What is Mechanical Design?
Mechanical design is the process of designing parts, components, products, or systems of mechanical nature. In the modern world of products, most assemblies would have incorporated electronics such as printed circuit board assemblies, cables, sensors and actuators. For instance, mechanical design encompasses creating various machine components such as shafts, bearings, clutches, gears, and fasteners and custom design parts for various manufacturing processes like Injection moulding, metal casting, CNC machining and 3D printing.
Threaded Inserts for plastics provide reusable metal threads and secure tight threaded joints in thermoplastics and thermosets. These threaded inserts have more pull-out force on a mating part than a self-tapping screw in plastics. They are also designed for easy and fast installation into plastics using in-moulding, cold, heat or ultrasonic pressing.
The force necessary to compress an O-ring to maintain an acceptable sealing line of contact is referred to as the O-ring compression force
The fundamental principle of 3D printing is that it fabricates a 3d object directly from a 3D model by adding layer by layer of material and fusing them.
Rapid prototyping is the process of quickly creating a preliminary version of the product to evaluate the design and its functionality
Engineering product design is done for various purposes and in various ways resulting in different product design types.
Injection moulding surface finish as per SPI and VDI classification systems – Gloss, semi-gloss, matte and textured surface finish
A mechanical shaft is a rotating member usually of circular cross-section either solid or hollow, which transmits power and rotational motion
Mechanical springs such as compression, extension and torsional springs are elastic devices that store mechanical potential energy
Self-tapping screws for plastic form or tap its threads when screwed into plastic and are installed into pre-drilled or moulded pilot holes
