Thermoforming is one of the most versatile and economical processes to produce polymer products, and the key drawback is difficult to control the thickness of final products. The temperature distribution after the preheating process affects to the thickness distribution of final products. The cycle time must be decreased in order to improve the competitive power of the products, but the preheating time can not be decreased freely because of the key drawback. In this study, a new method for decreasing the preh…
scite is a Brooklyn-based startup that helps researchers better discover and evaluate scientific articles through Smart Citations–citations that display the context of the citation and describe whether the article provides supporting or contrasting evidence. scite is used by researchers from dozens of countries and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute on Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
