In mechanical design. Reinforcement rib is generally refer to rib plate or reinforcing rib. In the process of structural design, the overhanging surface of the structure may be too large, or the structure span may be too large. In this case, the loading of connecting surface of the structure itself is limited. Herewith ,to add a reinforcing rib on the common vertical plane of the two structures to increase the strength of the joint surfaces . Ribs are usually used to reinforce mechanical structures and bear a certain tensile stress
- The ribs would enhance the strength and rigidity of part without increasing its wall thickness , so as to save material consumption, reduce net weight and reduce cost accordingly .
- It can overcome the distortion of finished part that caused by uneven stress because of the difference wall thickness
- In some cases, the plastic reinforcing ribs can also improve the plastic material flow situation in the plastic injection forming procedure
