In this on-demand webinar, we’ll discuss what leads to cosmetic defects in plastic injection-moulded parts, and provide tips that will help you improve part mouldability.

As with any manufacturing process, injection moulding comes with its own set of design guidelines. Understanding these best practices will help you design moulded parts that are both structurally sound and cosmetically appealing. In this webinar, we’ll discuss what leads to cosmetic defects in plastic injection-moulded parts and, provide tips that will help you improve part mouldability.

Why you should watch:

  • Discover the options available to you when designing around ejector pin layouts and gating locations
  • Develop an understanding of how the texture of your part can lead to a cosmetic defect, and how to ensure the desired finish
