Major research areas are concentrated on the
precision and innovative injection molding
processes including thin wall molding,
co-injection, gas injection, microcellular
injection, micro injection and in mold
present research focus on Computer Aided
Analysis for polymer processing and injection
molding analyses to achieve mold design and
process optimization. The true 3D simulation
system integrated with molecular dynamic was
Membrane Fabrication including Extrusion,
Rolling, Extension and Adhesion.
Applications of Research：
Plastics Components of 3C products
Preparation of the Polymer Base Bio-chip
Preparation of the Bipolar
plate for Fuel Cell
