10 Critical Considerations for Designing High-Quality Injection Molded Parts

Michael Paloian, president of Integrated Design Systems, Inc. discusses the challenges faced by product designers and engineers who are charged with the task of turning ideas into fully functional products that must comply with hundreds of critical specifications. These include ease of manufacturing (DFM—design for manufacturing), given that injection-molded part designs cannot be easily changed after molds have been machined. Mr. Paloian addresses the top 10 critical injection-molded part design considerations and the importance of collaborating with trustworthy molders throughout the design process.
