Injection molds can fail after a certain period of use, which may compromise the final part’s integrity and quality, but that can be solved using welding repair processes. This work aimed to investigate the influence of AISI P20 molds repaired by Gas Tungsten Arc Welding (GTAW) and Nd-YAG laser-welding processes on the properties of injection-molded parts with semi-crystalline (polypropylene) and amorphous (polycarbonate and acrylonitrile butadiene and styrene terpolymer) thermoplastics.
