Practical Solutions for Designing Complex Plastic Injection Moulds - IMTMA/D018

Programme Background

Today many commercial tool rooms complain that they are not profitable. At the same time they are unable to meet their delivery commitments. Designers spend time on shop floor to resolve problems and tool room engineers in the design department seeking clarifications. Rework of the Die or Mould is an accepted fact; after all moulds are not expected to work right the first time. Does any of this sound familiar? Why do users want to import moulds? Is it because they work right the first time? What needs to be done as a designer to make plastic injection Moulds and Dies First Time Right? As product life cycle reduces, new product development is no longer desirable but essential for survival. The foremost challenge faced by the tool rooms are shorter lead times for tool development and stringent quality requirements. Tool design is a very crucial phase, directly affecting both lead time and quality. If designs are robust and built upon Design for Manufacture (DFM) concept, tool manufacturing and assembly would definitely become much faster, without needing any modifications after the first trial. Often the customer inputs and the product design are not sufficient for carrying out the tool design process, resulting in longer design lead time, leaving lesser time for tool manufacturing.
