Injection Moulding of Polymers

The injection moulding (IM) technology plays an important role within the plastics industry. Being the technology driver in many branches, injection moulding shows by far the highest potential for innovation among the plastics processing technologies.

We at the institute of Injection Moulding of Polymers at the Department of Polymer Engineering and Science see our responsibility in contributing to the further development of this technology towards its highest economic efficiency. We focus on IM simulation, process control, special technologies and part inspection. We also regularly publish our results within the scientific community and the plastics industry, including SMEs. In academic and post graduate education, our main task is to teach our students in IM fundamentals, IM simulation and process control as well as in applied technologies in order to prepare them for a successful industrial career.
