3 Credit Hours2 Lecture Hours1 Laboratory Hours
This course provides an understanding of the injection molding process. The student will learn about the injection molding process, including the components of the injection molding process, injection molding equipment, mold tooling, process control systems, basic part design principles, plastic materials, secondary processes and novel injection molding processes.
(A requirement that must be completed before taking this course.)
Upon successful completion of the course, the student should be able to:
- Distinguish the major components of the injection molding process.
- Investigate conveying and drying methods used for plastic materials that are to be processed into injection molded parts.
- Explain the elements of the melting process in injection molding.
- Identify the components of the injection mold tooling and the parameters for designing an injection mold.
- Relate the melt flow and physical properties of plastic materials with the manufacturing of acceptable injection molded parts.
- Explain the different process control systems used in the injection molding process.
- Apply basic part design principles for the manufacturing of injection molded parts that meet end user requirements.
- Explore other (auxiliary) equipment used in the injection molding process including secondary/decorating process methods.
- Correct typical problems in the injection molding process by applying standard troubleshooting methods.
- Describe advanced and novel processes in injection molding.
- Adhere to plastics injection molding industry safety guidelines.
