Plastic Injection Mold Production

The Plastic Injection Mold Production segment explores the use of computer simulation to develop molds, mold production methods, mold prototyping techniques, and mold maintenance & repair.

Injection Mold Types

The Injection Mold Types segment showcases in detail the cold-runner two-plate mold, the cold-runner three-plate mold, the hot-runner mold, and the insulated runner mold.

Plastic Injection Molds Introduction

The injection mold is an extremely important element of any plastic injection molding operation. Molds determine the shape of the part, vent trapped air or gases during injection, act as heat exchangers to solidify the molten plastic, and eject the cooled parts. This Plastic Injection Molds program highlights the primary injection mold components, including the mold base, cavity and cores, runner system, cooling system, and ejector system. This program also features segments on injection mold types, the use of computer simulation, mold prototyping techniques, and mold maintenance & repair.

Plastic Extrusion

The Plastic Extrusion segment explores components of the screw extrusion machine and common feedstock and materials. The two most prevalent plastic extrusion processes, profile extrusion and blown film extrusion, are also extensively detailed.

Extrusion Processes

Extrusion is the deformation of either metal or plastic forced under pressure through a die to create a shape. This unique Extrusion Processes program is an introduction to both plastic extrusion and metal extrusion processes. The Metal Extrusion segment looks at hot extrusion, press components, lubrication, force capacity, and the metals that are typically hot extruded. Both warm and cold extrusion processes are featured too, including indirect extrusion, combination extrusion, and impact extrusion. The Plastic Extrusion segment explores components of the screw extrusion machine and common feedstock and materials. The two most prevalent plastic extrusion processes, profile extrusion and blown film extrusion, are also extensively detailed.

Fastening and Assembly

This Fastening and Assembly program focuses on the primary fasteners and assembly processes used and includes sections on mechanical fastening, adhesive bonding, and automated assembly.

Forging

This Forging program begins by outlining forging's function in refining the metallurgical microstructure of wrought mills forms, and it's use in generating parts to near-net shape from these forms. Featured are segments on the various types of forging processes, including: Open-Die Forging, Impression-Die Forging, and Related Forging Processes.

Casting

This program includes information on pattern and core production methods, and covers an array of casting processes, arranging them into three major categories: Expendable Mold/Reusable Pattern Processes, Expendable Mold/Expendable Pattern Processes, and Permanent Mold/No Pattern Processes.
