Whether a part is being 3D printed or injection molded, an effective design strategy will enable iterations and optimizations before manufacturing begins and adjustments become much more onerous. Down the line, it will accelerate time to market and increase profitability. That all hinges on a sound understanding of design for manufacturing (DFM) and design for additive manufacturing (DfAM) principles.


Kevin Hogan, CEO of Diversified Plastics Inc. (DPI), will address that and more during Virtual Engineering Week . Hogan is scheduled to speak on Dec. 3 at noon at the event, which runs from Nov. 30 to Dec. 4. “The positive impact of bringing a contract manufacturer into the development phase facilitates speed to market while improving quality and cost efficiencies,” Hogan told PlasticsToday . “Design for manufacturability is a powerful process for plastic injection molding. And design for additive manufacturing is valuable for parts produced […]
