A Word on Designing For Manufacturability

Proper Design of BossesIn plastic injection molding, some part features must be designed a certain way, or problems can occur that result in undesirable appearance or functionality.

For instance, bosses can be used in a part to attach it to another part. Design a boss wrong, and you could have thick sections that lead to sink marks.

To help you avoid sink and other potential pitfalls in plastic part design, our Plastic Part Design Guidelines resource provides tips on Designing For Manufacturability (DFM). These tips help you avoid design mistakes that can lead to surface material and structural flaws in your plastic parts.

In addition to the Plastic Part Design Guidelines, there is a wealth of additional information available in the Learning Center section of our website.
