|Abstract(s):||With the growth and demand for microinjection moulded thermoplastic parts becoming ever so popular, an increased need for determination and understanding of material mechanical properties at the micro-scale level is observed. One of the most widespread mechanical characterization experiments is the tensile test. The use of miniaturised tensile apparatus is therefore a need. In this work we developed a novel universal microtesting apparatus for performing mechanical tests in micro-mouldigs. The influence of injection moulding processing conditions on the mechanical behaviour of Polypropylene (PP) and Methyl Methacrylate-Butadiene-Styrene (MABS) microinjection moulded specimens is studied.|
