Overview

This comprehensive and authoritative handbook provides a window into what it takes to be an effective and efficient troubleshooter.

The Handbook of Troubleshooting Plastics Processes: A Practical Guide provides a framework for understanding how to characterize plastic manufacturing processes for use in troubleshooting problems. The technical level is for process engineers and production personnel. The 21 chapters are authored by well-known and experienced industry engineers who have specialized knowledge about the processes covered in this practical guide.

The book is divided into three parts: Part One introduces the philosophy of troubleshooting, the economics and management of troubleshooting, and outlines how to use statistics for process characterization and troubleshooting. Part Two deals with plastics processes that use extrusion. Part Three deals with plastics processes that do not use extruders and has a special chapter on static.

Specifically, the Handbook of Troubleshooting Plastics Processes provides:

  • An economic rationale for establishing an effective troubleshooting culture
  • A primer on statists and static electricity
  • 17 process descriptions and case studies to help understand the plastic process anatomy and corrective methodology for troubleshooting plastics processes
  • Case studies to illuminate the process descriptions

The Handbook of Troubleshooting Plastics Processes provides a framework for process engineers, as well as technical service and production personnel in companies worldwide that manufacture plastics products and parts.

From the Preface:

"In every chapter, the process is described and the most common problems are discussed along with the root causes and potential technical solutions. Numerous case studies are provided that illustrate the troubleshooting process."
—Mark A. Spalding, The Dow Chemical Company
