Plastic Part Design

Plastic Part Design provides part designers with an understanding of the plastic part design process. This extensive, interactive online training program also addresses many of the factors and concerns associated with part design.

Dr. Robert Malloy, a respected author and professor at the University of Massachusetts, Lowell, developed these comprehensive courses.

Course 1: Product Development & The Prototype Process

  • The development & prototype process
  • Product development steps
  • Concurrent engineering
  • Computer simulations for design
  • Rapid prototyping and tooling processes

Course 2: Mechanical Behavior of Polymers

  • The mechanical behavior of polymers
  • Stress/strain curves
  • Visco-elastic behavior of polymers
  • Creep and stress relaxation

Course 3: Mold Filling, Gating & Weld Lines

  • Fatigue and cyclic stress
  • Gating & weld line considerations
  • Mold filling processes
  • Gate types, location, and importance
  • Weld line occurrence and strength determination

Course 4: Shrinkage, Warpage, & Part Ejection

  • How packing affects shrinkage and warpage
  • The effects of part geometry
  • Amorphous vs. semi-crystalline behavior
  • Ejection systems for simple and complex geometry

Course 5: Mechanical Fasteners, Press & Snap Fits

  • Assembly techniques
  • Snap fit design and considerations
  • Design for assembly and disassembly
