IMPROVING THE DESIGN OF PLASTIC ANCHORS FOR POLYSTYRENE
The paper presents the redesign process of the plastic anchor used for polystyrene walls. This process is based on the information obtained within a focus group and an extended analysis of the products available on the Romanian market. After the redesign process was completed the design process of the mould required to produce the plastic anchor has been developed and analysed. The redesign anchor obtained using this mould has been validated using dimensional measurements and visual inspection.
Key words: redesign, polystyrene, plastic anchor, mould design
