The skillful selection of materials
at ENGEL Austria

1. July 2020


Seminar content

Plastics are universal materials made to measure. Accordingly, the choice is almost limitless – and therefore confusing. In plain language, this means that the right material must be found based on the requirements of the plastic part to be designed. If this is taken to heart, the subsequent success of the project is within reach.

In this seminar, we will show you methods for accurate material selection. In addition to specialist knowledge of materials technology, we will teach you how to use various material databases, which will be an indispensable aid to you. Based on an exemplary list of requirements, you will have the opportunity to successfully select the material yourself with our support. If you have taken part in our seminar “The precise requirements profile”, you can of course use the requirements profile you created there.

Note: You can bring suitable documents (requirements list etc.) for a planned product from your company to work with in the workshop.
