When companies are smart enough to take advantage of the expertise of their molding partners, the result is to have the most effectively molded parts possible.
There are many nuances and intricacies in the process of creating precision injection molded components. These fine details and comprehensions are best addressed by those who deal with them daily.
When presented with the challenge of producing medical parts, for instance, numerous designs and production issues such as aesthetics, design-function or maximized-optimization all need to be addressed.
Overcoming Intricacies: Medical Molding through Collaboration
All part designs must be mold-able. The mold and process must be well planned. Molding processes must incorporate very high levels of precision.
These are important considerations for any quality product emerging from any industry. Yet medical parts demand the highest available levels of expertise.
Poor designs create product flaws that present significant safety concerns. All weak-links in design or fabrication processes totally compromise the integrity of the final part - while leading to expensive redesign.
Collaborative efforts are the most effective approach for all involved parties to safely guarantee the parts are of the best design for ease-of-manufacture-ability.
To this end, designers should always rely on all expertise available from both mold-making partners and molding partners alike.
Highest Quality Parts and Design Emerge from Expert Cooperation
The most successful precision injection molded components are produced when the part designer, manufacturer and tool designer have all come together to offer ideas and input from the earliest possible stages of development.
Through this active, constant cooperation--any team of precision injection molded component designers can avoid the common molding snags and produce more efficient and cost-effective parts.
Confirm All Part Designs and Materials
The starting point for all quality production of finished pieces is part design. This drives the whole development process while setting the course for your precision injection molded components from mold design through production.
The specific features of any part’s design will hinder the tool-building and molding stages if not completely comprehended early-on in collaboration:
