Computer Modeling for Injection Molding
Simulation, Optimization, and Control
A guide to optimizing the manufacture of high-quality plastic products
Injection molding is the most popular process for manufacturing plastic products, including automotive parts, household articles, consumer electronics, and several other everyday items. Rather than relying on costly trial-and-error methods, manufacturers are increasingly turning to sophisticated computer modeling in order to optimize the design and performance of new injection molding plastic products. Moreover, computer modeling enables them to design the most efficient and cost-effective processes to manufacture these products.
Computer Modeling for Injection Molding is a systematic and comprehensive book written by a team of leading experts that guide readers through the latest advances in the field. Following the authors' clear explanations, readers will discover a host of new computer modeling tools that enable them to design and manufacture high-quality injection molding products. The book is divided into four parts:
- Part One: Background
- Part Two: Simulation
- Part Three: Optimization
- Part Four: Process Control
Topics include some of the latest advances in technology and computing, such as parallel computing, the acceleration method, intelligent optimization methods, and learning control for injection molding. Throughout the book, the authors set forth problems that typically arise in computer modeling alongside easy-to-implement solutions. Case studies documenting successful applications of computer modeling for injection molding offer important lessons of what to do and what not to do.
Computer Modeling for Injection Molding provides students and researchers new to the field with all the basic information needed to get started. It also offers experienced plastics engineers the latest advances in the field needed to design, optimize, and manufacture high-quality plastic products as efficiently as possible.
