This project will look at the automotive industries use of injection moulding to manufacture parts, with a focus on the electric vehicle manufacturing sector. The manufacturing courses TMJ3M/4M will guide the curriculum expectations. The project will design and machine basic injection moulding parts with options around machine setup and materials. Students will produce parts through different injection mould processes. This will include a mould design and build process to create a basic plastic washer. Students will create an injection mould for a flat washer that can be used for the washer toss game. Injecting melted plastic will demonstrate the same principles that are used in the automotive industry. The washer toss box can be made using recycled materials.
