DFM Course 5: Injection Molding

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!

    on a case where most of the sections are 2-3 mm wall thickness, but theres one huge section which has upto 8 mm, will it work on production mold on a very huge injection moulding machine? any other processes which can be used instead?

    This video is very beneficial for injection moulding.. It’s tools are also very straight forward to mould more complicated die moulds…
