Application

Sterilization Process Assurance Test Vial

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
