Interdependencies Plastics – Laser Process
The application areas of lasers in plastics engineering are ranging from labelling and welding of parts to toolless Additive Processing. Selective placement of fillers and reinforcements permit tailor-made material properties both regarding production process and application’s requirements. Cited Selective Lasersintering as an example, the influence of material and production process on the inner and finally the part properties are clarified. LKT’s researchers were able to demonstrate with polyoxmethylene (POM) that so far not suitable materials can successfully be pre-processed in order to be manufactured to complex parts via Selective Lasersintering.
The Journal of Plastics Technology is a peer reviewed internet periodical published under the auspices of the Scientific Alliance of Polymer Technology (WAK)
International Polymer Processing, the journal of the Polymer Processing Society, is a discussion forum for the world-wide community of engineers and scientists in the field of polymer processing.
The journal covers research and industrial application in the very specific areas of designing polymer products, processes, processing machinery and equipment.
The Journal of Plastics Technology is indexed in SCOPUS, the largest abstract and citation database of peer-reviewed literature.
