Selecting The Materials That Meet Your Needs
Selecting the right materials for your device or widget can be critical to its operation, and its success in the market, or with your client. Materials impact on almost every property of a device and its components – weight, feel/texture, durability, strength, wear resistance, appearance, noise, even smell – and cost/affordability. Some materials offer special properties that can be beneficial, or even mandatory in a design, such a flexibility, or resistance to cold and impact. Incorporating materials identification, selection, and fabrication into your device’s development and design is a big step toward success!
