The nylon material for the carcass is much more stretchable and at the same time more dimensionally stable than other materials.
The dimensionally stable polyurethane board is easy to process and changes can be easily made.
The result is a compact machine that reportedly uses up to 95% less energy/lb of material processed and can typically achieve a dimensionally stable product within 20 min of being turned on, thereby minimizing the expense of startup and product changeover.
Sapphire-hard ceramic internal components are both chemically inert and dimensionally stable, resulting in a pump that will transfer fluid, in micro-volume amounts, at a precision of 0.5% or better for millions of maintenance free cycles.
For instance, many of the telescope's mirrors are made from beryllium, an element that is lightweight, stiff, strong and also dimensionally stable around temperatures below 100 Kelvin.
Invented by Stratasys founder, Scott Crump, more than 20 years ago, FDM Technology works with production-grade thermoplastics to build strong, durable and dimensionally stable parts with the best accuracy and repeatability of any 3D printing technology.
An impression is a record, a negative replica of the mouth tissues taken at an unrestrained rest position or in various positions of displacement.1 In dentistry, the use of dimensionally stable impression materials and the development of accurate impressions are the first and foremost step towards the fabrication of a successful and well fitted prosthesis.2 The choice of an impression material for a particular situation depends on the treatment being provided, operator preference, and so on.3 Even with the introduction of more refined and more sophisticated rubber base impression materials, irreversible hydrocolloid impression materials have stood the test of time.
