Do you need to dig deeper into the injection molding process and research the options available?

We’ve created a handbook for designers and engineers, to give you a complete understanding of the process of designing injection molded parts.We started with the 10 Critical Questions in the video, and provided expanded information on what this means to your project.

In the handbook you’ll learn more about:

  • Designer and Supplier Considerations from goals to ownership and deadlines
  • Choosing the Right Injection Molding Technology for Your Application
  • Preliminary Design Specifications including material selection, use environment and compliance
  • Logistics and Processes from costs to testing

Designing Injection Molded Parts: A Handbook for Designers & Engineers also includes a checklist, so you can have your expectations defined. You’ll speak the language, and be ready with your goals, design specifications and cost considerations. Download the handbook today.

Your injection molding project will hit the ground running.
