Plastic Injection Molded Components Design for Manufacturability

Crescent Industries engineers having extensive experience in custom plastic injection molding and injection mold tool building. We provide comprehensive Design for Manufacturability (DFM) analysis with mold flow simulation that includes part design guidance based on product lifecycle objectives. The DFM approach allows for a proactive approach to resolving processing problems, concerns, or possible quality issues before tool fabrication and manufacturing begins. Our injection mold design engineers can work directly with your engineering teams to ensure the manufacturability of parts to be custom injection molded. At the beginning of the design process, it is essential to seek first-hand knowledge of the injection molding process, which leads to better overall quality for your components. 

Our injection mold designing team uses 2D and 3D models to create mold designs that include the appropriate actions, gate locations, temperature control, and venting. As a product design review function, we invested resources into 3D printing (Additive Manufacturing) to support our clients with prototyping and parts for testing.
