Plastic design guidelines to follow when designing plastic parts. By following a few simple design guidelines listed below one can achieve successful results during the moulding process and also produce plastic parts that are robust.
The formula for working out the developed length (unfolded length) of a bend where material tends to stretch or compress
during the forming process.
Clamping force The average pressure acting on the cavity perpendicular to the parting line will define the amount of clamp force required to hold the mold shut and inhibit flashing.
