This practical introductory guide to injection molding simulation is aimed at both students and practicing engineers. It offers ways to innovate and improve part design and molding processes, which are essential for efficient manufacturing.
This user-friendly book uses a case-study-based approach that is enhanced by many illustrations in full color. The book is divided into three parts. Part I introduces the fundamentals of injection molding, focusing on the factors governing molding quality and how molding simulation methodology is developed. Part II introduces CAE verification of design, a valuable tool for both part and mold designers. Part III introduces research and development in innovative molding, illustrating how CAE is applied to advanced molding techniques.
