Are you a Plastic Part Designer, Process Engineer, and/or an Injection Mold Designer that needs real world answers to the following questions? Has my plastic part design been optimized to ensure optimal cycle time? How can I reduce tooling costs, lead time and eliminate tooling revisions? How can SolidWorks Simulation Technology leverage my Scientific Molding process?

Communication between the part designer and mold designer is crucial to keep the tool design and build on schedule. Increasing emphasis on concurrent part and tool design makes the associability with the part model data more significant than ever for faster reaction in the event of design changes. See picture below showing the new design methods using SOLIDWORKS. In the result of a drastic modification to the part, the mold designer should be informed immediately so they can evaluate the

The SOLIDWORKS Plastics eCourse is now available at MySolidWorks. This course guides you through the process of simulating the injection molding process early in the design stages. Using SOLIDWORKS Plastics, part defects such as short shots, gate blush, and air traps can be discovered and fixed well before tooling. In addition to this, parameters such as the injection location, the mold temperature, and the fill time can be optimized, ensuring the best possible part quality while reducing

Have you ever considered replacing your metal parts with plastic parts? It could be a viable option especially when it comes to the flexibility of manufacture, faster production cycle times, and cost-effectiveness of replacing metal parts with plastic parts. Here are some general best practices to keep in mind regarding both design and manufacturability: The best way to substitute a metal part with a thermoplastic part is to redesign the components, which should be based on the specific

Any college student will tell you that coffee is often a key ingredient to surviving those stressful days of college when hours of slumber are in short supply. When cost-conscious college students splurge on expensive to-go coffee from places like Starbucks or Dunkin Donuts, they want to savor every drop of that hot, precious beverage. Get sidetracked for a minute, however, and that hot beverage is suddenly not so hot, literally. To extend the amount of time your coffee stays warm, two recent

Of the 114,000 thousand plastics recognized by the Society of Plastics Engineers, roughly 600 are used in 3D printing processes. 3D printing materials are often referred to by their traditional names like ABS, nylon, polypropolene, etc., but be aware that many 3D-printed materials only mimic true thermoplastics. For example, a 3D-printed part in ABS-like material will have similar, but not identical, properties to a molded ABS part. Stereolithography machines can build parts from a number of

Well summer is just around the corner and my family is chomping at the bit to get down to the beach. Last weekend I cleared out the garage and dug out all our children’s beach gear, buckets, spades, and alike. Which got me thinking, could I a mechanical engineer with minimal plastics training, design a new sandcastle bucket that looks right and can be successfully manufactured? In order to keep the cost down, I decided that my sandcastle will be manufactured using the injection molding process.

If you have worked around the injection molding industry long enough, you have probably heard about the process of using gas to fill and pack-out thick-walled plastic parts (also known as internal gas assist injection molding). If you haven’t, you can learn more about it here. Internal gas assist for injection molding (gas assist) can do many great things for the plastic processor: reduce cycle time, decrease tonnage, eliminate sink marks, reduce part weight, and allow for injection molding

Wall ThicknessWall thickness is a major concern when designing a plastic part. During the injection of the mold the melted plastic flow front will always move in the direction of least resistance. You can think of this similar to water flowing through a pipe. The larger the pipe the easier the volume of water will flow.
