Bradley Chalkers IS the oldest kid in the fifth grade. He tells enormous lies. He picks fights with girls. No one likes him--except Carla, the new school counselor. She thinks Bradley is sensitive and generous, and knows that Bradley could change, if only he weren't afraid to try. But when you feel like the most-hated kid in the whole school, believing in yourself can be the hardest thing in the world. . . .
Although the basic injection molding technology has not changed much since the publication of the 3rd edition of Injection Molding Machines, there has been considerable progress in certain process applications that make special demands on machinery and their control functions in particular. The book provides an elegant, succinct description of the injection molding process. By concentrating on a few key parameters, such as pressure, temperature, their rates and their influence on the properties of moldings, it provides a clear insight into this technology. The subsequent comprehensive presentation of technical data relating to individual machine compents and performance is unique and will be especially appreciated by practitioners.
