  1. 1. Smart Plug – Optimization of design and material regarding environmental aspects : Mechanical design of an environmentally friendly Smart Plug

    University essay from Karlstads universitet/Fakulteten för hälsa, natur- och teknikvetenskap (from 2013)

    Author : Nadia Samson; [2020]
    Keywords : ;

    Abstract : A Smart Plug is a remote-controlled power socket that allows the user to, through an app, control any appliances that is plugged into the outlet. Since not all appliances are constructed with a smart function, the usage of a Smart Plug can be beneficial to facilitate the everyday life. READ MORE

  2. 2. 3D-Printed Injection Molds

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Produktutveckling

    Author : David Helin; Kristoffer Palmér; [2020]
    Keywords : Product development; Prototyping; Additive manufacturing; Injection molding; 3D-Printing; Technology and Engineering;

    Abstract : This master thesis describes the development process of a prototyping process. It was carried out in collaboration with Axis Communications. When creating plastic prototypes, development engineers usually have two options, 3D-printing or injection molding using a soft tool. READ MORE

  3. 3. The Environmental Impact of an Automotive Plastic Component : A lifecycle approach of a deco panel scenario analysis of two different plastics

    University essay from Karlstads universitet/Fakulteten för hälsa, natur- och teknikvetenskap (from 2013)

    Author : Paula Ackerstierna; [2019]
    Keywords : LCA; car; instrument panel;

    Abstract : The transport sector is a major end-user of energy. As consumers are becoming aware and conscious of their environmental footprint making the enviromental footprint of automobile components one of the requirements in new product design development. The purpose of the study is to identify environmental impacts of a plastic panel. READ MORE

  4. 4. Determination and implementation of polymer parameters into simulations of the twin-screw extrusion process.

    University essay from Högskolan i Jönköping/JTH, Maskinteknik

    Author : Marcus Strandberg; [2015]
    Keywords : Polymers; melt flow rate; density; heat; viscosity; standard; measurements; machine; extrusion; simulation; properties.;

    Abstract : This thesis was conducted in cooperation with a Swedish company that develops and manufactures plastic compounds. An increasing need for identifying material properties is seen within the industry in order to predict the outcome of the extrusion process by using simulations. READ MORE

  5. 5. Anisotropic material modeling and impact simulation of a brush cutter casing made of a short fiber reinforced plastic

    University essay from Linköpings universitet/HållfasthetsläraLinköpings universitet/Tekniska högskolan

    Author : Oskar Norman; [2014]
    Keywords : anisotropic material modeling; short fiber reinforced plastics; impact simulation; Digimat; LS-DYNA;

    Abstract : A popular way to reduce weight in industrial products without compromising the strength or stiffness is to replace components made of metal by plastics that have been reinforced by glass fibers. When fibers are introduced in a plastic, the resulting composite usually becomes anisotropic, which makes it much more complex to work with in simulation software. READ MORE
