The complexities of engineering a plastic part or product for use in a critical-use application must translate to moldability. If a molder is inexperienced in mold design and process optimization, there’s a good bet they won’t be familiar with methodologies essential for creating a highly efficient production process such as scientific molding and, more specifically Design of Experiments (DOE) within scientific molding. This article discusses key steps tool and process engineers take to ensure consistent and repeatable manufacturability of flawless molded parts.
Manufacturers of medical devices and other medical applications often turn to a complex injection molder for help correcting defects in their engineered plastic components. At Kaysun, we actively seek to prevent defects before they even occur by using a design for manufacturability (DfM) approach that incorporates a comprehensive mold flow analysis and extensive plastics engineering experience to identify any potential issues in the design phase and determine the best strategy to produce defect-free parts.
Complex injection molders entrusted with producing plastic components for medical and other critical-use applications assume a high degree of responsibility to ensure the device performs properly, without fail in sometimes life-endangering situations.
Injection molding is a complex, dynamic system with multiple, interacting factors—all of which impact performance, cost, and quality. One of these factors is the tonnage calculation, also known as the clamping force of the injection molding machine.
Plastic automotive components can be susceptible to rework, rejection and budget-breaking increases in total cost of production if the parts used contain molding defects. Often these defects evidence themselves during end product review — when it could be too late for a remedy.
When you approach an injection molder to produce critical-use plastic parts or components, determining if the product is suitable for the injection molding process is one of the first steps.
Defect-free, low-cost critical use injection molded parts are the intended result of any project. But, how do you get from start to finish and remain on time, on spec and on budget?
In a recent blog, we explored how injection molders can reduce automotive component costs and risks if they’re involved early in the design process.
But, how about the impact of the plastic automotive components themselves? What benefits can manufacturers realize in using them?
Braking, cooling, fuel delivery systems and the powertrain are all critical systems in automobiles that must consistently perform. Therefore, finding and partnering with an injection molder for these applications takes on added importance for a manufacturer.
