Design News Radio: Get High-Quality Injection-Molded Parts Faster

Following some basic design rules can help you design successful plastic injection-molded parts. You can also get the parts that you want in less time than you expected.

A lot depends on the particular process you choose, whether the rules are bent, and by how much. Some of these rules can be bent if it's absolutely necessary for the design. But that means dealing with the costs and consequences.

During the Design News Radio Show on Thursday, July 11, at noon ET (9:00 a.m. PT), participants will learn how to use the injection molding process and work within its guidelines to make the most of its flexibility and enormous potential.

Join Tony Holtz, customer service engineer for Proto Labs, at our show, Speeding Up Development and Manufacturing: Get Parts Fast. He will discuss design, tools, material selection, and moldability issues and how to produce quality parts faster. Click here to register.
