This book highlights the importance of quality control for injection molding ? the most commonly used plastics manufacturing method. It provides the guidance and information to apply quality assurance methods so that plastic parts are produced ?right the first time? and through all manufacturing operations. The book details ways to improve plastics part design and quality, processability, and total manufacturing, and offers detailed information on machinery and equipment. It also updates the first edition with essential information on Six Sigma, ISO 9000, and TS 16949; computer-guided process control techniques; and lean manufacturing methods.
Plastic product design relies on the same formulas and procedures used for the design of metal, yet plastics are unique building materials that require more in-depth knowledge to produce acceptable results. Plastic product designers must address specific quality control concerns in order to produce quality products at acceptable costs. Covering the many variables that impact the success of a plastics manufacturing program, Industrial Design of Plastics Products provides a complete resource for the efficient design and production of plastics. Industrial Design of Plastics Products lists all steps necessary for effectively designing a plastic product for any industry. Physical properties and agency codes are listed, as well as full checklists for all areas of product design, contract, material selection, assembly techniques, manufacture, tooling, decoration, and shipping. The text also offers a list of examples with corresponding case studies to illustrate key concepts. Other features of this comprehensive volume include: An easy-to-understand list of requirements for establishing a manufacturing program A discussion of how material properties should be analyzed to achieve a product with the correct properties A full set of design equations, including examples of how they should be used and considered when designing a plastic product Successful plastic product design involves using the design team method to determine which material, mold, and process is best to manufacture a product. Industrial Design of Plastics Products provides a more detailed treatment in the basics of the subject than any other available resource, proving invaluable to design, chemical, and electrical engineers; materials scientists; and plastics manufacturers.
