Plastic Part Quality

Manufacturing high-quality products requires a detailed understanding of all the interrelated factors that can affect the performance and aesthetic appeal of injection molded plastic parts.

Why part quality matters

Managing part quality in a carefully controlled way sets the stage for more efficient production, more reliable products, and a stronger financial position.

PREVENT DELAYS IN PRODUCTION

Discovering and mitigating issues such as weld lines and warpage long before parts are running protects tight production schedules.

MEET PART SPECIFICATIONS

Understanding how part quality issues affect critical requirements and dimensions enables engineers to design products that meet expectations for performance and durability.

PROTECT PROFIT MARGINS

Consistently outstanding part quality preserves the profitability of every project while strengthening key customer relationships.

Resolve quality issues with simulation

Powerful simulation tools help engineers make better and earlier decisions that avoid or mitigate common quality concerns.

Predict and prevent warpage

Nothing grinds a project to a halt faster than unexpected warpage. This eBook explains how mold engineers can use simulation software to detect and mitigate the risk of warpage earlier in the design process.

A quick guide to weld lines

Weld lines are the Achilles heel of injection molded plastic parts. In this report, you’ll learn what causes these defects, why they affect part strength and surface quality, and how to manage them more effectively with simulation software.

Direct from the industry

Asahi Kasei Plastics uses simulation to help mold engineers understand material characteristics and address part quality issues earlier in the design cycle.

“The number one reason we use Autodesk Moldflow is to help customers understand shrinkage and warpage, because the majority of the materials we produce are filled materials. They are more difficult for the customer to predict how they will behave.”

— Don Kosheba, Technical Services Manager, Asahi Kasei Plastics
