Rubber Characterization for CAD Webinar is Available On-Demand

Through chemorheological analysis, rubber fabricators and design engineers can understand the key quality characteristics of molded rubber parts before an initial prototype is made. Common types of CAD software support this computer-aided engineering (CAE) analysis and can use data that is acquired from Alpha Technologies’ instruments. This April 2021 presentation covers the use of this equipment for CAE and explains how to enter the collected data into different types of CAD software.
