Mold Flow Analysis is an essential step in product design as it will predict how to create the lightest, strongest, and most consistent parts from each cavity in the mold. Once you have selected your resin, the software will show an accurate prediction of the resin flowing into each cavity in the injection molding tool. This can benefit the design as it allows for optimized melt temperatures, perfected molding pressures, reduced fill cycle times, plus other variables before the first part is produced.
Rapid Prototyping allows the product design team the chance of creating a three dimensional scale modeled part from a Computer Aided Design (CAD). This rapid manufacturing technique can create an accurate physical representation of a design or concept, which allows you to see the design at scale and make changes to the design or manufacturing processes. It can also be used to generate quick samples for trade shows, proof of concepts, and is generally identified as a low cost option to produce a part compared to a full scale manufacturing process with complete injection molding dies. It is commonly used for a low volume of parts, whether the parts are plastic or metal, and can be optimized during the process as each part is made.
