The importance of DFM/DFT reports for Getting a successful product

Of all the best practices an electronic contract manufacturer (CM) should adhere to, perhaps the best differentiator to identify a leading CM is Design for Manufacturability (DFM) and Design for Test (DFT) reporting. DFM and DFT reports ensure customer (that’s you) satisfaction, quality control, and predictable costs. These reports should have detailed descriptions of the [...]

The process of the Plastic Product Customization

Product customization is an ultimate opportunity to cater to your clients without altering your production chain significantly. Small changes mean the world to clients when those changes are personal. Engraving products or altering the color of a component make the product feel special to the client – and they are when made to order through [...]

Some basic rules for designing plastic molded parts

Design engineers don’t have to be fluid dynamics experts to injection mold plastic parts without a hitch. The following rules will help engineers avoid problems when designing injection-molded plastic parts: Rule 1: Keep Wall Thickness Consistent Plastic part walls must be uniform in thickness. This is the most basic design parameter, and strict adherence to [...]

Moldflow Is Very Important To The Injection Mold Industry

Mold flow simulation is a crucial part of engineering and producing molded plastics for a range of purposes. Molded products requiring custom injection should always have a simulation done before producing a prototype, as this increases the chances of a successful product. With advances in technology, the in-house engineering team of a molded plastic manufacturer [...]

The solution of making complex texturing on mold surface

The mold manufacturing industry is constantly evolving. As a result, options for overcoming complex mold texturing challenges are evolving, too. Our complex marketplace demands new and innovative design possibilities with higher accuracy and tighter tolerances while keeping production times as short as possible. For example, some projects may require depth or detail unachievable by acid [...]

How to choose a hot runner system for resins containing fibrous materials

Here are five considerations that a hot runner supplier and a moldmaker/molder should discuss when using fiber-reinforced materials, such as those with glass filler, wood fibers (lignite in biomaterials) and wool fibers: 1) Tip selection: The key with tip selection is maintaining appropriate heat as close to the gate as possible, while maintaining a reasonable [...]

Mold design for public transport interiors

Industrial designers working on public transport interiors were historically held back with some unique design constraints. The brief usually includes making sure the part fits into the available space, keeping it functional but lightweight, and only then start considering the aesthetics. As manufacturers produce lower volumes of these parts, injection molding isn’t really an option [...]
