Injection Molding Handbook

This new book serves as an introductory textbook for students getting acquainted with injection molding. It presents a thorough, up-to-date view of injection molding processing equipment and techniques, with sufficient related fundamental information on chemistry, physics, material science, and process engineering.

This handbook was written to serve engineers, professionals and others involved with this important industry sector. It not only covers the injection molding machine and process, but also includes the topics that directly affect 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 various injection molding processes without loosing the practical flavor that governs the manuscript between its covers. The carefully chosen set of authors includes experts in the field, practitioners and researchers in both industry and academia.
