First year mechanical engineering students were introduced to injection molding during their practical for ‘non-ferro materials and production’. This class is part of the newly developed mechanical engineering curriculum. Here students look at the entire process of injection molding. This included theory about designing injection molding parts, molds, simulations of the actual injection molding, and the effects of the different process parameters on the produced parts. The students executed the practical portion of the assignment at the TPAC laboratory under guidance of our lab technician and injection molding expert, Remi Hoefman. Dick Mulder, senior lecturer at mechanical engineering is excited about the new class. ‘We are looking forward to further develop this practical Injection molding assignment and extend the cooperation with TPAC in the future’.
