Why need design ribs on the injection molded parts
Injection molding technology is the most common manufacturing technology for producing high volume of plastics parts in the world. The purpose of these parts can range from a picture frame that is never touched to a gear that is used in a moving assembly every day. Many times, the stiffness of a part must increase due to the load applied to the plastic part design. When designing strength into an injection molded part, considerations must be made to accommodate for the manufacturing process. This is where ribs and supports come into the design.
Ribs are thin wall protrusions that extend perpendicularly from a wall or plane. supports are […]
