  • How 3D scanning helped Australia's kayak team
    Olympic sport keeps pushing athletes to find new and nuanced ways to condition their bodies. The same is true with their equipment. Engineers continually look for new refinements that propel the competition to a new level.
  • 2012 Olympics: How 3D Scanning is helping Australia's Kayak team
    Olympic sport keeps pushing athletes to find new and nuanced ways to condition their bodies. The same is true with their equipment. Engineers continually look for new refinements that propel the competition to a new level.
  • CAM Gets the Most Out of a Five-Axis Router
    Our company provides fast turnaround on difficult projects that involve design, engineering, prototyping, and fabrication. A SolidWorks model of a prototype sea-kayak imports into Mastercam X2 and quickly opens. The wire-frame view allows fast model manipulation. Mastercam lets users break up
  • Spinning out leaner, meaner kayaks
    An advanced TekTuff SPA polyethylene (PE) lets Heritage Kayaks, Bristol, R.I., not only slim down its rotationally molded Featherlite kayaks without loss of structural toughness but also permits molding more boats per shift. Rotational-molding operators at Heritage Kayaks remove a onepiece seamless
  • Reinforced Plastics Make Metals Look Weak
    More structural applications use continuous-fiber-reinforced thermoplastics thanks to easily processed materials and a better understanding of molding technology. Waterstick Inc., Port Perry, Ontario, uses an Applied Fiber Systems CFRTP fabric called RF6 to make an eight-dihedral-faced kayak paddle
  • Gas-Assist Molding: Not just for hollow parts
    . Gas-assist along with mold temperature tweaking eliminated sink marks along the entire length of the part and solved blushing problems around the sprue in the middle of the front panel. Kayak paddles for Voyageur, a Div. of Confluence Holding Corp., Trinity, N.C., had inconsistent dimensions and problems
