Final Report - FOINMOULDS (Increase of the productivity and efficiency of injection processes through the use of metallic foam concepts in the production of moulds)

Project ID: 508647
Funded under: FP6-SME

Abstract

This is the final report of the FOINMOULDS project, which aimed to develop new aluminium high pressure die casting (HPDC), polymer injection and blow moulding mould concepts in which metallic foams were to be integrated to attain an increased efficiency in heat management control of the three processes.

The report begins with some scientific background on HPDC technology and then explains the project's objectives. It later presents the work performed, the experiments conducted and the results obtained, providing information on the advantages and potential impact and use of the newly developed technologies. Finally, there is a section on the knowledge dissemination actions.
