Design for Manufacturing Course Injection Molding

Design For Manufacturing - DFM Course 5: Injection Molding

on July 25, 2014

Lecture five in the Design for Manufacturing Course focuses on one of Scott's favorite topics: Injection Molding. It’s really the core of the mechanical system for the hardware products built today. This lecture will cover a brief overview of injection molding, how the actual process works, and then spend time on part design. There’s really a unique series of design constraints that you want to follow in terms of best practice to make the best use of this process.

Also included, some of the tips and tricks of the trade that Scott has learned over the years. Watch the video and go through the accompanying slides to view the rest of the lecture!

Scott has been fascinated with hardware since he was old enough to hold a screwdriver. He worked on a robotic tuna fish, life-size robotic dinosaurs for Disney Imagineering, and robotic baby dolls with Hasbro, before joining iRobot where he was responsible for leading the Roomba team to scale the functional prototype to high-volume production of the first three million units.
