Physical Foam Injection Molding

Fundamentals for Industrial Lightweight Design

Beschreibung
Physical Foam Injection Molding
More than half of all injection molded plastic parts can be produced more cost-effectively and with better tolerances using foam injection molding compared to traditional compact injection molding.

For the part designer, the focus is on the functionality of the molded part, not on the plastic-compatible design, which is precisely what compact injection molding requires. This book describes the necessary fundamentals of physical foam injection molding, clearly illustrated by means of detailed, industrially proven examples to show the technology’s potential. Machine and mold technology are also explained in detail, and polymers suitable for the process are discussed. The focus is always on the question of whether the potential of physical foam injection molding has already been exhausted or whether it is emerging as a second standard process alongside compact injection molding.

The experienced authors make it possible to look beyond the end of one’s nose. The reader can see which plastic parts can be converted from compact to foam injection molding, and is encouraged to rethink the part design. With this book, specialists are able to examine an application for their own company and analyze it with regard to its economic implementation. However, the book also shows the clear limitations of this technology.

Content:

Dr. Hartmut Traut holds a degree in industrial management and a doctorate in business administration. After selling his company Centro Kontrollsysteme, he worked for 8 years as Sales and Marketing Director at Thermo Detection, responsible for Europe, Middle East, and Africa. He then served as Trexel's Business Director for Europe for 19 years. In recognition of his many years of service and his role in the development of Trexel, the company has awarded him the honorary title of "Vice President Emeritus".
Dr.-Ing. Hans Wobbe studied mechanical engineering at the Technical University of Braunschweig and received his doctorate in 1984. After several management positions in plastics technology, including in compounding and injection molding, the combination of both technologies was developed under his responsibility at KraussMaffei. As Managing Director at Engel in Austria, his focus was on electric injection molding machines. As an independent management consultant, he has been active for many years at the Yizumi company in China as a board member responsible for strategy, among other roles.
