ICOMold Learning Center

Welcome to the ICOMold Learning Center! We’ve assembled a wealth of information relating to plastic injection molding here, all in one place. Want to know if your part design will be moldable, even before you submit a quote request? Visit the Part Design Guidelines page for tips on designing for moldability. Hear a term relating to plastic injection molding that you don’t understand? Look it up on the Molding Glossary page.

There’s also a “learning center within the learning center” over on the plastic injection molding knowledge base page, so be sure to check out the information in that section as well. One of the most-searched pages on our website is the page that explains how plastic injection mold shrinkage is calculated.

Last but not least, we provide engineering students their own Student Quote Demo tool to explore our instant online quotation system. It behaves just like our live plastic injection molding instant online quote system so students can see how it works, but it doesn’t actually submit a live request for quote.

We think the Learning Center provides a wealth of useful information regarding plastic injection molding, but if there’s something you would like to see us add, please don’t hesitate to contact us.
