Design for injection moulding

Design for plastic injection moulding requires a certain approach and working with Rutland Plastics saves time and money and results in suitable plastic moulding designs from the outset.

Why use expensive external design services?

Here at Rutland Plastics we work in partnership from initial concept, through the injection moulding design stage using 3D CAD, to the making of the injection mould tool. All through that process, we share our expertise with customers and together we optimise the choice of plastic material, physical shape, ease of production, cost and performance.

We advocate that you take the opportunity to tap into this technical support early in the design process because it helps de-risk the project thus avoiding costlier modifications at a later stage.

DESIGN

You have an idea for a product or component but you do not yet have it fully developed. Not to worry.

We can work with you to take just an idea or sketch through to a finished product.

Free advice

In addition to the wealth of information freely available on our website, you can call us at anytime for help with your project.

Deliver on promise

We listen to what you want and work with you to achieve the results you need. Most of all it means delivering on our promise to you – every time.

DESIGN FOR PLASTICS

There are many things to consider when designing for injection moulding. That’s why our experts are here to help.

Rutland Plastics uses VISI Flow software to fine tune new mould designs, therefore, ensuring cost effective and reliable designs from the outset.

PROTOTYPING

Prototypes can also be arranged. Rutland Plastics has its own 3D printer capable of producing rapid plastic prototypes which will closely resemble the final injection moulded parts enabling you to fully test the part prior to investing in tooling.

NEXT STEP – TALK TO THE EXPERTS!

We can provide advice and quotes on anything from a simple sketch to a 3D computer model. Most drawing formats can be handled although we find STEP, Parasolid and DXF translate most successfully.
