Injection Molding: Process, Design, and Applications


Editor: Phoebe H. Kauffer

Series: Materials Science and Technologies

Injection molding is one of the most versatile and important manufacturing processes, capable of mass-producing complicated plastic parts in a variety of complex shapes with high dimensional precision. It is a major processing technique for converting thermoplastic and thermosetting materials with the aid of heat and pressure into complicated parts, consuming worldwide approximately 32% of all plastics. This book presents current research data in the study of injection molding from across the globe, including an overview of injection molding as a manufacturing technique for pharmaceutical applications; melt/solid weldline in over injection molding; metal injection molding of Co for biomedical applications; and the application of ultrasonic technology in the injection molding process.
