BookWith 40+ years of     experience, Vikram Bhargava has gained a one-of-akind depth and breadth of     knowledge of plastics. He is the author of the book “Robust Plastic Product Design: A Holistic Approach (Hanser, 2017)” that offers a broad insight into the plastics industry, including tooling, molding, secondary  operations, material selection, evaluation and testing, design, project  management, costing, value engineering, and international supplier     management and enhancement. His book is unique in the field in that it is  the perspective of one who has been in the trenches—as opposed to an     academician, scientist, or other professional in a field with a very narrow  scope, such as material science, tooling, or manufacturing. Join the select  group of molders joining the movement of taking on this holistic approach  to processing that gets to the real cause of the problem faster and yields better long-term results. Learn what every molder knows but is afraid to tell you.
