This revised 3rd edition details the factors involved in the injection moulding process, from material properties and selection to troubleshooting faults, and includes the equipment types currently in use and machine settings for different types of plastics. Since material flow is critical in moulding, the book covers rheology and viscosity. High temperature is also discussed as it can lead to poor quality mouldings due to material degradation.
Many tables summarize key properties and processing parameters.
Photographs of machinery and mouldings illustrate key points.
Includies troubleshooting flowcharts to resolve common problems.
