Plastic injection molding technical data and secondary operations

Rib thickness and rib height Rib thickness is recommended to be 60% to 80% of nominal wall thickness; Rib height is recommended to be 3-4 times of nominal wall thickness
Plastic injection mold draft 0.5 -2 degree for the wall side which shrinks onto the mold in part releasing
Plastic injection molded part wall thickness consideration Uniform wall thickness is recommended to reduce Sink marks, Residual stresses, Voids, Warpage. 0.06″ – 0.16″ is considered to be normal wall thickness range.
Plastic injection mold construction
Steel Mold life (roughly estimated) Steel hardness
H13 1 M 52-54 HRC
738 0.8 ~ 1 M 45-50 HRC
718 0.8 M 45-48 HRC
P20 0.5 M 30-35 HRC
1045 (less used) 0.3 M > 22HRC
Normal lead time Tooling and sample: 3 weeks – 5 weeks. Complicated parts take longer.
Secondary operations
  • Painting
  • Screen Printing and Pad Printing
  • Ultrasonic Welding
  • Machining
  • Assembly

Engineering assistance

Impact simulation of a cone shaped plastic cushion

Engineering: Based on request, IQE can provide the following services for our customers:

  • CAD model development from your sample;
  • Stress analysis, which helps in knowing whether the design is adequate and optimized, and what changes are needed before the physical part is made;
