    B-stage processing is a term used for one-pot thermosetting formulations that can be partially cured or pre-dried, after being applied to a substrate and then cured under heat and pressure. B-staging has processing advantages ...
  • Analysis of roughness, force and vibration signals in ball-end milling processes 

    Álvarez Flórez, Jesús Andrés; Buj Corral, Irene; Vivancos Calvet, Joan (2015)
    Conference report
    Open Access
    In the present paper, roughness, force and vibration signals from ball-end milling processes are analysed. From the roughness signal actual feed value was obtained as expected. From the force and vibration signals both the ...
