Basics of thermoplastic foam injection molding

Demands for more sustainable solutions and increased functional integration can be met by foaming thermoplastics. The resulting lightweight construction due to the lower density is also a topic that is more topical than ever. This seminar will provide an overview of various processes, the associated machine and mold technology and, above all, the further processing of foamed plastics.
