Challenges

 

  

 Mold transfer from poor quality supplier

 Thin wall thickness: mold core shift creating inconsistency of wall thickness

Seal testing requirement

“Zero-Draft” design 

 

 

Approach

 

Mold design allowed for no-draft molding using specially configured slides to eject the part without damage  

Hot runner system reduced material costs and minimized forces on cores, improving thickness consistency

Results 

Improved the customer’s ability to receive reliable, consistent, quality parts
