August 2: Stratasys & Carbon Fiber for Soft Jaw Application

The last August 2nd webinar, “Explore the spectrum of carbon fiber composite material for Soft Jaw application,” is by Stratasys, at 2 pm EST. As part designs become more complex, it’s necessary to create soft jaws that can hold the pieces for machining operations, which is a tricky, time-consuming process. During this webinar, Stratasys Application Engineer Jeremy Hui will be joined by Tim Geraghty, a Manufacturing Engineer with Gosiger’s Engineered Systems Division, to discuss the potential of using FDM 3D printers for this application, along with strong, carbon fiber-reinforced materials like ABS CF10, Nylon 12CF, and Nylon CF10. There will also be a live Q&A session.

“Additive manufacturing provides a lower cost and more efficient solution than other alternatives, allowing manufacturers to 3D print soft jaws for work holding applications in a fraction of the time.

“Stratasys FDM 3D printers provide manufacturers with reliable, high-performance, and chemical-resistant thermoplastics to withstand the harshest manufacturing environments.”

This Thursday, August 4th, at 11 am EST, an hour-long “3D PRINTING TRAINING PROGRAMME” will be held on Zoom to present the results of this project. After the structure of this “multiplier event” is introduced, our own Editor-in-Chief, Michael Molitch-Hou, will be speaking about what 3D printing is, before the program moves on to the history and outputs of the project, the Introductory Guide to 3D Printing that was compiled by the project partners, and two other guides and an online training program. At the end, there will be a Q&A session about the uses of 3D printing and other related topics.

“Regarding the skills that will be needed by workers in new age technology fields, there are three basic skill fields. First, there are cognitive skills, which include digital literacy, as well as advanced problem-solving and creative and critical thinking skills. Second, there are social and behavioural skills like conscientiousness, grit, and openness to experience. Third, there are job- or occupation-specific technical skills, in this case related to robotics systems and 3D printing.”
