A 3D CAD knowledge-based assisted injection mould design system
In recent years the plastic product manufacturing industry has been growing rapidly. A very popular moulding process for making plastic parts is injection moulding. The injection mould design is critically important to product quality and efficient product processing. Mould-making companies, who wish to maintain the competitive edge, desire to shorten both design and manufacturing leading times by automating the design process. Thus, the development of a computeraided injection mould design system (CAIMDS) is becoming a focus of research in both industry and academia.
