Injection Molding Advanced Troubleshooting Guide Book Review:

This highly practical troubleshooting guide solves injection molding problems systematically and quickly. The rigorous but user-friendly approach employs the authors’ proven »STOP« methodology, considering molding process, mold, machine, and material (4M’s) as possible sources of part defects. Importantly, the interaction between tooling, processing, and material is emphasized, allowing successful resolution of difficult problems where »by-the-books« approaches fail. Starting from troubleshooting methodology and tools, there is a focused discussion of key areas impacting troubleshooting, in particular the 4M’s, followed by an in-depth troubleshooting guide for various molding defects, structured logically by type of problem / solution. Insightful case studies throughout show the strengths of the STOP method to get real processes to run smoothly and reliably, producing quality parts with optimal cycle time and cost. Drawing on a wealth of hands-on experience, this book serves as an ideal reference to be consulted at the machine, or as a learning and training manual, suitable for both beginners and experienced molders. With valuable information on robust process windows, cycle time evaluations, scrap savings, and runners / gates with no existing standard in the industry, no other book provides the unique insights found here. The 2nd edition is updated with new discussion and case studies on topics including additive manufactured inserts, unmelts, buildup, burns, cycle time, gloss variation, and read-through.

Unit Manufacturing Processes Book Review:

Manufacturing, reduced to its simplest form, involves the sequencing of product forms through a number of different processes. Each individual step, known as an unit manufacturing process, can be viewed as the fundamental building block of a nation's manufacturing capability. A committee of the National Research Council has prepared a report to help define national priorities for research in unit processes. It contains an organizing framework for unit process families, criteria for determining the criticality of a process or manufacturing technology, examples of research opportunities, and a prioritized list of enabling technologies that can lead to the manufacture of products of superior quality at competitive costs. The study was performed under the sponsorship of the National Science Foundation and the Defense Department's Manufacturing Technology Program.

Robust Plastic Product Design A Holistic Approach Book Review:

Tooling, molding, secondary operations, material selection, evaluation and testing, design, project management, costing, value engineering, international supplier management and enhancement, and more: this book provides a broad insight from the author’s over 40 years of experience in the plastics industry. Aimed at both technical and non-technical personnel involved with plastic product design and manufacturing, this book shows how having the big picture leads to effective solutions and high-quality products. Numerous case studies of product failures exemplify the key concepts. The reader will benefit from the author’s unique depth and breadth of knowledge and experience as a team manager and hands-on contributor in all aspects of plastics, involving extremely robust, mission-critical products. Judicious attention to fundamental engineering principles is always at the foundation but “people issues” are also brought into focus from the author’s background as a long-time international trainer and Six Sigma expert. The book is therefore an essence of all the experience gained along the way: the good, the bad, and the ugly. This book is unique among the many other fine books available in this subject area in that it is the perspective of one who has been in the trenches—as opposed to an academician, scientist, or other professional from a field with narrower scope, such as material science, tooling, or manufacturing. Hence, the HOLISTIC APPROACH. Contents: • Causes of Plastics Failure • The Holistic Approach • Plastic Materials • Design • Tooling Considerations • Processing • Secondary Operations • Part and Tool Costs • Six Sigma Techniques in Plastics • Further Reading and Reference Material With forewords by Glenn Beall, Louis Maresca, and Joe McFadden.

Models in Environmental Regulatory Decision Making Book Review:

Many regulations issued by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) are based on the results of computer models. Models help EPA explain environmental phenomena in settings where direct observations are limited or unavailable, and anticipate the effects of agency policies on the environment, human health and the economy. Given the critical role played by models, the EPA asked the National Research Council to assess scientific issues related to the agency's selection and use of models in its decisions. The book recommends a series of guidelines and principles for improving agency models and decision-making processes. The centerpiece of the book's recommended vision is a life-cycle approach to model evaluation which includes peer review, corroboration of results, and other activities. This will enhance the agency's ability to respond to requirements from a 2001 law on information quality and improve policy development and implementation.
