GE Advanced Materials uses 3D laser scanning for car body panels

Determining dimensions and dimensional stability is key in the development of plastic applications. Some polymers (such as PA) demonstrate a complex behavior in dimensional stability. They have significant mold shrinkage, going through thermal cycles, they demonstrate significant post shrinkage and once assembled, they grow as they pick up moisture. GE Advanced Materials’ Plastics Application Technology Center is well equipped to Read more...
