Design for Plastic Injection Moulding Webinar | Rutland Plastics

Rutland Plastics has been working in partnership with customers for over 65 years.  From the initial design, through design for manufacture, the production of the injection mould tool and throughout the manufacturing process, they share their expertise and experience with customers. 

Rutland offer advice on optimising the choice of plastic material, part design and ease of production whilst minimising cost and impact on the environment.  They offer this free advice whether you are just starting the design stage, already have a mould tool and are looking for a production partner or just need extra moulding capacity.

Rutland Plastics has joined forces with Eureka to produce a webinar covering various aspects of plastic injection moulding design. The webinar includes information on mould tools, specifically the choice of material. A section covers which thermoplastics are suited to which applications, including case studies. Design for economy and the environment are also discussed, including bioplastics. The session concludes with an overview of common defects and how to overcome them.

Design for manufacture using the injection moulding process requires a certain approach, with the objective being to design products so that they are easily and economically manufactured, saving on cost, raw materials and energy consumption. Rutland advocates that you take the opportunity to tap into this support early in the design process as it helps de-risk the project and thus avoids costlier modifications later.

Rutland Plastics’ extensive range of over 30 state-of-the-art moulding machines means that almost all trade moulding requirements can be met. They can produce plastic parts from 1g to 45kg and up to 1.5m in size.  If you have a new design and need a tool making, already have a mould tool or need extra moulding capacity, they will be able to support your production needs.
