Good industrial designs can accelerate production time and reduce production costs. You can find design tips here for creating plastic and mental parts by CNC machining, injection molding, urethane casting, 3D printing, sheet metal fabrication, and so on.
The client asked for design with no screws, so we chose clips. However, the clip hook was broken during drop testing, what should we do?
Learn how to design proper clips to ensure both the function and durability.
When the standardized parameters like the hole diameter, taper, threaded hole diameter and pitch and pressure angle in design, clamps and measuring tools can be used to reduce the specialized operation and realize time and cost efficiency in manufacturing
The earlier you start thinking about application in the design process, the more effective and economical your finished design will be. This design tip will help you keep in mind a frequently overlooked consideration—Assembly.
Holes designing are crucial for the connection of drilling parts, and it can directly affect the manufacturing difficulty and cost. To realize on-budget and time-efficient CNC manufacturing, here 5 design guidelines about holes for your CNC drilling parts
The sharp corners should be avoided in the plastic parts, as it can impede from plastic melt flow, causing flaws on parts. Meanwhile, stress concentration can be easily generated in the sharp corners and further reduces the strength of parts.
Have you considered the machining requirements for part when you are designing the CNC machining parts? On the premise of meeting the function, cosmetic appearance and reliability of products, the design of CNC parts should be easy for manufacturing.
Have you considered optimizing the part design to increase part quality, while cut down the manufacturing cost and time? There are design tips about ribs and undercut you could refer to.
Do you know how to increase manufacturing efficiency for your CNC parts? There are 4 design tips about clamp in CNC Machining.
How to choose the most suitable service provider to help you get the real products or prototypes from design work? Here are four key points you should concentrate on and verify when selecting the manufacturer.
Product design is the core of the entire industry chain, producing the maximum added value. While the product manufacturing is at the bottom of the industry chain, it generates the minimal added value.
Are you aware of a component does not create added value, while is significant and indispensable for products? That is fasteners.
The smallest design decisions can have a significant impact on the cost of your CNC machined parts.
Manufacturability refers to the ability of a part to be manufactured at a lower cost and higher quality.
Parts shall be of proper dimensions so that operators or robot arms can catch them and assemble them easily, not too small or too heavy.
It can decrease the waste of time and energy dedicated to custom parts, and shorten the development cycle of the products.
The quality of non-standard component is related to the normal running of whole equipment and material is the key factor for quality, so for designer, it is really important to know the performance and application of different material well.
Here are 3 general rules you should keep in mind when you select the materials among the numerous options, and the rules may help you get the best option.
The client asked for a design with no screws, so clips are chosen. However, the clip hook was broken during drop testing, what should we do? Here are Design tips for clips.
Under the premise of ensuring the function and quality of the product, simplified design and fewer parts can reduce product cost, shorten product development cycle and improve product development quality.
