What has to be considered for the component design?
Several key factors in process engineering depend on component design. Increasingly smaller components and more complex geometries, spaces to be filled or undercuts determine whether atmospheric or vacuum processes are used, for example. Our Technology Centre is there to provide you with advice and assistance as early as the initial project phases. Among other things, we advise you on how to design and optimise components to ensure that they are suitable for dispensing.
Aside from the properties of the potting material, the component design is of utmost importance regarding process engineering. Increasingly smaller components and more complex geometries, spaces to be filled or undercuts not only determine the method of application but also whether atmospheric or vacuum processes should be used. The latter can lead to higher costs and longer cycle times in production due to the additional technical effort involved. To minimize the risks, it is advisable to consult the respective application experts early on and adjust the component design to the criteria of the potting process. Here, we can provide advice and assistance in the form of customer development projects.
