution for making rapid prototype plastic injection mold tooling. There are some limitations to this process and its application and Gordon Styles explain them during an interview with Digital Engineering Magazine.
Last week our founder and president Gordon Styles was a guest on Leslie Langnau’s MakePartsFast podcast. In the interview he discussed designing for plastic injection molding as well as 3D printed conformal cooling cores.
Since July of 2015, Chloe Kow has been the manager of Star Rapid’s DMLM 3D metal printing service. As one of the few women in a senior engineering position for this emergent technology, she is the perfect candidate to speak about the need to encourage more young women to get involved early in STEM careers.
For prototypes and low-volume production, one of the ways to ensure quick turnaround on your parts is by keeping designs simple and not over-engineering them
What’s the best surface finish for your part? The answer to that question depends on having a clear understanding not only of what the product is expected to do but also the environment in which it will function.
