This completely revised and updated second 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. Material flow is a critical parameter in moulding and there are sections covering rheology and viscosity. High temperature is also discussed as it can lead to poor quality mouldings due to material degradation.

The text is supported by 74 tables, many of which list key properties and processing parameters, and 233 figures; there are also many photographs of machinery and mouldings to illustrate key points. Troubleshooting flow charts are also included to indicate what should be changed to resolve common problems.

Injection moulding in the Western World is becoming increasingly competitive as the manufacturing base for many plastic materials has moved to the East. Thus, Western manufacturers have moved into more technically difficult products and mouldings to provide enhanced added value and maintain market share. Technology is becoming more critical, together with innovation and quality control. There is a chapter on advanced processing in injection moulding covering multimaterial and assisted moulding technologies. This guide will help develop good technical skills and appropriate processing techniques for the range of plastics and products in the marketplace.

Every injection moulder will find useful information in this text, in addition, this book will be of use to experts looking to fill gaps in their knowledge base as well as those new to the industry.

ARBURG has been manufacturing injection moulding machines since 1954 and is one of the major global players. The company prides itself on the support offered to clients, which is exemplified in its training courses. This book is based on some of the training material and hence is based on years of experience.
