Yarlagadda, Prasad K. (2002) Feasibility Studies On The Development And Evaluation Of Mould Inserts For Injection Moulding. In Taraman, K. & Salem, H. (Eds.) 2002 Pacific Conference on Manufacturing, Dec. 2002, Bankok, Thailand.
Due to advancement of science in the field of manufacturing and due to progress achieved over the past few years, the applications of rapid prototype manufacturing and rapid tooling has been increased significantly. Implementation of these rapid prototyping and rapid tooling techniques, has greatly helped the present manufacturing industries in reducing their lead-time; production costs and provides an excellent tool life. However the rapid prototype manufacturing and rapid tooling industry is affected with a major limitation associated with the accuracy achieved on the final product. In this paper, development and evaluation of mould inserts using powder sintering process is carried out. Attempts have been made to perform in depth studies and application of powder sintering process, which will eventually produce the final sintered components. In addition, analysis of the dimensional accuracy of the respective Stereolithography master models and the final sintered specimens is also carried out. The intelligent manufacturing systems test part with some modifications was used in the evaluation of the dimensional accuracy. The main reason of using this unique geometry is the suitability of its design for injection moulding process and moreover it helps to visualise the features better.
