CFD or Computational Fluid Dynamics modelling has been around since the early sixties when the first work using computers to model fluid flow was performed at Los Alamos National Labs, by the T3 group.
The group published a paper modelling two dimensional swirling flows around an object in July 1963. Four years later researchers at Douglas Aircraft published a paper on a three dimensional model based on an aircraft fuselage.
In many industries there is a requirement to accurately, reliably and simply measure the amount of a viscous or liquid component in the presence of other solid materials. The bench top NMR MQC analyser addresses a range of industry-specific Quality Control requirements using proven, reliable and simple-to-use technology that avoids the need to separate the different phases.
As an approved supplier, Rapitypes have delivered many prototype components in aluminum alloys, steel and plastics to Triumph Motorcycles. The exhaust collectors featured here were created from the data provided by the engine development team and feature high quality investment casting techniques.
Rapitypes create the wax masters on their Thermojet layer build RP machine prior to production of the ceramic shells and castings. In this case the accuracy of the cast surfaces meant that no post machining was required, although this service is included with other parts such as engine and gearbox housings and cycle parts.
Rapitypes Ltd, one of the UK’s leading manufacturers of technical polyurethane RIM production components for the automotive and medical sectors, has experienced a significant growth in business for 2010/11.
The increase has led to a substantial investment in new dispensing systems, like the Cannon B15 illustrated and the expansion of the RIM facility from 15,000 sq ft to 20,000 sq ft. This includes a larger warehouse facility for customer stock components (JIT) and extended trimming, shot blasting and clean room spray-paint finishing areas.
