Tree bark presents innovative non-petroleum PU foam
By Jane Denny, Urethanes Technology International
Posted 12 December 2013
A project to develop a fully bio-based tannin foam as a substitute to petroleum-based foams won an innovation award at the Association Foamed Plastics and Polyurethanes’ (FSK) annual conference.
The BioFoamBark process, coordinated by Freiburg Material Research Center member Marie-Pierre Laborie, involves the extraction of tannins from the bark of softwood species found commonly in Europe.
Other components for the foam formulation, including glycerol and furfural or ...

5-Axis Waterjet Cutting of Foam
By Admin, 05/11/2013
With recent advances in control and motion technology, 5-axis CNC waterjet cutting (abrasive and pure water) has become a reality. Where the normal axis on a water jet are named X (back/forth), Y (left/right) and Z (up/down), a 5-axis system will add an additional A-axis (angle from perpendicular) and C-axis (rotation around the Z-axis).
5-Axis cutting is a relatively new advancement for those using waterjet technology. Although it opens up a lot of possibilities for waterjet owners, programming for 5-axis is much different than programming for 2- or 3-axis. Read more about programming for ...
