How to save injection molding cost by Part thickness design reduction
By do the DFM (Design For Manufacturing) report and mold flow analysis to keep part thickness down to the minimum but having the same strength, we have reduced cooling times by as much as 31 seconds! As you can see by the table below example to show you how much you could save your injection molding cost, it doesn’t take a big annual volume for the savings to add up.
