Last 26 August, a group of Suzhou Distric Government headed by Major Mr. Qi Zhenyu visited CMP Spain , Technical Center and Manufacturing Plant. CMP Chinese manufacturing plant is located in this distric. It was a very successful visit and both sides confirmed to be very interested in mutual collaboration in working for increasing CMP presence in this area.
Our Colleague Julio Fernandez Ceniceros Dr. Engineer – Finite Element Analysis - attended on March 2017 the courses of Endurica LLC in order to upgrade our current methods with the latest advances in Durability Prediction of Rubber Components.
The courses “Characterizing Elastomer Fatigue Behaviour for Analysis and Engineering” and “Theory and Application of Rubber Fatigue Analysis with Endurica CL” took place at Leartiker facilities (Markina-Xemein, Spain). Theoretical analysis and lectures were combined with live lab demos and hands-on exercises focused on processing and interpreting experimental measurements of fatigue behavior.
The instructor, Dr. William Mars, is the founder and CEO of Endurica and an internationally acclaimed authority on the topic of damage mechanics in elastomers. He brings to his lectures two decades of experience developing product testing and simulation methods in the rubber industry, as well as experience teaching graduate courses as an adjunct professor at the University of Toledo (Ohio, USA).
The knowledge acquired through these courses will enhance current methods for the estimation of fatigue life in rubber components since the first stages of design. These cutting-edge methodologies will shorten design loops offering our customers optimized rubber components.
