A US company is proposing to change the way the world works for the first time by turning the way we build things around the rotational motion of a rotating mould.
The company called AZek has developed a flexible moulding concept that could revolutionise the way materials are produced and manufactured.
It’s called rotational mould-forming, and it’s used in a range of different industries including aerospace, pharmaceuticals and medical devices.
In this picture, the AZek Flexible Molding System (FMS) is seen in action in a vacuum chamber.
It has three rotational dimensions, which are perpendicular to each other and have an axial axis of 0 degrees.
The idea behind it is that you could use it to produce a lot of materials that are a lot softer and stronger than other materials.
But it’s the fourth dimension that could make the biggest difference, according to AZek’s CEO, Alex Zuk, in an interview with Business Insider.
You can imagine it as being a very soft material that’s much softer than steel, but the same material can be used to make a very strong material, which is why this is such a big breakthrough for us.
AZek also says it could revolutionize the way many types of products are made.
“The first generation of rotational-moulding systems, like the ones we are proposing, are a bit of a dinosaur,” Mr Zuk said.
“They are quite expensive and they are quite difficult to manufacture.”
They were also designed to make high-strength, high-density materials and they’re really expensive.
And we have another flexible mould which could be put in our vacuum cleaners. “
For example, we have a high-performance flexible mould for our vehicles, for our furniture,” he said.
“And we have another flexible mould which could be put in our vacuum cleaners.
And we have an open-air mould for medical devices, so we have this new kind of flexible mould-formation technology.”
We are also looking at this as a way of getting more flexibility into everyday products.
“A flexible mould can be turned into a solid by pushing air up and down the inside of it, Mr Zink said.
This allows air to move across the material as it rotates, creating a very solid form.
In an interview last month, Mr Pachter, AZek CEO, said that the company was already working on a new, larger mould, and was aiming to build a factory in the UK for production.”
Right now we are working on an assembly plant for our own products, which will make about 500,000 moulds a year,” Mr Pacher said.
The flexible mould will allow manufacturers to make more complex products with less of a waste of material.
It can also be used in medical devices to create materials for implants, and even for body armor to reduce weight.
AZecks products could also be turned to help make prosthetic limbs, he said, because it could be shaped and made into the shape of the individual limb.
It was only a couple of years ago that AZek launched a similar flexible mould, called AZ-3, to help design medical devices and a range for the body.
AZ-2 had to be discontinued because it was too heavy, and AZ-1 had to get pulled from the market because of a problem with its shape.”
It was very difficult to get the shape right,” Mr Szabo said.
“The moulds will be able to be used all over the world,” Mr Sze said.AZech has also set up a team of scientists at its manufacturing facility in Pomerania, New York, to continue working on the research and development.”
You could use this new mould for all the other types of mould-forms we are developing,” he explained.AZek has also developed a new manufacturing process for its flexible moulds, which means that the moulds could be made at a factory or at home, and then the product would be sent to customers.AZecks flexible mould could also potentially help the environment, because AZek would not have to worry about making it as heavy as traditional moulds.
“The moulds will be able to be used all over the world,” Mr Sze said.AZech has also set up a team of scientists at its manufacturing facility in Pomerania, New York, to continue working on the research and development.
Mr Szabo is also a former student of the Harvard Business School, and is looking to join the research team in the future.
“There is a lot more that we want to learn about,” he added.AZeks first flexible mould was unveiled at the MIT Technology Review 2017.
The company had hoped to produce thousands of flexible molds in a single year.
