What is selective deposition lamination?

Leslie's Blog

The ASTM standards organization has a definition for sheet lamination– an additive manufacturing process in which sheets of material are bonded to form an object. 3D printing /additive manufacturing continues to evolve, so there are several variations on lamination.

All About Acrylic Plastic

3D Printing Hub

It is often used as a laminated layer over Polycarbonate (PC). Plasticizers are used as additives to improve impact resistance, lower glass transition temperature, or enhance processing properties. Electrical : Plastic optical fiber used for short-range communication is made from PMMA or Acrylic plastic. Hence, CNC machines are a good fit with acrylic plastics. Acrylic is not the strongest plastic and is actually quite brittle.

What is Rapid Prototyping?

In'Tech Industies

Rapid prototyping first emerged in the scene in the late 1980s with the introduction of a technology called stereolithography, which is based on hardening of liquid plastic by exposing it to ultraviolet laser. Laminated object manufacturing, fused deposition modeling (FDM), and selective laser sintering (SLS) technologies were introduced in the later years.

What is injection molding?

3D Printing Hub

Injection molding essentially involves injecting a melted plastic mixture into the cavity of a tightly held mold. The injected plastic is hot when injected and cools down to take the shape of the mold. The plastic material used for injecting is of two types. The thermosetting plastic cures permanently and then burns if you try to melt it again. Hence, once it is cured, a thermosetting plastic cannot be re-used. First, plastic is fed into the hopper.

Laminated into this film in an alternate pattern are the anode and cathode layers, commonly aluminum and copper. This folded matrix is then saturated with a solvent-based organic electrolyte, before it is enveloped in a soft plastic pouch and encased into the battery container.
