Design Considerations for Robust Manufacturing and Assembly of Injection Molded Parts

About this event

Injection molding is often used to help mass manufacture complex dimensionally stable parts. A significant portion of the part cost is often determined by the component design. The use of traditional design for manufacturing (DFM) has helped designers optimize the individual manufacturability and cost of a component, but can often ignore changes in the design that may diminish the overall performance of the component in the end assembly. This webinar will move the conversation beyond basic part design rules and discuss how looking at the component design and end assembly may drive design decisions that could influence the manufacturability of the part.

At the conclusion of this presentation, you will understand:

  • How to use DFM principals to create more robust assembly features.
  • How to identify design features that could be integrated into your part design to reduce the need for tight tolerances, as well as how this may influence manufacturing.
  • What material data you may need to generate to drive those decisions early on in the design process.

Directly following this event we will host a live Q&A session for up to 30 minutes to cover DFM related questions.
