Hybrid Optimization Approach for Gas-Assisted Injection Molding Based on Metamodeling and Particle Swarm Algorithm
As a new plastic process technique, Gas-assisted injection molding has many advantages comparing to the traditional injection molding. Meanwhile, Optimization of Gas-assisted injection molding is more complex since many additional parameters have been introduced to the process. In this paper, a hybrid optimization approach based on metamodeling and particle swarm optimization algorithm is proposed and applied for Gas-assisted injection molding. Moreover, the validation of the approach will be illustrated through the optimization process of a real panel.
