About this Book
The all-encompassing guide to total quality process control for injection molding
In the same simple, easy-to-understand language that marked the first edition, Total Quality Process Control for Injection Molding, Second Edition lays out a successful plan for producing superior plastic parts using high-quality controls. This updated edition is the first of its kind to zero in on every phase of the injection molding process, the most commonly used plastics manufacturing method, with an all-inclusive strategy for excellence. Beginning with sales and marketing, then moving forward to cover finance, purchasing, design, tooling, manufacturing, assembly, decorating, and shipping, the book thoroughly covers each stage to illustrate how elevated standards across individual departments relate to result in the creation of a top-notch product. This Second Edition:
Details ways to improve plastic part design and quality
Includes material and process control procedures to monitor quality through the entire manufacturing system
Offers detailed information on machinery and equipment and the implementation of quality assurance methods-content that is lacking in similar books
