The June 2019 issue of Industrial Technology magazine contains a great piece from our Technical Manager, Kevin Cook, entitled Keeping the Finishing Line in Sight.
The Sydney Opera House turned out to be one of the most disastrous construction projects in history, running vastly over time and budget. Designed by Danish architect Jorn Utzon, the construction of Australia’s most iconic monument was originally scheduled to take four years, with a budget of AUS $7 million. However, due to poor planning, it ended up taking 14 years to complete, costing a grand total of AUS $102 million. If your project involves the bonding of parts, Kevin gives his top tips for ensuring a prototype can be turned into an efficiently manufactured product. Forgetting to consider the adhesive from the offset may not have as drastic consequences as poor planning did for Jorn Utzon and his design of the Sydney Opera House, but following these steps will help ensure that your project runs as smoothly as possible.
