PLASTICS FINISHING Post 116by Gautam Shah ➔ .
The basic purpose of finishing plastics is to remove the nominal imperfections such as scratches, dull spots, dents, protrusions, ridge marks at the junction of moulds, gate marks (entry points of pour). Many of these are avoidable by refined production methods. For finishing, primary techniques like grinding, filing, sanding, buffing, turning, tapping, sawing, etc. are used. Most post-production finishing processes are required for preparing or readying the item for subsequent manufacturing. These are, drilling, splitting, chopping, trimming, cutting, grinding, etc. Plastic products like granules, fibres, powders, liquids, etc. Go through several cycles of finishing and further manufacturing before a utilizable product is achieved. Some plastic entities need a micro size calibration to meet the tolerances’ requirements.

Rigid plastics, thermoplastics and thermosets can be machined by conventional processes such as drilling, sawing,…

A person individually can have expertise or keen interest in a specific field. The person, however joins an existing organization to contribute the specific know-how, or such individuals come together to explore it.

HUMAN BEHAVIOUR in SPACE  Course for Faculty of Design CEPT University Ahmedabad India > Jan 2015 offered by Gautam Shah Human behaviour is evident in responses related to: Body, Environment, Space and the Occupants. BODY: The human behaviour is seen through body-limb movements or postures, gestures, and as overt expressions in modes like speaking, writings, painting, etc as in expression and communication. . Physiological components of behaviour show up in survival, health, well being and comfort, spatial occupation with dimensional accommodation and fitments of the human-body, task functionality. Human behaviour sensed through Cognition, Psychological factors, Sensorial perception, Response mechanisms. ENVIRONMENT: Environmental responses are of becoming aware of a space. These permeate into a space depending on the spatial characteristics, such as the size, shape, sequencing, quality of barriers, etc. SPACE: Space is the setting where environment and cognition actualize concurrentl…
