Practical Guide to Rotational Moulding Second Edition Excerpt :

Rotational moulding (also called rotomoulding or rotocasting), is a low pressure, high temperature manufacturing process that offers a very competitive alternative to blow moulding, thermoforming and injection moulding for the manufacture of hollow plastic parts. It offers designers the chance to produce relatively stress-free articles, with uniform wall thickness and potentially complex shapes. This second edition of the very popular Practical Guide to Rotational Moulding describes the basic aspects of the process and the latest state-of-the-art developments in the industry. It is completely revised and is extensively illustrated.This guide will be of interest both to students of polymer processing and those who work with rotational moulding equipment.

Rotational Moulding of Plastics Excerpt :

Rotational moulding has been available as a processing method for hollow plastic products for more than forty years, but for a long time it was regarded as a slow method limited to only a few plastics. Within the last ten to fifteen years there has been a dramatic change. Engineers and designers recognise the scope that rotational moulding offers for the production of relatively inexpensive, complex shapes with low levels of moulded-in stress. Materials suppliers are continually developing new grades of plastics as well as a wider selection of materials suited to the process. In addition, machinery suppliers are producing more sophisticated moulding equipment so that the moulder now has control over the process that was previously thought impossible. For its second edition, this book has been updated and expanded by the authors, who are leaders in their specialties within the field of rotational moulding. It continues to provide an introduction to the subject, as well as giving comprehensive coverage of the state-of-the-art. Two new chapters have been added. These cover the important areas of pin-hole removal from rotomoulded products and the rotational moulding of liquid polymers. In both cases the new material is the result of extensive research, and the results will be of considerable practical interest to moulders. The book will surely be welcomed again by moulders, materials and equipment suppliers, engineers and designers, and by lecturers looking for up-to-date information to include in their courses.

Basics of Troubleshooting in Plastics Processing Excerpt :

The Basics of Troubleshooting in Plastics Processing is a condensed practical guide that gives the reader a broad introduction to properties of thermoplastics plastics, additives, the major processes (extrusion, injection molding, rotational molding, blow molding, and thermoforming), as well as troubleshooting. The main goal is to provide the plastics processor with an improved understanding of the basics by explaining the science behind the technology. Machine details are minimized as the emphasis is on processing problems and the defects in an effort to focus on basic root causes to problems and how to solve them. The book’s framework is troubleshooting in plastics processing because of the importance it has to the eventual production of high quality end products. Each chapter contains both practical and detailed technical information. This basic guide provides state-of-the-art information on: Processing problems and defects during manufacturing Plastics materials, their properties and characterization The plastics processing techniques Plastics additives Troubleshooting of the 5 main plastics processes References for further reading

Plastic Conversion Processes Excerpt :

The explosion of plastic material development continues to generate a proliferation of conversion processes and variants of these methods. Unfortunately, most books on plastics conversion focus on a single process, such as injection molding, limiting their usefulness to readers without prior knowledge of the field. Few, if any, single-source texts adequately describe and compare each of the plastic conversion processes together. Plastic Conversion Processes: A Concise and Applied Guide addresses that need. It provides a basic overview of each of the seven major conversion processes, which account for the creation of more than 97 percent of all plastics products today. This detailed guide assembles and integrates the wealth of information scattered throughout various literature, to provide a basic yet complete illustration of plastic conversion processes. Learn Methods to Compare, Evaluate, and Select the Best Process for Your Product This book is unique in that it employs an all-encompassing approach, offering more than a mere overview of basic theory and application related to each major process. Chapters begin with a process-attribute table to serve as a quick guide, and then briefly describe a particular conversion process. To ensure comprehensive understanding of each method and how it works, sections include a short history and detailed explanation of the particular equipment, tooling, and materials used, as well as general piece part design guidelines and case studies gleaned from real-life experience. There is a plastic term for every letter of the alphabet, making it one of the most complex fields in science. A "quick reference" section at the end of the book includes an exhaustive collection of more than 350 terms, definitions, acronyms, and a key process characteristics comparison chart. Supplemented with photos, diagrams, and illustrations that bolster understanding of the material, this book characterizes the plastics industry in a way that makes it less

ARBURG Practical Guide to Injection Moulding Excerpt :

This book details the factors involved in the injection moulding process, from material properties and selection to troubleshooting faults, and includes the equipment types currently in use and machine settings for different types of plastics. Material flow is a critical parameter in moulding and there are sections covering rheology and viscosity. High temperature is also discussed as it can lead to poor quality mouldings due to material degradation.The text is supported by 74 tables, many of which list key properties and processing parameters, and 233 figures; there are also many photographs of machinery and mouldings to illustrate key points. Troubleshooting flow charts are also included to indicate what should be changed to resolve common problems.Injection moulding in the Western World is becoming increasingly competitive as the manufacturing base for many plastic materials has moved to the East. Thus, Western manufacturers have moved into more technically difficult products and mouldings to provide enhanced added value and maintain market share. Technology is becoming more critical, together with innovation and quality control. There is a chapter on advanced processing in injection moulding covering multimaterial and assisted moulding technologies. This guide will help develop good technical skills and appropriate processing techniques for the range of plastics and products in the marketplace.Every injection moulder will find useful information in this text, in addition, this book will be of use to experts looking to fill gaps in their knowledge base as well as those new to the industry.ARBURG has been manufacturing injection moulding machines since 1954 and is one of the major global players. The company prides itself on the support offered to clients, which is exemplified in its training courses.
