Apply Injection Moulding Tool Design

Polymer materials are widely used in our daily lives. With advancement of materials and process technologies during the recent years, more applications have been developed for polymer materials in high precision and fast growing industries such as automotive, aerospace, photonic, computer and medical devices. However, to make good use of the advanced polymer materials, it is essential to have a good understanding of polymeric material properties and the process technologies. The objective of this course is to provide the participants with essential practical skills and a good understanding of polymeric materials processing properties and the injection moulding and mould design technologies. The course comprises injection mould design principles, applications of CAE techniques in mould design and injection moulding processes. Industrial mould design application examples will be introduced and studied through case studies. On completion of this module, participants will be equipped with the knowledge and application skills to employ the injection moulding tool design technology for industrial applications.
