NJ Engineering Company Creates New Engineering Calculations After Collecting Decades of Performance Data on Plastic Industrial Power Transmission Components
Intech Corporation, a precision gear manufacturer and engineering plastics pioneer located in Closter NJ, recently improved its engineering and gear calculations to incorporate decades of real-world data. Plastics are widely used in a variety of applications due to their low cost and versatility. However, one of the most challenging aspects of working with plastics is the lack of accurate performance data. This is especially true for plastic gears, where there is often no way to accurately calculate life or make appropriate tooth modifications. Every grade of plastic is different and when you start looking at additives, there just isn’t enough data available for every type of material or from every batch to know the actual performance characteristics.
CLOSTER, NJ, July 31, 2022 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ — It is well known that plastics are very versatile materials, capable of being molded into different shapes and sizes. This versatility is largely due to the wide range of properties that can be imparted to plastics by their chemical composition and manufacturing processes. As a result, plastics are used in a wide variety of applications, from everyday household items to critical components in the aerospace and automotive industries.
Despite their widespread use, designing with plastics can still be a guessing game for engineers. Indeed, the behavior of plastics can be difficult to predict, due to the many factors that can influence their performance. These factors include the type of plastic, the additives used to modify its properties, the manufacturing process, and the environment in which the plastic will be used. As a result, engineers often have to rely on experience and intuition when designing with plastics.
Performance data from real world conditions can be a valuable tool for reduce engineering guesswork. This data can provide insight into how plastics behave under various conditions and can be used to develop models that more accurately predict their behavior. Ultimately, this data can help engineers design better products made with plastics.
There are several ways to collect performance data from real-world conditions. One approach is to conduct field tests, in which products made with plastics are used in their intended environment. Another approach is to analyze data from existing products that have been in use for some time. This data can come from a variety of sources, including published scientific literature, industry reports, and supplier data.
Once performance data is collected, it can be used to develop models that predict the behavior of plastics under various conditions. These models can be used to optimize the design of new products or to improve the performance of existing products. Ultimately, this data can help engineers reduce plastic engineering assumptions and improve the quality of plastic components.
One of the most challenging aspects of designing with plastics is the lack of accurate performance data. This is especially true for plastic gears, where there is often no way to accurately calculate life or make appropriate tooth modifications. The purpose of this document is to provide an overview of real-world performance data that can be used to reduce plastic engineering guesswork. This data can help engineers more accurately predict the behavior of plastics in a variety of applications and ultimately improve the design and manufacturing of products made with plastics. The information in this document is based on data collected from a variety of sources, including published scientific literature, industry reports and supplier data.
Although many factors can affect the performance of plastic gears, such as material selection, environment, and loading conditions, the most important factor is the design of the gear teeth. Tooth profile, angle of attack and angle of pressure are all critical design parameters that must be carefully considered to ensure proper operation and longevity of the gear.
In addition to proper tooth design, another important factor to consider when design plastic gears is the effects of environment and load conditions. Exposure to excessive heat or humidity can warp or degrade plastics, while extreme cold can make them brittle and susceptible to breaking. Likewise, improper loading can lead to premature failure of plastic gears.
The goal of Intech’s calculations is to provide engineers with the data needed to design plastic gears that are more reliable and have longer life. By understanding how plastics perform under real-world conditions, engineers can make more informed decisions about material selection, tooth design, and exposure to environmental and load conditions. Ultimately, this will lead to improved products made with plastic gears.
Intech Corporationbased in the north New Jersey, was founded in 1983 and specializes in the design and manufacture of precision machined, self-lubricating plastic gears, rollers and cam followers of non-hygroscopic Intech Power-Core™ material. INTECH has been televised on Bloomberg, nominated as New Jersey Manufacture of the year, and won awards for its long run Can make Necker cam follower and its best automotive power steering gear.
Intech helps customers reduce costs by running maintenance-free motion components and transmitting power at higher speeds, with less downtime, without lubrication and requiring less energy. Low inertia, reduced friction, noise, vibration, contamination, and generally smoother machine operation all help reduce the impact of manufacturing on the environment. We like to think of our products as “clean, green and lean”.
We serve both OEM and maintenance markets and offer advanced motion control solutions in segments such as packaging, printing, paper converting, medical devices, solar equipment, semi- conductors, clean room equipment, transportation, military and many others where lubrication and metal particle contamination will compromise the product or process and where low inertia, long life and strength corrosion are essential for the efficient operation of the equipment. We are proud to work with leading companies in their respective industries.
