4 Benefits of Shooting Down Injection Molding Risk Possibilities by DFM and FMEA


Design for Manufacturability is a process that involves consciously designing products to optimize their lifecycle. This ensures that the right people, at the right time, have the most accurate and cost-effective ideas. DFM methodology aligns product development and manufacturing in the design phase, ensuring superior quality, cost, and regulatory compliance.


One of the most critical factors that DFM professionals consider is the failure mode effect analysis (FMEA). This process helps identify deviations in the plastic part analysis and helps minimize risk. Early identification of issues that could affect the manufacturability of a product can prevent costly problems.


FMEA is only one of the many technical factors that a DFM expert needs to consider when designing complex products. It also underscores the importance of partnering with an injection molder experienced in DFM to reap the following benefits.


The Main 4 Benefits of Injection Molding DFM Report


1.DFM Report Can Increase Confidences to Designers

The concept of shape and tolerance is the focus of DFM. Generally, processes that use advanced systems can help minimize deviations in shape. Having the right tools and procedures can help minimize deviations in shape and prevent costly and wasted projects. FMEA is used to identify potential issues and identify possible solutions. It helps engineers identify and prioritize the actions needed to minimize risk. DFM's ability to control risk in every stage of the process can help minimize uncertainties and increase the confidence of designers.


2.Process Capabilities Aligning With Technical Specifications

Moldfill analysis uses simulation software to predict the flow and cooling of plastic during the various phases of injection molding. It can also identify component and OEM part design elements. A wide range of analytical software is available to help you identify and improve your production processes.


3.Reduce Mold Changes and Modifications After Tool Building

One of the main advantages of DFM is being able to reduce the number of post-tool changes. Doing so can help save a manufacturer time and money. They includes:

● Simplifying tooling

● Identifying potential part moldability issues and solutions during the design phase

● Reducing injection molding cycle times

● Minimizing changes after tool build is all about finding practical solutions to project impediments that could jeopardize successful outcomes.


4.Fewer Components, Less Cost, Simplified Fabrication

Doing so can help minimize the number of components needed in a device or machine, which can result in lower overall costs and better customer service. DFM allows designers to make better use of limited resources and lower the cost of production by reducing the number of parts.


Who Benefits Most From DFM?

The many advantages of DFM are acknowledged by various industries and businesses. However, its value is most evident during the product development cycle. Since engineers may not be familiar with the details of plastic part design, they can benefit from working with a DFM practitioner. Having the right combination of skills and experience can help engineers collaborate seamlessly with DFM professionals. DFM is also commonly used by procurement and sourcing professionals for estimating the cost of a part and overall manufacturability. When performing DFM, make sure that the part is well-suited to its intended function and basic part structure. Usually, a 3D model is available to start the review.
