  • Dear Members,

    In an effort to get more members to attend the gatherings I would like to mention some new ideas. As far as the PSU Alumni, we could consider adding a section of the newsletter for PSU alumni which would list the number of alumni we have in our database, the e-mail address to send new contacts to and maybe have one alumni a month list where they work and what position they hold. As far as companies placing ads, we could have a company fair where people come to represent their companies, tell us what they do andhow they can help others. The final idea is the most fun, have a party at a certain bar where everyone can informally meet and share their knowledge of the plastics industry. Please let us know if you like these ideas or any others you have.

    Thanks,

    Paul SteinkeSPE PresidentSPE KC913-907-0948

    Society of Plastics Engineers Section 32Brief overview of Sept. Gathering and Speaker

    The SPE KC chapter held a gathering at Zarda’s BBQ where Speaker Joe Blubaugh spoke about 3D print-ing. Joe works for a Stratasys, a leading provider of 3D printing solution for more than 25 years. Several pro-fessional and student members showed up to Zarda for the presentation. The presentation focused on three facets; Stratasys’ current 3D plastic technologies (polyjet and FDM), materials utilized by these systems, and choosing the applicable solution for the job. Fused Deposition Mod-eling, FDM, takes a plastic filament melts it and then extrudes onto a tray to build a part layer by layer from the bottom up. FDM is the only professional 3D print-ing technology that uses production-grade thermo-plastics, so parts are unrivaled in mechanical, thermal and chemical strength. This technology is a powerful Statasys-patented additive manufacturing method. Polyjet works like an inkjet printer, but instead of drop-ping ink it drops little drops of liquid plastic. The plastic droplet dispenser is followed by UV head which cures the plastic, the head moves back over that and slowly builds up the geometry of the model. With 16-mciron layer resolution and accuracy as high as .1mm, it can produce then walls and complex geometries using the widest range of materials1. The concepts of 3D printing is to take a idea in your head, create a working model that you can hold in your hand, and put it out to manufacturing quickly with less time. It’s a way to create physical objects directly form a digital file. Next month’s speaker will be Pat Bishof special project manager, Hunter Associates Lab. He will talk on color appearance in the plastics industry. 1. http://www.stratasys.com/3d-printers

    School is off to a fast start again at Pittsburg State Univer-sity. At the end of the spring semester the chapter included 31 members, and there’s a good chance we can add to that in the coming year. Our goals for the year are to hold more meetings outside of the school setting, to influence new ideas and have some fun, and to fundraise by selling poker chips, gorilla bottles, and through the annual golf tourna-ment. Overall, Pittsburg State SPE members are excited to be back and are ready to make this another successful year.
