Overview

With this book as your guide, you'll learn to take full advantage of microcellular injection molding technology to improve product design, increase processing efficiency, and reduce product costs. Moreover, it will show you how to use less materials and energy in order to help conserve natural resources and protect the environment.

Author Jingyi Xu is a world-renowned expert in microcellular injection molding who helped pioneer this novel process in the 1980s. He has reviewed all the relevant literature, examining historical developments, fundamental principles, materials, design guidelines, processes, equipment designs, and models. Xu bridges the gap between process fundamentals and real-world applications in science and industry, providing comprehensive coverage in an easy-to-understand, easy-to-apply format. Highlights of this coverage include:

Experimental rheology and pressure-volume-temperature data for different gas materials under actual injection molding conditions

New mathematical models

Micrographs of rheological and thermodynamic phenomena

Morphologies of microcellular foam made by injection molding

Cost savings of microcellular injection molding

In addition, Xu proposes two stages of processing for microcellular injection molding as well as an effective systematic analysis methodology for process optimization, providing critical guidelines for quality and quantity analyses for processing and equipment design.

From students to professional engineers and processors, Microcellular Injection Molding will help readers better understand, implement, and fully benefit from this novel and promising technology.
