What is Durometer Shore Hardness?

The Durometer or Shore durometer is typically used as a standard for measuring the hardness of non-metallic materials such as polymer, rubber, elastomer. The Shore hardness is measured with a device known as a Durometer and the determined hardness values are therefore referred to as Durometer hardness. There are several durometer scales, used for measuring hardness of materials with different properties.

How to create Metal or Plastic Prototype with CNC Machining?

Given the part's geometry, CNC machining can be the most suitable and rapid method for creating metal and plastic prototypes. Usually, CNC machines produce a 3D object by removing excess material from the solid block, with the aid of cutting tools. The movement of these tools is precisely controlled by the series of cutter paths, generated directly from the 3d CAD model.

Injection Moulding Process Explained

Injection Moulding is a manufacturing process for producing parts by injecting molten material into a mould. Most injection moulding processes use thermoplastics because they can be melted and cooled down several times. The plastic injection moulding industry has come a long way since its inception, with the ability to produce large quantities of plastic products at a low price.
