Abstract

A special mold technology enables the production of foam injection molded components with locally differing foaming ratios. Thus, components with functionally graded foam structures can be produced in one processing step. The method (pull and foam method) is based on the idea of creating components with thin-walled areas with a high surface quality and partially foamed, thick-walled areas (e.g. with the function of integrated structural elements) in a controlled foaming process. This paper describes the characteristics of the structure and density in the differentially foamed areas in correlation with the essential processing parameters.
