About this demo
Snap-fits are everywhere you look. Remember your indestructible Nokia 1200? It made use of a very well-designed snap mechanism to ensure the device’s safety through repeated falls. Or the Lego that you loved playing with as a child? — a snap-fit mechanism. The belt buckles? Food cans? Be it camera covers, production of cars, a simple battery case for a remote, or even a huge rocket, everywhere we look we are surrounded by them.
The question in everyone’s mind now is, why does this omnipresent mechanism break so easily in some cases, and lasts decades in others? How can you, as a designer or engineer, ensure customer happiness by using better snap-fits? The answer lies in FEA. This 3rd of August, we discuss how to make better snap-fit designs.
By joining the demo, you will learn:
- How Finite Element Analysis can help you design better snap-fit systems faster
- How to ensure that the least possible material is used, and the longest life-cycle achieved
- What happens behind the scenes for ensuring a snap-fit will last forever or break right after the warranty runs out
