    Abstract

    The quality of tool-to-part rough surface topography replication in injection moulding has been investigated. Quantitative descriptors suitable for detecting process conditions induced topography changes have been identified using a statistical criterion. The experimental work is based on a tool surface with Sq = 4.6 ƒÝm manufactured by EDM and a commercial polypropylene grade. 3D surface characterisation was carried out with a laser focus detection profiler. The investigation reveals that replication quality indices as measured with several established 3D topographical parameters are significantly sensitive to process conditions.
