Abstract
The authors describe herein the development of a model for an injection-molded protective glove prototype. The technique uses computer-aided design and manufacturing (CAD/CAM) exclusively. The geometric model was constructed in the computer memory corresponding to the best known dimensions for a "regular-large" sized-hand. Special complex surfaces were used to make the model ambidextrous. The machining was carried out on a CNC mill (a Matsuura 1000V with a Fanuc controler) programmed directly from the computer model. Trials were completed first with wax models before the final part was cut from aluminum. Two halves were made and fitted together about a mid-plane to complete the model.
