Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Injection molding is actually one of the most complex manufacturing processes for producing plastic parts. The quality of products strictly depends on several factors and how to optimize process parameters is the key issue for improving products and process. The topics that will be investigated and presented in this Special Issue will focus on material characterization, process optimization, novel simulation techniques, the enhancement of production efficiency and automation. Academic and industry contributions will be accepted.
