Hanser Fachbuch to publish book dedicated to micro injection moulding

May 28, 2019

Hanser Fachbuch is set to publish ‘Micro Injection Molding’, a book dedicated exclusively to micro injection moulding, including MicroPIM, and overcoming the challenges of managing and processing materials at ultra-small scales.

The 408-page book reportedly provides engineers, project managers, researchers, consultants and other professionals involved in precision micro-manufacturing with a comprehensive, up-to-date and detailed treatment of the main topics related to micro-moulding, from material and process technology to tooling, to key-enabling technologies, and multi-material process variations.

Guido Tosello, the book’s author, is an Associate Professor at the Technical University of Denmark’s Department of Mechanical Engineering. His principal research interests include the analysis, characterisation, monitoring, control, optimisation and simulation of precision moulding processes at micro/nano scales.

Tosello divides ‘Micro Injection Molding’ into four sections, with the aim of delivering a full analysis of the micro injection moulding industry. Part one covers ‘Polymer Materials and Process Micro Technology’ – micro injection moulding machine technology; micro-moulding process monitoring and control; polymer materials structure and properties in micro injection moulding parts; and surface replication in micro injection moulding. Part two explores ‘Tooling Technologies for Micro Mold Making’ – micro-machining technologies for micro injection mould making; ultra-precision machining technologies for micro injection mould making; and the surface treatment of mould tools in micro injection moulding.

Part three looks at ‘Micro Molding Key-Enabling Technologies’ – vacuum-assisted micro injection moulding; modelling and simulation of micro injection moulding; metrological quality assurance in micro injection moulding; Additive Manufacturing for micro-tooling and micro-part rapid prototyping. Part four covers ‘Multimaterial Micro Processing’ – micro Powder Injection Moulding and multi-material micro injection.
