Nylon 66 is a crystalline engineering thermoplastic made up of hexamethylenediamine and adipic acid that undergo a condensation reaction to form the polymer and is noted for the following performance characteristics: Chemical ResistanceAbrasion ReistanceFriction...
Estimating Part Weights

Estimating Part Weights

One of the major benefits of 3D math data for component designs is the ability of CAD programs to accurately generate part volume (cm³).  To calculate estimated part weight in grams using 3D CAD data multiply the calculated part volume (cm³) by the specific gravity...
