Hello partners, I have a topic that would like your expertise support. I work on a composites company on which we cure some of the parts using autoclave pressure, the process specification does not mentions anything about bag leak requirements, the only the specification calls for is a pressure of 20 to 40 psi, the part obtained a 40psi thru the entire cure cycle, but presented a possitive pressure under the bag (Baqg Leak) of 10psi, that means that the pressure recieved during the cure cycle remained at 30psi at least thats what I believed it happen since we applied 40psi and the part presented a leak of 10psi thru the cycle, that means the 30psi that remained applied to the part complies with Specification requirements of 20 to 40psi.
Am I interpreting the correct way or theres something I'm not considering that I should have?
Thanks a lot for your kind support!!

Lidar has been around for quite some time, but to date, it’s been custom—and expensive. Right now, there isn’t a clear-cut solution that’s suitable for all applications, such as lidar in autonomous vehicles. As they explore options, optical and mechanical engineers are forced to make choices and tradeoffs during the design process. Download Now
