This book offers a vision and structure to synergize all the engineering disciplines that converge in the mold design process. Topics are presented in a top-down manner, from introductory definitions and the big picture to layout and detailed design of molds. This book provides pragmatic analysis with worked examples that can be adapted to real-world mold design applications. It helps students and practitioners to understand the inner workings of injection molds and encourage them to think outside the box in developing innovative and highly functional mold designs. Contents: Plastic Part Design. Mold Cost Estimation. Mold Layout Design. Cavity Filling Analysis and Design. Feed System Design. Gating Design. Venting. Cooling System Design. Shrinkage and Warpage. Ejection System Design. Structural System Design. Mold Technologies.
