The injection molding industry has a new, up-to-date, comprehensive handbook. Serving engineers, professionals, and others involved in this important industry sector, the handbook thoroughly covers every detail of the machine and the process. This all-encompassing resource also includes the topics directly affecting the injection molding process, such as materials, process control, simulation, design, and troubleshooting.
The handbook presents a well-rounded overview of the underlying theory and physics that control the common injection molding process variation, without losing the practical hands-on presentation used throughout. This important book was written by a specifically chosen group of authors with a wide range of experience and perspective on the injection molding process - authors who are leading practitioners and researchers both in industry and academia.
