This reference guide was originally prepared in 1990 as a convenient pocket sized resource for use in Injection Molding. This information is most useful by personnel who work in the injection molding field including press operators, technicians, engineers, designers, mold builders, etc.
There are many reference data tables regarding plastics data, statistical methods, engineering calculations and valuable training for personnel in the IM industry. The book includes basic part design, trig tables, calculations for thermal expansion, thermal exp coeffs, SHCS data, torque specs, shrink data, cooling time equation, mold debug guidelines, melt index data, resin density data, many tables of process guidelines, process development techniques, calculating heat load & water flow requirements, pipe data, conversion factors, transformer & motor current, PM & safety, basic statistics, equip selection guidelines and more.
Most books available on this subject are very informative, but require excessive reading time to capture the necessary information; this guide is designed to expedite learning and use thereof. This is accomplished via concise data tables, formulas, graphics as needed to convey the essential data and information.
