This practice-oriented book describes the construction of an injection mould from the ground up.
- Explanation of the particular types of moulds, components, and technical terms
- Procedure for design
- Techniques, tips, and tricks for the construction of an injection mould
- Advantages and disadvantages of various problem-solving approaches
Using as a basis a plastic part (container with cover) that was specially designed for this book, the necessary knowledge for practical implementation is developed through easily understandable text and many descriptive pictures and diagrams. Step by step, the plastic part is modified and extended. The technologies and implementations on the injection mould that are required to achieve this are described by engineering drawings. Maintenance and repair, as well as the essential production techniques, are also discussed.
