Description

Examining processes that affect more than 70 percent of consumer products ranging from computers to medical devices and automobiles, this reference presents the latest research in automated plastic injection and die casting mold design and manufacture. It analyzes many industrial examples and methodologies while focusing on the algorithms, implementation procedures, and system architectures that will lead to a fully automated or semi-automated computer-aided injection mold design system (CADIMDS). This invaluable guide in this challenging area of precision engineering summarizes key findings and innovations from the authors' many years of research on intelligent mold design technologies.
