Engineers read plenty of trade journals and industry magazines. So when they hear the term “technical papers,” it’s only natural to wonder if the publications are reports, white papers, or magazine articles. Not all technical papers are meant to be read, however. In fact, some are designed for electrical insulation instead of professional education. These technical papers support precision die cutting and impart specialized properties for applications such as electrical insulation.
You’re an engineer and you’re out of time. If you’re going to meet your deadline, the die cutter needs your part design now. Did you specify the right material? Did you specify the best material? Those questions may sound similar, but they’re not the same. There could be several different materials that meet your application’s requirements. Each is “right” in the sense that it would work, but some choices are better than others in terms of performance and cost.
