Concept for e-Mobility Seating
It is believed that the interior design of the automotive will rival exterior design in importance. The seating and interiors will become the differentiator that powertrain once was for OEMs. This new concept for e-Mobility seating suggests Office style thin suspension seating made with Hytrel® can replace PU foam and metal springs.

Hot Runner Manual for Robust Molding of Semi-crystalline Resins
Maximizing productivity is an important factor in determining part cost. One way to improve productivity is using a hot runner system. The decision when to use a hot runner system is mainly influenced by “yield” as hot runners can add complexity and cost to molds and require additional maintenance. Due to continuous improvement in the hot runner design a robust molding process is possible even with traditionally more thermally sensitive thermoplastic resins.
