These are short, narrated presentations designed to explain HYTAC plug assist materials to thermoformers and toolmakers. These modules will cover everything from basic material selection through to technical troubleshooting with a helping of material science and thermodynamics for good measure.
The fourth module in our learning series is all about CNC turning (using a lathe) and polishing of HYTAC. What type of inserts should I use? Positive or negative rake angles? What type of sandpaper should I use? These questions and more are covered in this module. It is our goal to help you understand the characteristics and behavior of HYTAC plug materials so that you can improve your thermoforming process.
Here's what you'll get from each module in the series:
