Plastic and Elastomer Component Design for Industrial Equipment
Postgraduate course. Face-to-face.
This postgraduate course can be attended as part of the master's degree Mechanical Engineering and Industrial Equipment.
Designing industrial machines and equipment in this industry involves producing polymers, elastomers and compound materials that must comply with a wide variety of requirements like shape, aspect, environmental behaviour, production volume according to cost, etc.
Nowadays the designer has a growing diversity of compliant materials and processes at their disposition. Special attention is given to the processes that allow for a high degree of versatility when manufacturing in small production runs.
The purpose of this postgraduate course is to provide the knowledge and tools needed to make the best decisions in terms of the functions, shapes, materials and processes based on the requirements of each polymer, elastomer or compound material they wish to design and implement these decisions during this course by doing component design exercises.
