When GE Plastics entered the multi-process multi-material arena with the construction and installation of Alpha I in its Pittsfield, Mass. headquarters, it recognized that if plastics are to continue to provide revolutionary products, the industry must expand its thinking beyond current single process applications. Multi-process parts must be developed to demonstrate to the automotive industry a new generation of applications.
The purpose of this paper is twofold: to explain the value of multi-process multi-material technology and to present an engineering analysis of the system which addresses design and processing questions.
